Our term for the throw in question has always been Men-nage.
Men=head, nage, (of course) =throw
I have always liked all the various names for techniques...it is interesting to hear all the different variations.
HEY! I know that throw!!
Quibble: "Men" does not mean head, it means front side or surface.
I have never heard of men-nage, but of course there are all sorts of names floating out there.
