>What style did you use to practice? My style is Shotokan.
Shotokan-brofist, and yes, Bassai Dai is a banger. Quick and forceful, nice to show off. Unfortunately, as a green belt (more like an orange belt, because I had to quit shortly after the green belt exam), you normally never get to try it. But in our small club there were two training days a week, and at the second one not many people participated - but I almost always did, so everyone practiced together. No separation of the groups in apprentices (everyone up to green) and advanced (purple and above), so I practiced with the black belts. When it came to katas, the sensais basically said to me: "Just look what the others are doing and try your best". I did, but I still was embarrassed by running around like the n00b I was, so I started to learn them at home. At the end, I knew how to do all Heian-katas, Tekki Shodan, Bassai Dai and Jion I think, and I also knew the german translations of all the katas. It was fun when the sensai actually asked about that, and the black belts were standing around clueless while Mr. Orange dabbed on them :DD
Also fondly remember my orange belt exam, where we had a really good sensai from another club as instructor. During warmup we did Heian Yondan (what is purple level), and for the above reasons I already knew it. We were lined up sorted by belt color, and the other yellow belts were freestyling, while I actually did Heian Yondan. Sensai walked up to us, looked at me: "Why do you know how to do that?" - "Have to, because I sometimes have to practice with the higher ranks". "Which club are you from?" - "$myClub, SIR!", of course with pride in my voice, knowing that I just did honor to my dojo and my sensais :DD
Also, I always thought that in Brazil Capoeira is the hot shit! But that is probably the same stupid belief like that in Germany everyone wears Lederhosen™
