Okay, I've been through this kind of topic two other times, but I've another way to put it . . .

In training, how many of you practice the "beginner's" kata, such as Pinan?

For those that do, a question: What benefits do you feel this type of set gives you as a martial artist?

For those that don't: Why?

I've been through styles which teach kata similar to the Pinan and Passai, and am currently in Isshinry, which teaches in a fashion that's a lot easier for me.
