high punch?


shomen uchi, yokomen uchi, and tsuki are the only strikes i've learned to defend against. while i'm not exactly sure why, it's probably because i'm still at the point where i start each technique holding hands with someone, and also because i'm not ready for advanced stuff yet.

my question is: what about a high punch? these are fairly common. if someone is trying to punch you, they could easily go for the temple, throat, shoulder, chest, etc. as far as i'm concerned it's a pretty common punch.

does Aikido not train you for this, or am i missing something?
