Help me choose my weapons techs!!

I am taking a third kyu test in the near future, and my sensei allows us to choose our own weapons techniques, ones that we feel best show our skill. I have a lot to choose from because I have taken classes that focus on weapons alone. I need help figuring out what would be appropriate for this test.

Here's what I'm capable of:


7 ken suburi
Happogiri (though without the finesse I'd like)
First 5 kumitachi


31-count kata (single)
17 of the 20 jo suburi techniques (still having trouble with the two flowing techniques and one of the wrist-turning techniques)
First 4 kumijo
First 2 kentaijo (Ken vs. Jo)

I's really like some help... or if there's something else I should learn for the test, I'd love the advice.

Re: Help me choose my weapons techs!!

If you have the time to pull it off, nothing impresses a teacher like choosing your *worst* technique, and getting it up to a good level by testing time. You'll learn the most this way, too.
