    My favourites at the moment:
    - Chi-i
    - Wankan
    - Wangshu
    - Kihon san
    - Naifanchi

    If I were only allowed 5 to practice, my choice at the moment would be:
    - Kihon ni: contains all basic techniques and is quite hard;
    - Kihon san: contains difficult movement and is quite dynamic;
    - Naifanchi: short, but full (compact);
    - Wankan: feels nice, has bunkai I like;
    - Wangshu: difficult but has principles that I like, dynamic.

    Perhaps. But you won't always be able to do the same things that you can do when you're younger, like....the two Kusanku kata?

    Back on topic, my top 5?

    Right now, I'd say*
    Naihanchi (Shodan, or all three combined)
    Itosu Passai
    Kusanku Sho

    *Opinion subject to change without provocation or notice. Especially if my knee is giving me trouble.
