In my own experience, having the positioning and alignment that I would need to strike successfully dramatically reduces the chance that I will actually need to use an atemi.
That's how I feel. At each moment, is my position and structure optimal relative to my partner? If I *could* attack well, then yes. If my *partner* could attack well, then no.
