I read once in Kung Fu and Qigong magazine (yes, I shamefully admit I've read that rag) that the White Eyebrow Kung Fu guys are trained to breathe IN when striking instead of out like every other art. Their thinking is that it makes your chest and abs push out, so it adds to the forward motion of the strike. IMHO I think that it's contradictory to good kinesthetics. I mean, walking and running and everythin else has you breathe OUT when exerting. Like weightlifting. I would also think it would be real hard to change your habits if you switched from another art to that one... or vice versa. Any WEKF guys here care to comment? I have some other ?'s about the art, too. Like the claim that it's one of the few KF arts that doesn't need modifications to techniques to work in real combat.
As far as Kiai, there was another thread not too long ago here about how the Japanese arts had many different applications for it. Including talking somebody out of a fight, kinda like the Voice in Dune. I know in Budo Taijutsu right now I've been seeing some wierd uses of it.

3. Make each scream last for at least five seconds even if the move is done partway through the first second. If a move is supposed to be done slowly, do it twice as slow as usual & scream throughout the entire move.
LOL! reminds me of open weapons comps on ESPN.
Also, Your sig made me laugh. like, a lot.

Maybe I've been completely Bullshidokai by Karate.But i've been led to believe that the Kiai can actually help release strenght into your punches.But I've never seen kiai's being by anything other than forms.
I have seen people kiai in the end of a tournament fight when their running low on gas.They do that to find that little bit of stamina and strenght that's deep down somewhere.This is not some magical power.
Its people's "will" to survive and win that kicks in.Not invisible magic points in inanimate objects.

CLEARLY THE MITI ART OF SAVATE emphaaizes most on kiai in the use of kicks
the reason for that bing the way they chamber the kicks, that multiplies the power of the kicks. savate was designed in french where it is illegal to punch people but legal to kick, so savate was invented to fight legally.

A Kung Fu-er friend of mine (not a White Eyebrow guy) said he was taught that as well; said the rationale was that it would help you keep from getting winded from throwing punches because you were always sucking more air in.
