I'll take seiyunchin. I've done more studying on this kata than my others. It also has loads of applications in it.

Matsubayashi Wankan: Tai Sabaki(dodging, evasion, body shifting), powerful punching combinations, distancing, low kicks, knee strikes, tuite(trapping/joint locking, bone breaking), vital point striking, covering from a distance and controling when in close. It is more of a "sprawl and brawl" kata. It teaches defense against a takedown, fighting in the clinch, and how to control distance and dominate a fight.

The First Rule of Karate is Cheat! Play the game to Win!

So I pick the following One, and the order does not imply greater merit.

1. Isshinryu Sanchin
2. Isshinryu Seisan
3. Isshinryu Chinto
4. Isshinryu SunNuSu
5. Tomari Roahi
6. Ueichi Sanchin
7. Goju Seipai
8. Bando Short Stick

BTW this is just the short list of my ONE. The Full List is Much Longer, but any of these could be a lifetime study in their own right.

If I only had ONE kata ? It really could be ANY one kata for me, im a big fan of Sanchin .. all versions, Naihanchi Shodan is a awesome kata, I very much like Okinawan Kenpo Seisan I think this is Tomari Seisan im not sure, its the one shigeru nakumura practiced/taught. In the end I would probaly pick sanchin over any other kata.

What about only ONE technique found in any kata, which technique would that be ?

Count me in with Seienchin too. Lots of application and lots to learn. A difficult kata to make look good in my opinion.

I pick Seiunchin as well, its the one I have to do for my Shodan. It is full of yatsukos and I find it just keeps getting better and I'm finding more in it every time I do it.

Our founder says it embodies much of the system and develops our power.

It is one of the foundations together with Taiyoku Shodan, Naihanchin, Sanchin and Tensho.
