Aikido and Judo/jujitsu

Hello everybody , i practice Aikido for a year. i have 2 questions.
Aikido as a martial art has Thousands of techniques and it delivers from jujitsu.i was wondering if contains grappling(newaza) and submission moves , if not why is that so ? if yes why they are rarely showned.
I have seen people using atemi and i know that the art contains all kind of atemi(kick knees punch elbow).i understand that we should not use them all the time but why they dont teach us how to strike rightly.
sorry about my english
