Zach,

That makes more sense to me. The techniques that seem to work best are the basics and can be found in most beginner kata, IMO. Perhaps its personal preference, but I want nothing more from my training to be a master at the basics. To me a simple system means simple techniques. That translates into simpler training. When this occurs, it allows the student more time with each technique, as well as more time for determining application and working on other key aspects like footwork, for example.
