Don’t do it.
Wherein by kiai, I mean an audible vocalization during technique.
Best… Blog-post… ever!
Dee tells a story about Kanai Sensei giving a lecture in Atlanta about the inapplicability of kiai in Aikido.
It was before my time, so I don’t know the details.
But seriously…look to your own experience. Do the shihans teach kiai? Have you ever seen kiai taught at a seminar?
Was it done in class?
No, not recently.
This came from a conversation Dee, Ryan, and I had following a Sunday bike ride at Starbucks.
