Re: atemi

Just something on the side (pls take it with humour)... if atemi can be anything used to distract the uke, then maybe some very unconventional techniques like, biting, spitting into the eyes, ramming your forehead against the nose are fairgame too?
My interpretation of atemi is anything that will off balance your attacker. From what you mentioned in the quote to a big fat kiss. It works.
