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.
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.
