guys, where do you usually cut? Are you looking for the throat/neck when cutting with iriminage? You put your biceps in the throat, then raise it, and drop forward?

well, because last night some small guy said iriminage is clearly a technique to be used in such disadvantageous position for a small guy like him
None of the above. after his center has passed mine, I either do a kokyu wave coming up uke's front and breaking over/behind his head or I come straight up his center line with my hand. Relative heights of no consequence because if I haven't brought uke to my level well before this then there is no finish.
Then again, I'm not a guys
