Re kiai: I went & watched a class with a friend last night, & one of their seniors had a kiai for every occasion. "he", "har", "ho", "so", & the list went on. Quite bizarre to my mind. !
He would alternate them with each repetition of a technique:
"he", "har", "he"
"har", "he", "har"

Found it a bit puzzling...
Maybe he was just enjoying himself.

Har de Har
Ho Ho Ho
He He
