Speaking of Centaur's and Judo/Jujitsu, I fidn it hard to believe you coudl
throw any four legged creature.  Judo throws are based on the inhearent
instability of human beings.  Things topple when their center of gravity
moves beyond its base.  In thecase of a quadraped yo uhavea very large,
very stable base.
