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).

Probably the most used. But what I've learned in Shou Shu, Muay Thai lacks aggressive punch defense to the head.

It's surely the default. Most effective, dunno.

What Is Bujinkan Ninjutsu /  Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu ?

Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu is a traditional Japanese martial art that teaches effective ways of self-protection using timing, distancing, and angling. Multiple attacks, weaponry, striking, grappling, choking, leaping, rolling, and throws are all disciplines incorporated into the training of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. The training is non–competitive, allowing the student to focus on developing the mind and body through a whole–body movement martial art, not speed and/or muscle training.

The Bujinkan (translated as "warrior spirit hall") is the platform Masaaki Hatsumi, Soke (literally "head of the family", but commonly called "Grandmaster"), teaches Budo Taijutsu from. Hatsumi Sensei created the Bujinkan after his teacher, the late Takamatsu Sensei, died in 1972. Takamatsu Sensei was the Soke of nine ryu, or lineages, of which he taught to Hatsumi Sensei over the course of 15 years. The nine ryu are:

    Togakure Ryu Ninpo Taijutsu – Hidden Door School
    Gyokko Ryu Koshijutsu – Jewel Tiger School
    Kukishinden Happo Hikenjutsu – Nine Demon Gods School
    Koto Ryu Koppojutsu – Tiger Knocking Down School
    Shinden Fudo Ryu Dakentaijutsu – Immovable Heart School
    (Hon Tai) Takagi Yoshin Ryu Jutaijutsu – High Tree, Raised Heart School
    Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu – Truth, Loyalty & Justice School
    Gyokushin Ryu Ninjutsu – Jeweled Heart School
    Kumogakure Ryu Ninpo – Hiding in the Clouds School

It is the culmination of these nine ryu that Hatsumi Sensei uses as the basis for the Bujinkan. Three of the nine ryu are of ninjutsu decent (Togakure Ryu, Kumogakure Ryu & Gyokushin Ryu), making the history of the Bujinkan slightly more difficult to understand without proper historical interpretation by an authentic teacher.

The physical level of training in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu includes:

Junan Taiso
    Body flexibility and conditioning
    Strikes, kicks and blocks
    Grappling, throwing and limb control
    Rolls, leaps and evasions

Students are also introduced to the application of traditional weapons in self-defense when they have demonstrated the appropriate level of self–control and coordination.

    long, medium and short stick and staff techniques
    Sword techniques
    Knife techniques
    Short chain techniques
    Halbard techniques
    Spear techniques
    Cord and rope restraining methods

These weapons are replaced with wooden or rope replicas for safety.

Students are also taught to understand the principles of self-defense that together forms the very essence of weapon use. This enables Bujinkan practitioners to instantly adapt any object of any description as an aid in self-protection.

Martial Arts / Re: Is aikido suitable for women ?
« Last post by sophisticus on March 23, 2017, 03:37:11 pm »
As i know, the principle of aikido is like Tai Chi, don't use the strength to conquer the opposite, there is also a principle to use the soft to conquer the hard, the heavy weight person is not an advantage, this point may be very useful for the woman. Because i'm a woman martial art practitioner, i'm always very care about the winning with strength.

Another question is, could i choose 2 different martial arts to practice? This question bothered me for a long time, actually i'm a Tai Chi practitioner but i'm also very interested in budo, i've no attention to give up Tai Chi, hope some one can give help.

At last, a gift of photo to webmaster about this topic.

You gotta agree with Mushashi, you become predictable repeating your attacks and that can be very dangerous especially back then.
