Kiai Jutsu: The Shout Used As A Weapon -

By Christopher Caile A kiai is a loud shout. It is that essential element used by the heroes and villains of martial arts movies to accent their action, something that testifies that they are not mere boxers or wrestlers but trained experts in an Asian discipline such as karate or kung fu. But unfortunately what we hear no longer bears much combat significance. The true art of the shout, or kiai jutsu in Japanese, can be an effective tool of self-defense capable of having physical effects on an adversary.
