Re: Techniques in themselves don't work

Agreed. Techniques on its own doesn't work. Generally it does of course, but it's not the end you are looking for.

I would hazard... You seek power of Aikido. Behind it is the principles that operate in and out of a technique. Understanding that and applying it is what works... Until of course you reach another level.

Of course my decade to your several means little...

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
