Atemi month recap

This month the theme has been atemiwaza - the role of striking techniques in aikido and judo. I got side-tracked a little bit with a family vacation and didn't post all the ideas I had outlined for this month, but that just gives me more follow-up material for later articles. Also, I sort of got side-tracked onto shomenate as a specific example of atemiwaza, but that's okay. Shomenate is rightfully the basis of all the atemiwaza, which can be seen as the foundation for all other technique. Following is a list of the articles I wrote this month about atemiwaza:
