Atemi as I understand it refers to strikes which in themselves are not the end product of technique but rather can help to set up technique.

I bring this up since I disagree with ChrisinBrazil in his interpretation of atemi, but agree with him that atemi (even the "striking" definition I have given) have been practiced throughout the ranks everywhere I have trained.

...Or I could just be talking.


It's a sad irony: In U's satori, he forgot every technique he ever knew; since then, generations of doka have spent their whole careers trying to remember.
