Re: atemi is 90% of Aikido

Trouble is, once the fast strikers breach my maai, its almost impossible to do any aikido on them. In that I mean be it techniques, or just plain blending. Correct me if I'm wrong here ok. But is the ultimate physical aiki being able to blend with opponents no matter the speed? Because I'm not getting there.
I don't know whether this helps, but with fast strikers, I tend to find ura movements easier. The techniques seem to last a bit longer in ura and give you more time to dissipate uke's energy.
