Re: atemi is 90% of Aikido

I think that this whole topic comes back to the question , does Aikido work on the street, I beleive and know without any atemi or distraction that the moves we learn within Aikido would not work! I know that as restraining moves they're good but when you are being confronted by somebody I beleive to use Aikido you require good atemi to give yourself time, if nothing else .
