Stas,

My current understanding is that you breathe between kiai. How many repetitions of the kiai you can do between breaths is up to you to explore. At the moment I seem to average about three repetitions before I need to inhale.

Ho - Eeee-Aaaay

Ho - Eeee-Aaaay

Ho - Eeee-Aaaay

Inhale

Ho - Eeee-Aaaay

Ho - Eeee-Aaaay

Ho - Eeee-Aaaay

Inhale

This is inhaling only enough to fill my abdomen and not my chest... if you know what I mean.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Jim
