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...

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
