Re: atemi is 90% of Aikido

My favorite variation on this comes from a senior student at the dojo I train in: "Atemi is 90%, uke's face is the other 10."
Whichever way it goes, I think atemi is immensely important to aikido...or at least mine.

Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
