I certainly you're right about that "IF" Peter
But i like to think that technique evolves from applied principles , technique as refined principle.
So it seems to me sometimes , that overlooking the principles and stressing only "proper" techniques , just will result on weak , innefective aikidoca because the later is restricted to very particular conditions and the former is more general in scope.
I only say this out of my personal experience on teaching and learning.
Hope it makes some sense.
Best of luck on your training.
