Seems that way 'cause they have, I think.

I've personally learned no less than three different variations and the teachers who taught them to me each opined strongly that their's was The One True Way of Yokomenuchi.

Okay, I'm exaggerating a bit. Okay, I'm exaggerating a lot. At least about "The One True Way" stuff.

Still, if I've learned three different variations, well, I probably represent a tiny, tiny microcosm. How many are there?

(Carl Sagan in the background intoning:
"There are billions and billions of yokomenuchi variations, each one unique and special.")
