Re: Ki and Technique...

I have been taught that using Ki in our techniques will add potential, is that true?
I guess it depends on what is meant by using ki. Defining ki is important or else we're not speaking the same language and transmitting genuine meaning.

Example when I see an open spot while open sparring and I make a strike adding a 'kihai!' will add strength. is this tue for all techniques?
Entering into a real opening will definitely always add strength to a technique.
