Re: Does Atemi have to work

I believe atemi,s need to be thrown from the start of your aikido training for training purposes we don,t throw them hard for the obvious reasons but uke,s should be able to block nage,s atemis but if your intent is not there your opponnent or adversary may continue his pursuit I say show your intent to knock there head off if your confronted outside the dojo by violent people.
