What do I actually know?

Taikyoku Shodan and Sandan

Heian I-V

Tekki I-III

Bassai Dai and Sho




Kanku Dai and Sho




Gojushoho Sho





tried learning Gojushoho Dai, Gankaku and Sochin but I don't know my other kata well enough yet, and they seemed awkward.

too many katas!

Starting to learn Seisan

We have some basic technique katas/forms but these are the traditional katas that I know.

I would also say that my favourite kata and the one that I would consider "my" kata is also seiunchin. It's a fantastic kata. I also really like sanseru but since I only learnt that in the last 12 months I'm yet to have the same understanding of it as I do (so far that is) of seiunchin - still heaps more I can get out of that kata!

if feel all stupid because i've forgotten the katas that i learnt years ago (wasn't that many though) and now i can only perform pinan nidan which i've learnt over the last two weeks and i'm really trying to 'know' it. its a great kata though. gotta (re)start somewhere i suppose.
Go seek the advise of a qualified instructor.

My favorite Kata's at the moment are Kenshu and Gojushiho ... I've been doing a lot of research on the previous because... Well damn. Its just cool.

Kenshu is a Shito-Ryu traditional Kata, I'm not sure any other groups practice it. I was lucky enough to learn it and I thank my star's for my instruction. I am not going to list my Kata here because basically its the same list as any other Traditional Karateka's...
While everything changes, nothing is truly lost.
