Kenjutsu Kashima Shinryū by MarcBachraty
From ancient times the following three kakegoe are mostly used: ‘YA’, ‘EI’ and ‘TOH’.
‘YA’ shows that your own posture is set completely. It is also used in an encounter [deai] to break the energy of the opponent, by pre-empting him with a shout.
‘EI’ shows the firm decision to attack and is used at appropriate points within the movement.
‘TOH’ is the shout with which one comes to a standstill. It is used when [receiving and suppressing] [uketomeru] or when cutting down [kiri-otosu].
