Favorite as in most fun or best training. Nihanchi isn't that the one that Funakoshi practiced for his first five years. He started your style why not follow his example?




It was 9 years actually!!!

As for me my favourite tends to be the one that I've recently discovered a new application from.
Kanku dai I like, (good fighting kata) Empi and Hangetsu, also.
Unsu is probably the most flashy what with that jump type somersaulty, thing.

What's up? Don't you use technical expressions like this where you train?
