They are inextricable to me. Technique does not occur without kuzushi, and I am currently trying to make every kuzushi an atemi with my entire body.

The above may be plausible If you view atemi as a separate component of aikido; however my teacher taught me otherwise.

Re: Atemi waza: good or bad for Aikido?

I've only scanned this thread, so forgive me if this has been brought up already. Ellis Amdur has a great chapter on atemi in Dueling with O'Sensei in which he suggests some exercises to incorporate the intent of atemi in one's daily practice. I recommend.

Ai symbol Atemi waza: good or bad for Aikido?

Atemi is a tool to create a state AIKI, that allows to harmonize to us with the aggressor, being generated physical-emotional imbalance and thus techniques can flow freely, without opposition nor resistance.

Does not exist technical of Aikido that does not work without a previous imbalance, not always imbalance by displacement will be able to be obtained that takes to the instability of uke and not always the energy given by the aggressor will be able to be used. Atemi waza allows to accumulate the energy of a static attack, later to release it of explosive way with our additional energy
