I like bassa-dai because it is a strong kata.

Bassai Dai is sweet, but I am not a Brown belt yet so my favorite kata that I can run is Empi-Sho and I also run Anaku as well.

My open form is definately my favorite. Took me years to complete. (evolved over the years into what it is now) It is extremely difficult to perform and takes every ounce of energy to finish but the end result wins...

That sounds cool Withers M.A.A. maybe if we meet at some convention somewhere down the road you could show us all you kata.

The coolest form I've seen is the first KSW sword hyung.

However, I'll admit that even the white belt form (Ki Cho Hyung) looked amazing when performed by a master with 20+ years training in the art.

fav is probably seinchin.
but i also favor seipai for its strength.
i have yet to see higher gojuryu katas like suparanpei, kururunfa or seisan (and others i've never heard of, if there is any)

of course, i can't do any of these.. YET!!!

Bassi dai and Kanku Sho are 2 of my favs. I would love to learn Nijushiho.

My favourite is Sochin as I like the gradual winding-up before the release of energy. I find it unstresses me when I'm annoyed too!

Unfortunately this doesn't mean I'm any good at it at all - that fudo stance is tough! My knees don't like it much either.

Quite like Heians Yon- and Go-Dan too but CAN'T ABIDE Tekki Sho-Dan. Hate it hate it hate it.

Seinchin I find is one of my Katas. That and Matsuma Rohai are Katas I enjoy just because of their balance of hard and soft.
