Originally posted by Chuck Clark There is a lot more to understanding "atemi" than just striking or hitting to injure. Atemi also means to "stun" and can be a major part of any stragegy of waza. It can be done with any amount of energy and speed. Depends on what you're using it for.
Hi Chuck - you've been quite lately. I'ld also like to add that it can involve other parts of the body besides the hard points. Irimi nage is an atemi waza for example.
