Kata I know...

I know the movements/embu for a lot of kata. Between standard Isshin-ryu, Shorin-ryu, Goju-ryu and the kata one of my teachers made up, I'd guess around 40 or 50, actually. I don't feel like listing them.

I'd say I might know 1 of them really - but I think that would be a stretch. I guess if I had to choose one that I "know," it would probably be Saifa at this point - but like I said, that would be a stretch. I know some bunkai for all of them, but can't do all the bunkai reliably - hence I don't know most of the kata I know.

I know Heian series, Tekki Shodan and Nidan, Bassai Dai and Sho, and Chinte. I believe that Tekki Shodan is my best kata. I am a better with my hands then my feet so itís a perfect kata for me.

Empi(also spelled enpi), or "Flight of the swallow", is also widely recognized as "wansu". That's a fun kata.

I enjoy a wide variety of kata from many many different arts. However, I NEVER say that I know them, even though I can perform many of them backwards or on the opposite side. I always say "I've studied that kata", instead of saying I "know" it.

I agree with your point, boomer. It's semantics that mostly goes without saying in person- but maybe needs mention in text. In this case I assume: 'know' = 'can perform the movements in order to further study the kata'.

That's exactly what I meant by 'know' Kintama,some people need to be quite literal.

Boomer = "some people".
Sorry, I just don't like the somantics used. It's only my personal preferance (which I tend to force down other people's throats). In this world of people making shodan in a year and opening their own school within three, bestowing themselves titles and such, I try to be as real (and humble) as possible. So the terminology used is important to me. "Yeah, I know that kata" is thrown around far to often, in my opinion.
