Re: The Topic I never Wanted To Post

Infact the only way I can make Aikido work for me at all anymore is by adding Atemi.
Aikido "technique" works when uke becomes unbalanced. In order to create this unbalance, some sort of Atemi is usually required. I would suggest continued study with this in mind.

Also, have some patience with yourself. While 8 years is a significant time in study, it is only a beginning.
