Re: 10,000+ techniques

Yeah, there is no way there are 10,000 seperate and individual techniques in any martial art.

There are a few, limited number of fundamental "techniques" and the others are just variations of the first one.

For example:

Nikyo from cross grab, from same side grab, from double grab, from the front, from the rear, from a strike, from a kick, from a headlock, from a bear hug, from whatever....they are all Nikyo, just variations of the same lock. They are not seperate techniques.
