I would like to ask what kind of strikes or attacks aikido employs. I rarely see striking techniques in aikido books or demonstrations but i heard that atemi is a vital part of aikido.
So what kind of striking moves does aikido use? Straight punches? Knivehand? Or even kicking?
Please tell me.

Pre-war "aikido" yes. Post-war, not as much emphasis on atemi. I believe the change is due to O'Sensei's spiritual enlightenment.

There’s a good deal of "sword hand" combat if you know where to look. This is mostly due to the fact that aikido is synthesized from sword techniques.
