A pre-Lutteroth era figure, Mitsuyo Maeda was a Japanese judoka toured Mexico and parts of South America in the 1910s and 1920s using the name Conde Koma. His bouts are described to be mostly exhibitions of skill, rarely matches as we'd think of them, and likely more shoots than choreographed (though this article does not attempt to be definite in any way on that.) His time in Brazil was responsible for the creation of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. More could be found in his wikipeida bio.
