Re: your number one technique
There's only nine main techniques and to have a favourite one is ridiculous. They all need to be good. Further, to suggest a favourite is to suggest that that is what you would do against a real unprovoked attack when in reality, what you should do ought to be a spontaneous natural response to the attack / its direction / its force etc. in the moment. You couldn't just do your so called favourite technique, but if you have that mind, you would probably try to, and get wiped out.
