Ashihara Karate - Kihon No Kata Sono San, and Jissen No katas

Wado Ryu - Naifanchi (Tekki Shodan), Kuchanku(Kanku Dai) and Bassai (Dai) as my Poll pointed out those 3 and I have adopted them as my favourites

Tang Soo Do - Chil Sung Katas 1-3 (although can't remember then as no longer Practice them - Silly boy)

Tekki Shodan and Nidan. The more I practice them the more I learn that's why I love them so much.

My favourite kata is Passai (old Tomari no Passai version). I very like this kata because of bunkai. Bunkai of Passai kata is very effective in real confrotation. In bunkai we have all basic defensive movements for self defence.

It's hard to choose a favorite since I visit them all on a nearly daily basis but if pressed I'd say sepai, kururunfa, and superimpei.

Been training Tekki Shodan (Kyokushin) like mad and Pinan Sono Yon (Oyama style).

Don't know why, I'm a goju-ryu practitioner but I keep doing KK katas. Guess something hit me too hard on the head.
