This is a good subject to discuss, imho i think there are many atemi 'hidden' within our aikido techniques.

Similar to the applications (bunkai) with karate kata.

I was recently shown a kaiten nage, which included an atemi strike to the back of the neck (shuto uchi) and when the hip was brought through for the projection a knee strike to the face.

I had never seen these atemi before.
