The most common way to throw under the leg is throwing under the same leg: if you're using your right hand, you throw under your right leg. You can also throw under the opposite leg (e.g. throwing with the right hand under the left leg). If you squat down or jump, it's possible to throw an object under both legs at the same time.
Normally if the right hand throws under either leg, it moves under the leg from right to left, and then throws on the left side of the leg. A more difficult variation is to move your hand under your leg in the opposite direction: move your right hand under either leg from left to right, and throw from the right side of your leg.
An under the leg catch is an under the leg throw in reverse: you lift your leg up into the pattern, reach under your leg with an empty hand, and catch an object in this position.
