Andrea,
I was told at the beginning of my study of Aikido that if one studies the technique of ikkyo from all attacks and variations one will have learned what is required to perform practically any Aikido technique. After many years of practice I believe the assertion. Ikkyo contains the essence of Aikido. It is, therefore, the first or primary or cornerstone technique. It works quite well also.
