Hi , Krystal,
Renrakuwaza. cheers, Joe.
Or renzoku waza. The meaning is almost the same, I would say. Renraku waza translates as a continuation of techniques. While renzoku waza means a group or serie of techniques.

Both are used in Aikido for a sequence of techniques. Although I remember a conversation with a Judo teacher who pointed out to me that there is supposed to be a subtle difference between renzoku waza and renraku waza.
Renraku waza would then be more a combination of two or more techniques, while renzoku waza would be a series, a sequence of techniques.
But I have never heard any of my Aikido sensei make that distinction.

kind regards,
