The Martial Art Spirit Yell or "Ki-Ah" as it is sometimes called is a very well known part of the martial arts world. People have always used the sounds as the butt of jokes. Even Bruce Lee make fun of it in some of his movies like "Way of the Dragon." But is there more too it?
When I was growing up in the martial arts I asked my Grand Master instructor why we made the sound. He told me to be quiet and focus on it coming from my belly and not my throat. Questions were not encouraged in those days. As time went by I began to see how it improved focus and as a result power. But at that point I had no idea as to the power of the Ki-Ah or sound on the human body.
It is well beyond a blog post to explain sound. Well at least and keep the post under 10,000 or more words. But lets just say depending on the frequency and amplitude it can have a very detrimental effect on the body, the energy in the body, emotions and the organs. And you have seen this happen in regular life too! But the odds are you did not notice.
Below is a short video I did better than 10 years ago hitting my son with sound. He was off work for 3 days after. That is fact. He never let me do it again. Have a watch.
We have all experienced the affect of sound in real life. Whether it be a song that makes you angry because of the beat, or one that brings back a flood of memories. For the next little while I am going to give you a chance to discover more about how sound can be used very effectively in self defense.
