    Why make jokes about kiai?

    I didn't say ringing a bell would win in a fight :P.

    So you were serious? Really? So if I start yelling and screaming while flailing my arms at someone, am I now a kiaijutsu practitioner?

    Tongue in cheek aside, a kiai is a part of the system it's used in, not a system or skillset of it's own. Just because we have a certain style of footwork in our system doesn't mean we practice ashijutsu.

    Could you provide a reference for this train of thought? Because right now, it's not looking too convincing.


    Sanke on the move.

    I admit that I'm a little bit curious about the claim. Can you please clarify what it is you are saying? The image that I have of your claim is a person standing some distance away from a traditional inverted-cup shaped bell, giving a loud, sharp, short shout, and then the bell rings loudly, reverberating for a period of seconds.

    Is this an accurate presentation of what you are referring to?

    Peace favor your sword,

    Re: Does anyone know about "Kiai?"

    There was a thread about someone using a martial art they called "kiai" on another forum. It turned out to be a Daitouryu-aikido school that focused on "energy training." Claimed they could harness their KI and effect people and things from a distance.

    This video is of the instructor demoing his Ki skills:

    Here's a vid of a challenge match someone with some mma training had with the instructor. At the start of the vid, you can see the instructor demoing his KI power with his students.

    Train hard, Stay Safe and as always, YMMV.
