So what is your favourite kata?

Mine personally is a real toss up between Seiyunshin (goju version), Annanku and Gankaku. Although so many have places in my heart, Gojoshiho-sho, Unsu, Kanku-sho and several others. If I was forced to pick those are my big three.

Seiyunshin has been the kata that I have taken to competition for years as a junior and I'm sure I will continue to use it now I am a senior.

But what about everyone else?

I've gotten to the point where I don't have a favorite. Used to mainly do Chinto in competition. Lately it's been Kusanku, but in private moments I've been coming up with bunkai from Seuchin.

The Isshinryu version (by way of Kyan [Shorinryu]). Don't know about others, except that I know Shotokan breaks it down into Kanku Sho & Kanku Dai.

I'd have to say I like my whole curriculum..can't say I like doing one Kata over the other.
