Some things I were wondering that I didn't see covered...in the names of the different attacks, are strikes generally knife hand strikes, striking with the same edge you'd use in a karate chop? Are thrusts always referring to punches?
Pretty much.

Do the strikes in Aikido come from other Asian martial arts that I could use as a reference?
Movement in aikido is typically attributed to practice of the sword.
