As a student, I was (and still am) not required to learn the names of the various aikido techniques. I've taken it upon myself to learn these. Obviously, the english translations are everywhere, but I'm not have any luck finding the original kanji for the aikido techniques. It is my hope that someone on here can relay them or, at least, point me in the proper direction. Any help would be very appreciated!

If you go to the Aikikai Hombu home page they have a chart with all of the test techniques. You can switch between English and Japanese so that would be a good place to start.
