Key Sound Element

Part 17 of the Advanced Kyusho Sound Projection Series

Another key element with the sounds is why these two similar sounding words create an exact opposite effect in the opponent.

So far you have the key sound and the she sound that we've been working on. We found out that the "Keee" sound makes the body expansive and very easy to lift or to push someone off (from a mounted position). So why is the "Keee" different from the "Sheee" as the "Sheee" does the exact opposite to the opponent.

When you say "Keee" or "Sheee" in the whisper you hold the eee the same way and duration. So what is the difference... it's the opening sound that attacks your opponents eardrum. As an example the K is a harder, sharper sound with the E lingering to continue the message into the brain longer for deeper and longer effect. So it is with the S in the "Sheee" sound, the S affects the nerve system, the E makes that deeper and longer.

This is because you vibrated the inner ear in a particular way and you keep that vibration going by that long drawn out e sound. With the "Sheee" it's a sh, which is a more calming effect and it's an it's an international thing not only an international but throughout history. All people throughout history and around the world have used the shh to calm others down, whether it be a child or someone panicking or upset.

So what this experiment is help yuunderstand this phenomenon more internally than just being familiar with it. Starting with the hard K sound, without the sustained E and feel as well as get feedback from the partner on the affect. Then repeat it with the sustained E sound and measure again the feel, the results and the recievers feedback. And as instructed in the prior lessons, do not grab hard and say it just on initial contact. So as this demonstration unfolds, the K only and you can see temporarily he goes up but then the body weight stifles the technique. When I do this once again using the K with the prolonged E, Joe goes up and over effortlessly. It's a very strange sensation for the thrower as the body weight feels almost non existent.

Asking Joe, what did you feel on the three differences replied: "Easily I could have grounded myself more with the first one, the next one you had I kind of just felt lighter and had like no control over my body. I couldn't ground myself, I couldn't do anything".

So we see that it is not these the E sound that makes this work, the E sound just carries the message longer so you have a longer time frame and accomplish what you were trying to accomplish. I also suggest that you try this with all the prior "Key" lessons in this series, like pushing the opponent up off the mount position, or you could do the push off the ground, whichever exercise we did before that you have success with let's try it again but just with the K sound and see how it works, then add the prolonged E and measure the results.

Moving on to the "Sheee" sound with a past lesson, combining it with a Kotegaesh Tuite, go through it three times. Once without any sound, then with the S sound and then again with the prolonged E ("Sheee").

Always gain feedback from your partner as it will help codify this into your technique. Asking Anthony what was the difference between the three of them he stated "The first one I can kind of control, how I felt the second one (the S alone), I regained my balance right away so I didn't even fall and that one (prolonged E sound), I just had no control over how I felt or where".

So try these two exercises or techniques (as well as all the prior lessons) with just the opening sound, then repeat it with a prolonged E that keeps that message going deeper. Remember it is better to experience rather than just seeing it.
