Atemi Jutsu: The Art of Striking the Body


Atemi Jutsu teaches techniques of striking vital areas. All manner of strikes with the hands, arms, elbows, feet,or knees are employed, based on our common principles.

Atemi Jutsu techniques were developed for fighting opponents in armor; the strikes had to penetrate the weak points in a suit of armor, which mirrored the musculature. Atemi jutsu teaches how to manipulate an opponent to expose the weak points in the natural armor of the body, so that strikes can be devastating.
