Mark,

I know that some Ryuha have silent kiai and that in some iai styles silent kiai is encouraged when there is no audible kiai.

I don't know much about Ueshiba's kiai but coud see how kiai and kotodama could have been a power building/breathing/spiritual practice.
Hi Jeremy,

It would be interesting how those Ryuha differentiate (if they do) between the silent and voiced kiai.

But, yeah, I can see how they could be power building/breathing/spiritual.

Thanks,
Mark
