Koichi Tohei Sensei talks about breathing naturally while throwing. Getting attached to the idea that your stronger on exhaling or inhaling is a weakness that can be exploited in his view.
I both agree and disagree with this one. I especially feel that you can train yourself to be strong in different ways on either the out or the in breath.

I also like how you tied kokyu to the timing of the breath, not the breath itself.
