Our Sensei was taught that body movement (of which there are fundamentally four, he was taught) is the basis of all Aikido techniques; your hands do little more than kokyu-ho up or down.

Can of course combine several tai sabaki into one move; if uke attacks with enough gusto...katate dori kaiten nage comes to mind.
