Keywords: Go term

Chinese: -
Japanese: 利かされ, 効かされ (kikasare)
Korean: -

Kikasare is a Japanese go term which means the converse, that is to say the passive form, of kikashi.

BillSpight: Literally, it means made ineffective. I like to say, "got pushed around".

Jared: So this term is probably also used as the opposite of kiai?

Bob McGuigan: I wouldn't say it is the opposite of kiai. Kikasare describes something that happened whereas kiai is an attribute. A player ends up being pushed around (kikasare) due to a lack of fighting spirit (kiai).

Pros go to great lengths to avoid kikasare.
