Kama-e and Ma-ai: Positions and Spacing
Pages 4

Ki-ai should be used sparingly. It is most effective when used in the following three situations: (a) in the initial moment when one comes face-to-face with an opponent, (b) when attacked by the opponent, and (c) at the time of attacking a specific target. Its purpose is to eliminate fear, doubt and hesitation - matters which will be subsequently elaborated - and to implement one's synergistic energy.
