1st) Not to be sexist but girls screaming and kicking at each other is hott
2) Why wouldnt you kihap in a sparring match. First of all, it gives you power. Second, it does distract you opponent (sometimes).
"If it doesn't give you more power, then it will put the fear of God into you opponent" - Master Robert Markus
My instructor also told me when he was younger, he was in a sparring match and he was tied up 2 to 2 and peson with 3 points wins. He said as soon as the ref said si jak, he charged at his oppenent screaming at the top of his lungs, making his opponent run out of the ring and in doing so won the match.
Thats what my instructor told me. Now people yelling at me in tournaments doesnt have an effect on me. I do it to others and sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt. Most of my teamates are ex military and are used to being screamed at so it doesnt have any effect on them but with a neverous competator, it should have some effect.
