Atemi Waza

Classification of striking techniques

Atemi waza are methods of striking an opponent, and the two major groups are strikes using the arm or hand, and those using the legs.

The ude ate (strikes using the arm) are subdivided into yubisaki ate (fingertip strikes), Kobushi ate (punches), tegatana ate (knife-hand strikes) and hiji ate (elbow strikes).

The ashi ate (strikes using the legs) are subdivided into hizagashira ate (knee strikes), sekito ate (kicks using the ball of the foot) and kakato ate (kicks using the heel).
