    What is your battle cry? Do you shout on your snap kick, kiai your reverse punches or are you the strong silent type? Post any interesting martial arts shouts you use or have heard. Below are some examples and what I call them:

    The traditionalist: kiai!
    The Bruce Lee: Ooooooh... whuppa!
    The karateka: Hai-eee-ya!
    The referee: Let's get it on!
    The cocky git: Bring it on, punk!
    The veteran: Isi! Ooooh, my back.



    Now doesn't that make you feel better?

    My instructor advocates what evry feels natural. So he makes a various sounds and will some time even yell out words like BAM!!, POW!! or HUP!!! He'll even make a rolling throat clearig sound like he is about to hock a lougey.

    Most of the time he makes this whoosing sound that sounds a lot like the whoosing you here in kung-fu movies. He swears he is not doing on purpose, and knows everyone knows that the whoosh is coming from his mouth and not his arms and legs whipping through the air but explains that is just what comes out when he is moving.

    The tremondous downside to this is most students mimic his kiais, instead of doing what he really does and just be natural. So if you come into my school or any given night, there will be at least one or to people, going "Whoosh, Whoosh, Pow!" It's really embarassing sometimes.

    Punisher,

    I do that too. Not really loud or anything .. it's just how it sounds when you exhale with force. It's natural.

    Other than that I am quiet, why warn the guy? I can do a Goldburg demonic looking scream but I have never been that pissed at anyone.

    I make a sound kinda like "neya", but softly. . .I

    Sifu Emin - Did you see that?
    Me - (gasping) No, but I can't breathe yet.

    "Punisher,

    Yeah, I know it's natural when my instructor does it, I just have a problem with anyone else thinking that is how they should sound and mimicing it instead of whatever comes natural to them. Just another example of people looking for how, instead of examining why.
