If the vocalizations that some folks make when doing the rowing exercise (at my dojo we often do "EE - HO" and "EE - SA") can properly be termed a kiai, then this mean that a kiai is more generally a use of the vocal chords to manifest a particular type of reality from the breath.
wondering if i did this all wrong, because i have been using "HI - HO, HI HO. OFF TO WORK WE GO" and the other "PIZ - ZA, PIZ ZA. MEAT LOVER"

"budo is putting on cold, wet, sweat stained gi with a smile and a snarl" - your truly
