    The"kia" and attacking

    Do you feel it is true that one of the reasons you yell or expel air (From your mouth Ronin) when attacking is because it allows the body to take a blow better... solidifies the body so even if your attack misses or you are hit while coming in you can absorb the damage better?

    First its "kiai".
    Second, ALL systems of combat advocate expelling air, in one way or another, at the moment of attack, its just good logic for many reasons.
    Just as you expell air when you do any physically demanding endevour ( or should), wither it be lifting a weight, throwing a punch or throwing a body.

        Ronin with your Chen Tai Chi background isn't there a slightly different way they expel the air to get the "fajing" effect....I could be wrong, but I don't think it is done exactly like you would think....

          kiaiing when taking hits, what u said is true. but kiaiing to do soemthing, esp in wrestling, is to activate sympathetic (adrenaline-on) system.

            In Taiji, you do "reverse breathing" to expell the air as you strike or apply fajing.
            That type of breathing is what is done when you are gonna lift something heavy for example.
            You expell are and your "gut" expands rather than contracting.
            Weight lifters breath that way too and you will notice that, when you are gonna hit ot throw someone, you will "automatically" breath that way too.

              All I know is that I was hit while breathing in once and I didn't like it.

                The secret is to NOT breath at all.
                Breathing is for wimps.
                Breathing is over rated anyways.
