Re: Real aikido question

I checked the site a little,

Ending a technique with atemi is normal in other Budo ,
but in the kind of Aikido I've been taught so far it is a big no-no,
Atemi should come first and be an option to determine the situation.
Ending techniques with atemi is violence or Budo - not Aikido.

Otherwise the level seems OK
