Yep that's what I also meant. Using an Atemi BEFORE going for a lock or takedown.

How many times are people going to move the goalposts to "well if you stun him by punching/kneeing/calling in an airstrike first these throws work". I bet if I smashed a bottle over his head first I could win a fight by gooch bomb, that doesn't mean throwing my gooch around is a martial art.
I have no clue what you are talking about, but could you give some sensible arguments why this is 'moving the goalposts'?
Ah i get it...the last it's your standard post signature..silly me.
True, but at the same time, some moves need setting up, that's true for any art.
