    Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom

    Pride is nothing without honour & honour is respect.

      I think Karate fighters say kiai too, don't they?

      I'm just wondering why they make their breathing audible? Does this not use more energy then necessary. They could simply could be exhaling in silence.

      I'm curious of the actually benefits of exhaling on a strike. I heard it makes you actually hit harder. Is this a myth or true?
      Whenever i train I'd do the sound by myself without knowing.
