Salto/Suplex in Judo?
Does Judo teach the wrestling salto/suplex as a technique?
I freely admit to having so little Judo experience that it's completely inconsequential, and all the guys I know that do it learned from wrestling.
Any Judoka here trained/taught the technique? I assume that it's identified by a traditional Japanese name if so. That would be helpful too...

I think the uranage is the closest you'll get to a suplex in classic judo.

Ushiro Goshi (back hip throw) is reasonably close, except you go the the side and not back. Kata Guruma (shoulder wheel) is like a sideways suplex. Sukui Nage (scooping throw) is reasonably close though uke (your opponent) starts at your side and does not go directly over you. Tomoe Nage (circular throw) is similar, but it is a full throw, you don't hold on like in a suplex. Those are just off the top of my head, but they are the only ones I can think of that are close, but I am unaware of the use of an actual suplex in Judo."Keep a sharp knife, shiny boots and be on time."

Uranage, the Soviets were famous for it...

From my VERY limited knowledge of Judo (I know a guy that did Judo 4 years ago)
there are no real suplexes in Judo.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
