With all the talk about IP/IS, does Judo use it?

I haven't seen it discusses yet.
From Aikido Shugyo (p.76) by Gozo Shioda:

Another important point is that kokyu power is not limited to Aikido alone. Originally, it was certainly a part of all Japanese martial arts. While it was referred to by different names, Judo, Karate or any of the various other martial arts all had ways of practising kokyu power. But somewhere along the line it fell into disuse. I believe that therein lies the decline of Japanese martial arts.
