Does anyone practice holding their breath for long periods of time? I've done a little freediving, during which time I practised holding my breath, and my time up to over three minutes. I was wondering if it has other benefits or if it's practised in any systems?

I'm not sure on what benefit it could offer - other than expanding your threshold. I wouldn't imagine it would be wise in a fight or during training...

To answer your question though, no we don't work on this in my Goju-Ryu class.

Here's a study saying it causes a significant increase in growth hormone and cortisol, which could enhance physical performance.
