    Pick a fighting style from the series you would want to have. It can be from anyone, main character, villan, whatever.

    I would choose to learn Gatotsu.

    Second choice would be Aoshi's kodachi techniques, especially kaiten kenbu.

    (Hiten Mitsurugi style, nah, its better left to someone with kenshin's mentality).

    Yeh, Gatosu as well...you can impale anyone with that technique. (and it was a real technique, not a made-up technique like hiten mitsarugi)

    Hiten Mitsurugi- but with Sejiro Hiko's mentality. Although kenshin's mentality is good, it too much of a bleeding heart for me. Swords and guns dont protect, they kill enemies.

    or Aoshi's double kodachi technique.

    Just a statement, the Gatotsu was not a real technique. If you search up Saito Hajime in Wikipedia, you will see that it is not a real fighting technique. Though there is something similar to it that is real, and used for a surprise attack.

    I think Gatotsu is just Saito's variant of the technique developt by the 2nd leader of the Shinsen Gumi. Saito just uses his left hand and added some variations like Gatotsu zero style and stuff.

    Swords and guns don't kill people, people kill people, just using guns and swords. I would pick Gatotsu as well in the first place, in the second Hiten Mitsurugi.

    gatotsu is too simple even though it looks really cool...i would want Aoshi's Double Kodachi Technique but more importantly i would learn Enishi's Watojutsu....its a really unpredictable and dangerous technique...it gave good kenshin quite a nice beating
