Right now, I'm learning Seisan and Shi-ho-hai.

I've also studied the first three taikyoku, even though they aren't really chito-ryu kata. My sensei doesn't do the traditional chito-ryu lower Kyu kata.

I know Goju Ryu has a lot of katas in common with Chito Ryu...

Do you know more of them?

I love how, Chito Ryu, Shito Ryu, Shito Kai, Shukokai and Uechi Ryu have such similar katas, its wonderful haha.

And


yes girls do look better at the Bassai Dai Kata. I taught a girl this and I swear she looks better at it than I do...

I think WKF has some Katas to be known by all styles for high level dans. I'm not sure about it.

Im sure they also have electives as well. I know for Kajukenpo they make you learn 1-2 new katas from an outside style as an elective for every dan testing.

Wow... I didn't know that...

Well, as far as my experience goes (which it isn't that much) katas shitei are the ones for competition, and there is only a set of katas "allowed" by the WKF to be perfomed in competitions.
