Goddamn I love the butt scoot. Goddamn.
It's even more satisfying if you say it in a pirate accent.
Go on. Try it. You'll thank me .
You really should. Lol.
I'm having fun with a Scottish accent. Bewt scewt.
I use one in foreplay. Never had a second date though
Thats pretty much how it got explained to me when I first began training Wado Ryu. I remember being very self conscious about it at the beginning.
As the years have gone on and my training has progressed it feels almost a natural thing when putting in maximum effort into a punching technique. Kicks not so much.
When I say it like that I sound like a liverpool scouser!
Shouting kiai or butt scooting?!
Damn I just You Tube'd the Butt Scoot, think Im going to get sacked now...
Theres different types of Kiai. On a thrusting movement i.e. Yoko Geri I have always been taught it as a longer more prenounced shout from the diaphram as apposed to a snapping attack which uses a very short burst.
It is not intended as a intimidation tactic but used to contract the body at the moment of impact to add to the technique. At least to my understanding and what I have been taught.
In addition to the points made about the benefits of breathing and mental attitude: A sudden, unexpected noise can confuse/startle you opponent for a moment - best when used infrequently
It's quite easy to add kiai onto any technique (it's not really a physical movement) and it can be helpful to cover up a change
The kind of noises help, but the idea is to use noise, amongst other things to eat into your opponent's brain "processing power" at a critical moment
Hope this makes sense
Do I have to pick just one?
