Good stuff, Sanchin...thank you!
Calling yourself "Master" implies that you have slaves.

I know Taikyoku 1-3, Heian, (Pinan) 1-5, and Tekki Shodan, (Naihanchi) the one I know best is obviously Taikyoku Shodan since it was the first one I learned, my favorite though is Tekki Shodan because the Tekki series is unique to me since they are the only katas that go side to side.

Under Ryukyu Kempo I have learnt
Taikyouku 1,2,3 Pinan 1,2,3,4,5 & Naihanchi.
Now under Koryu Uchinadi, I am currnetly learning Chokyu.
I enjoy practicing Naihanchi.
However I enjoy practicing katas in general, somedays it can be a meditation in motion and others it can be the battle of a lifetime.

There is a slight difference between what I know, what I’m somewhat good at,, and what I’ve studied.

I teach at the kyu level:
Fuygata Sho (Matsubayshi Ryu)
Annaku (Shorin Ryu Honda Katsu)
Seisan (Isshinryu)
Saifa (Goju Ryu)
Seiunchin (Isshinryu)
Naifanchi (Isshinryu)
Wansu (Isshinryu)
Chinto (Isshinryu)
Lung Le Kuen (Pai Lum)
Kusanku (Isshinryu)
Nijushiho (Sutrisno Shotokan)
SunNuSu (Isshinryu)
Sanchin (Isshinryu)
Kobudo – Bando Short Stick

At the dan level, the curricula is individualized, but it roughly covers over the next 15 or so years:

Kobudo: Bando Short Stick
Bando Staff the Horsemans Form
Bo (Isshinryu) – Tokomeni No Kon, Urashie No Bo, Shi Shi No Kon No Dai
Sai (Isshinryu) – Kusanku Sai, Chantan Yara No Sai
Tonfa - my study on Wansu NO Tonfa, & theIsshinryu variant form ‘Chia Fa’
Kama – Chosen No Kama Sho, Chosen No Kama Dai
Tanto Drills

Kata: Goju Seipai
Shotokan Bassai Dai, Gojushiho
Uechi Sanchin, Seisan
Matsumura No Patsai
Rohai (Tomari)
a private version of Hakutsuru
Matzan Tildur – tjimande
Sip Sau Jing – Tai Tong Long
Dune De Kuen – Sil Lum
Pai Lum Kuen – Pai Lum
Hon Kuen – Faan Tzi Ying Jow Pai

I am conversant with the entire Miyagi Goju curricula of kata.
I am conversant with the most of the Shotokan curricula of kata.
And a bit more.

In addition I practice and teach Yang Long Fist 108, Yang Straight Sword and I practice the Wu Gau Gee 108 form too.

Naihanchi Shodan, Naihanchi Nidan, Naihanchi Sandan

Another one I'll say if I get the "okay" to make it public (No, it's not some super secret society thing...)

All in all, too many.

Is your Rokkishu similar to the Goju-ryu Tensho?

I'd be interested to know more about the form. It was supposedly created by Kyoda Juhatsu (founder of Tou'on Ryu). If you can find where Kyoshi Perry learned it, that would be quite interesting, as Tou'on Ryu is not a common style at all.

There may be another form with the same name, but I'd still like to check it out.

I practice Shotokan Karate and I know:
Heian Serie
Tekki Shodan/Naihanchi/Naifanchi
Bassai Dai
Wan Kan

Anyway the one I like the most is Tekki Shodan, because of its difficulty to execute.
It is a short kata, but in each kyodo you have to put all the kime. A Shotokan master once said that he recognize a karate fighter by his Tekki. And that a true Karate fighter
must practice Tekki at least ten thousand times to be a good karateka.
