Techniques are an element in which your level of practice matters most. Advancements should imply to the quality of each technique you do, and not necessarily for their number.
You should learn multiple techniques, in order to not to be the person with an hammer seeing the world as a nail. But only few of these could be in your higher level of performance. Additionally, as you progress you should put much more into timing and distance, and reach the point in which you negate the ability to resist you by better movement making it harder to identify your technique before the lock is fully on.
