I love Atemi, but I see what you mean about it being overemphasised sometimes. I've seen peoples atemi kill all the flow of the technique they were trying to perform. Some people forget that atemi can be done with any part of the body and get wrapped up in striking the face. I love to sneak a kick in as uke charges forward, its great for disrupting them and breaking their balance.

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
