Title: Shouts in martial arts
Post by: Webmaster on April 05, 2017, 12:15:31 pm
Debate: In your opinion, what is the use of shouts in martial arts? Do you use them in the practice of your martial art and why ?

Shouts in martial arts are called Kiai (Japanese), Chi-yi or Qi-i or Fa-sheng (in China), Het (Vietnamese) or Kihap (Korean).

What is it "Chi yi"? I don't understand.

The shout is often used in the external chinese martial arts, the internal art like tai chi don't use the shout. According to my opinion, the shout can encourage himself and make the other fear. Bruce Lee always shout with every attack, movement, i think it like sth. help to explore the strength.

When I was a practitioner of Tae Kwon Do, we were using shouts a lot. I remember, that greatly helped me to increase power and explosivity of kicks. Also I had the feeling of better moves when shouting. So I think that shouts are really useful in martial arts.
