The ki-hap (yell) has many purposes, and each use depends on what situation the student faces. One of the very important purposes is that it tightens the muscle in the body. This conditions them as well as prepares them for an attack. The following is a brief list of situations and next to each is what the ki-hap (yell) does for you.


Situation What ki-hap does for you
Form ——————- Confidence, focus, adrenal rush
Sparring —————- Confidence, confuses partner, adrenal rush

As you can see, the importance of the ki-hap (yell) differs with each situation.
