It is not that the techniques fail, it is simply that they are not the easiest to pull off. I have had some success with some aikido style techniques in sparing, but they are few and far between for me.
A stunning strike would to need pave the way for my technique to be effective in a realistic situation. Without a good atemi I just don't see this stuff working, but then again i'm a striker at heart and my aikido needs some work..
