Does saying certain phrases help to invoke power from within?
The Karate people say all kinds of phrases while delivering a punch
or kick, and these phrases each correspond to a certain attack.
when I said something like ,"HIYAAAAA!!!"
My sword swings would be harder
Can someone remind me? Is it breathe in while working the muscle,
then exhale while releasing the muscle? is that right?
According to this Japanese Master, the "kiai" sound
we use in martial arts , can sometimes be deadly ..
I tried the strike with a "ha"! and a "ho"
"Ha" has much stronger in my opinion
