Re: Kiai -- Precision & Abandon

I have mostly trained in places that don't kiai much. Some yrs ago I was visiting a (friendly) dojo and we were asked to kiai but non-specific - anything that made sense to us - so as I didn't know anything traditional or proper to do, as a good ex-NewYorker I extended my arm fully and let out a full throated TAXI!!!! - brought down the house :-)
