    It's even more satisfying if you say it in a pirate accent.

    Go on. Try it. You'll thank me :p.

    Thats pretty much how it got explained to me when I first began training Wado Ryu. I remember being very self conscious about it at the beginning.

    As the years have gone on and my training has progressed it feels almost a natural thing when putting in maximum effort into a punching technique. Kicks not so much.

    Theres different types of Kiai. On a thrusting movement i.e. Yoko Geri I have always been taught it as a longer more prenounced shout from the diaphram as apposed to a snapping attack which uses a very short burst.

    It is not intended as a intimidation tactic but used to contract the body at the moment of impact to add to the technique. At least to my understanding and what I have been taught.

    In addition to the points made about the benefits of breathing and mental attitude: A sudden, unexpected noise can confuse/startle you opponent for a moment - best when used infrequently

    It's quite easy to add kiai onto any technique (it's not really a physical movement) and it can be helpful to cover up a change

    The kind of noises help, but the idea is to use noise, amongst other things to eat into your opponent's brain "processing power" at a critical moment

    Hope this makes sense
