Re: Aikido maneuvers

Short Answer: ~150 - 200 Kihon Waza, about 3000-14000 variations, depending on school. Also there is many different kinds of weapons training, since they're less codified.

Long Answer: O-sensei said that once you've grasped the concepts of Aikido, you don't need the techniques anymore, since your movements become the techniques and you flow as one. There's infinite amount of variations you can do with the power of Aiki, so it all depends on how much you train yourself.
