Re: Proper Breathing

Are there exceptions to that rule? Especially when there are more than one cutting motions in the technique? Would 2 sets of breath cycles still be alright?
In the style I practise (Iwama), the exhaling (w/kiai) is continuous, one cycle but modulated, all allong the cutting motions. Exceptions are in the basic levels of training, where every cutting motion has it's own breathing cycle.
