Please be aware that all of this is a vague recollection of a book on the
subject that I read at least ten years ago... From what I understand, 
modern "sport" Judo is formed from 4 out of 5 of the "disciplines" that 
its more ...hrm... "practical" ancestor possessed. Each of the disciplines 
had a name and a set of manuevers and methods. They covered ground work, 
throws, and I don't remember the others.

At any rate, the discarded discipline had a charming name that meant
"fighting dirty". It was the eye-ball-gouging, monkey-picking-the-peaches
sort of ickiness that is usefull in "real" fights.

Sorry if this is rather vague and probably factually flawed. The import
thrust of what I wanted to bring up was that modern Judo is a sanitized
version of its less-civilized ancestor.
