Atemi: The Thunder and Lightning of Aikido by Walther von KrennerAtemi: The Thunder and Lightning of Aikido revisits the source of the art by teaching the striking methods that made Ueshiba’s techniques so effective. This is the most comprehensive text on striking in Aikido, and it begins with the notion that strikes should not be disregarded in modern dojo. It explores the common (yet mistaken) notion of atemi as a secondary aspect of Aikido, and argues that such an idea is incorrect, since O-Sensei’s own teachings reveal that striking is the very core of the art.
The authors describe through brilliant and specific examples and clear photographs, how atemi is used in Aikido pins and throws while still keeping with the physical philosophy of the art. The journey continues as they then demonstrate how Ueshiba Morihei and some of his most important students viewed atemi and technique as one, instead of separate aspects of the art.
The text is divided into three sections: Shodan (beginner’s level), Chudan (intermediate level), and Jodan (advanced level). The final chapters suggest ways that O-Sensei taught his students how to develop internal power, which can be channeled into Aikido’s powerful strikes. Atemi: The Thunder and Lightning of Aikido presents a thorough explanation of O-Sensei’s teachings and suggests that many practitioners have only scratched the surface of the art’s true nature.

"The land owns us"
My Kitchen Rules, Yes yes it does! Belle goes into the kitchen and knocks her Kangaroo Kofta's out of the park. As we live in this fast pace society where technological advancements exist, we tend to neglect the things that are happening outside our community. If we only can see the world beyond our comfort zone, where we can realise that life never ends with the things that we already knew. There are more to be discovered in this world, just like the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders ways of living. Focus on culture-centred and traditional living which has been practised over millennia is and will be a part of our communities for all of time. For us to know more of this, let us first go deeper in understanding my communities and all Indigenous communities.
Indigenous Australians are the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of Australia , groups that existed before European colonisation. During that time, they have offered remarkable wisdom that counter much of what we are taught in the west. It is a spiritual feeling, an identity you know in your heart. We endeavored to live with the land; they seemed to live off it. I was taught to preserve, never to destroy. I look after.
