At a seminar once in Sweden, Tomita Sensei explained about Takemusi Aiki. He said that if you trained long enough you should be able to use the principles and begin to see the endless amount of techniques that one can use in any given moment.

He proceeded in showing an interesting techniqe against Yokomen uchi. He simply step of the line outside and down, allmost falling flat on his side, and used his feet to trapp ukes front leg, puching on the backside of the knee and holding the frontside of the lower leg with his other foot. This made uke fall flat on his front! I remember something similar from Jujutsu but hadn't seen it in Aikido before.
