    Bat-girl costume?!?@#!?! :emo:

    And holy crap, I saw a picture of the blue-haired kid that I really wanted to kick right in the pee-pee. It was here somewhere. Dang-it!

    Anyway, I remember how they wanted us to scream sometimes in my old karate school. They said how it helped you release your energy and put more power into your hits and all that. Does that work at all though? My _ing _un class philosophy is completely opposite that: that screaming tenses you up and makes you easier to beat the **** out of. Then again, I'm sure that if I were dressed in a bat-girl costume I wouldn't have to worry about the screaming harming my ability to fight.

    Supposedly the scream/ KI was used when you delivered the "death" blow in a fight to help you release all of your power. Now it's used to say "look how bad I am".
    I used to wear those soft ear plugs and take off points for unnecessary screams/KI's. I guess thats why I never get asked to judge anymore when I show up at tournament. :toothy10:

    What they do in XMA is screaming, not kiai. Kiai is a short forceful exhalation at the moment of impact that usually sounds like a deep "huh."

    They are just screaming from the throat. "YEAAHAHAHHHHHHHHHHHHAIIAIIHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Yes. There is no such thing as a 30 second long kiai. There are plenty of those. I also like the idiots that do it for damned near every move they do.

    I've seen a few real fights where screaming seemed to be very effective. You need to scream the right things however.

    For example, screaming thing like "STOP RESISTING ARREST!" or "ARE YOU INTERFERING WITH AN OFFICER IN THE PERFORMANCE OF HIS DUTIES?", often results in a decisive ass-kicking.

    My judo sensi says to yell when you fall while throwing in competition. He said tipically the guy who makes noise is the one they will give the point to if they arn't sure who threw who. But he said never yell while being throw, it only makes your partner look better. So its kinda a contradiction.
