Re: Playing around with Atemi

If you get an opportunity, check out some Russian Systema stuff. My impression is, they have systematized a lot of what you are talking about. They practice not only different striking methods, but ways of receiving strikes and "dispersing" the energy through the body. I plan to get to one of the seminars sometime, or at least observing a few classes next time I am somewhere that there is a practicing group (South Texas isn't exactly a hotbed of martial arts centers).
