Re: Ki and Technique...

The clip you provide Erick looks like it would play well in certain clubs in San fransisco!

We do not train with kiai as a systematic part of our aikido, so what you speak of is unfamiliar to me. What I do find though is that if I am thrown powerfully with ki, then a kiai type sound comes out of me sponaniously, if I am thrown without, no sound comes out. I don't know what the explanation to this is, it's just the way it happens.


Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.
