Re: 10,000+ techniques

Also for the record, O'Sensei would say there was only One technique in Aikido and that every technique is different.

Maybe like a leaf. One leaf:many variations of the leaf.

If you kinda scan back you can find him making all kinds of references to the # of techniques. I suspect that he was sometimes being a trickster.
