Practice so that these shouts are the result of kiai and not just empty grunts. Aiki The other side of kiai is ‘aiki’. When an opponent is helpless against your techniques you will feel kiai. The opponent, realising the futility of his actions, will feel aiki. Aiki can be described as ‘winning without striking a blow’ or ‘dominating spirit’.

Be sure that you have fully digested the information contained in this chapter before moving on. Most karateka do not engage in realistic training and therefore do not see the errors in their interpretation of the katas.

Neither of these 55 Bunkai-Jutsu situations is likely in a live fight. In reality, it is very difficult to block and counter an opponent’s punches at close range. The idea of blocking and countering is one that many modern martial artists are reluctant to give up. If you have any doubts, I’d suggest that you get a partner, put on a pair of 16oz boxing gloves and go for it! Have a go at blocking and countering and I guarantee you will get trounced. From this we can conclude that the katas are unlikely to contain much blocking.
