I must make an amendment to the above post. In the full heyday of full-contact Karate and American "Kickboxing" of the 70's Judo style throws were allowed. They had to be done off of a sweep, or right as a clinch is initiated. This clip here is proof. Benny "The Jet" Urquidez absolutely flattens his opponent with a hane-goshi (curtousey of one "Judo" Gene LeBell whom Benny had trained under). The fight is ruled a no contest due to the fact that it was held under MT rules, and not Full Contact Karate rules.

Go figure...
