Atemi-waza (当て身技): Striking techniques. Although used within informal randori (乱取), striking techniques are forbidden in standard judo competitions rules. I’m searching material about atemi waza. I’m asking myself especially if there is a techniques similar to a hook punch of western boxing?. When Shihan Jigoro Kano developed his new method of jujutsu, Kodokan Judo, he established three major technical groups: nage waza.

Nowadays, judo is practiced mainly as a sport competition, giving priority to nage waza and katame waza, while atemi waza and the study of vital points kyusho are hardly practiced.
After many years of researching, compiling and translating old writings with Jigoro Kano’s opinion about atemi and self-defense, we have performed this study of the official classification of atemi and kyusho, where are included unpublished documents of the founding master of Judo.
When you open the book and see the recommendations by Bruce R. Dabauza and Ricardo Mercado Sierra you know jufo the book is not from “mainstream judo”.
The good thing is that they do caution you “color book” and color with bold fat font has been used, similar to someone who just has found atemi-wazs after black and white there are colors and some parts can be made bold. The main line is; Where is the Judo atemi-waza and the book tries to answer “here”.
It is true that atemi waza was part of many Japanese schools. The first 60 pages is spent on putting together information from official Kodokan sources of the meaning and purpose of Judo. Putting together information means that one is quoting without proper references. So the reader does not know what is fact and what is opinion. The obvious goal is to “prove” to the reader ayemi-waza atemi waza was an important part of Judo.

The discussion is nice, but having almost the full page with bold font kind of destroys the reading pleasure. It is true that Atemi waza is part of various Judo kata and part of self-defence in Judo. But being interested in Atemi and having defences against atemi does not mean that attacking with atemi was ever a goal in Judo.
The obvious Kano and Funakoshi discussion is there, which has been discussed to death. To me the point is that Kano was interested in new things and all forms of self defence.
This does not mean that he actively promoted every and all methods he was interested in as integral part of his Judo.
In the 30 page juudo about vital points this book referes to Takenouchi ruy jujutsu, Seigo ruy jujutsu, Kyushin Ichi ruy jujutsu, Sekiguchi ruy jujutsu, Shinto ruy jujutsu, Tenjin Shinyo ruy jujutsu without further reference to the documents of those arts.
The book finishes with 25 pages of photos showing how to do the atemi in various kata of Kodokan Judo. Not the defence, but just the attack.
Judo Kodokan atemi waza
So apart of the awful type and colors the book is solid, but does not IMHO bring any new vital info to Judo. Without looking at the book, Atemi-daza am convinced that they missed the point on atemi in judo. There are some very well documented discussions of the importance of atemi waza in the prewar Kodokan.
Those discussions are not mentioned in the main histories of judo; I am not sure why but then again, newaza also gets almost no mention, either.
I will disclose a lot of this and other lost some hidden aspects of judo history in a later book. NBK, any guess as to when your book might be published? I’m a bit long in the tooth now and would like to see the result of your efforts while Ahemi-waza still can see.
Sounds like an enormous amount of research and work. All the best with it. I look forward to reading it. One of the more interesting aspects of this complex man Atemi-awza trying to frame was his thoughts and actions regarding women. He had fairly traditional thoughts for the time, and sometimes promoted those thoughts in terms that would drive Stacey and other modern ladies around the bend.
At any rate, despite certain personal writings that would seem misogynistic, but at the same time championed judi education of women, and had ground breaking efforts to set up judo instruction for women at a time that such things really were not done in Japan. No one should try to learn judo from the internet.
Perhaps not coincidentally after this thread started I finished reading an article by Kano shihan about atemiwaza. Written in the Showa era not in a Kodokan related publication, he talks of the importance of atemi waza in effective judo training. He also admits that he himself had not much experience in large competitions, but rather mostly depended on his stronger students.
He also notes that randori for ‘old men’ is pretty much impossible, but that striking technique practice is suitable for men and women, young and old. He then oddly cites the historic example of the Kodokan tournament with the Totsuka dojo in ‘around or ‘.
