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
Which cut? Irimi nage contains as many as three, depending on the variation.

Why would I want my bicep anywhere near uke's throat?

I'm shorter than most of my training partners. If I'm going to do irimi nage, ideally the initial turn will bring his head down to the level of my chest or lower. If I manage that, why on earth would I want to raise him back up?
