    It makes you breath out when you do a strike. Kind of like a boxer making that "ssss" sound when s/he punches. At least that's what I was always told.

    "Whatsamatta, you some kind of gyrl or something?
    Make punch, driver punch!
    Not just arm, whole body!
    Look in eye!
    Make Kiai!
    Heeya! Heeya!
    Give you power, whole body."

    It helps people breathe and is sort of used to intimidate your opponent.

    It's to camoflage the fart noise you make when you tighten your stomach in the punch.

    I have a sneaking suspicion my sensei makes us kiai so he knows we're doing something when he goes off to chat with his mate.

    Well, it's that or what Sirc said.

    So that when you do Open Forms, the judges will give you a good score. Make sure to:
    1. Make it less of a kiai and more of a scream. Otherwise, you might not be heard over the music.
    2. Scream on every third move. At least.
    3. Make each scream last for at least five seconds even if the move is done partway through the first second. If a move is supposed to be done slowly, do it twice as slow as usual & scream throughout the entire move.
