Re: My Experiences in Cross Training MMA with Aikido

Reuben thanks for sharing. My only thoughts would be that atemi is not just limited to the strikes common to aikido or even strikes in the conventional sense. Atemi is perpetual and allows you to make a connection to the partner.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
