What do you yell when you kia?

Most people, when first starting karate, yell the word 'kia'. After getting used to the idea of a kia some people yell 'das' while others yell a variation of sounds. Essentially, you can yell any one or two syllable 'word' with certain exceptions of course. It's not acceptable to yell things like 'die' or 'kill' etc - and a reminder, swearing is not permitted in the dojo!
