ok i studied aikido from age 11 to 15 and I am thinking about coming back after a little break since school is calming down again.

My sensei taught us all kinds of techniques, and we practiced techniques beyond our ranks since we had gotten our basics down well and they could be used for the higher level techniques. I also saw demonstrations from my sensei and his sensei and they all seemed to use just variations of what we learned or more advanced techniques based off the basics of aikido.

I was just wondering if there are any more dangerous and complicated techniques that blackbelts only practice or teach in the presence of other high ranks that I would get to learn if I got higher in rank??

Everything is secret until you learn it. And you only get to be a high grade when you are good at the techniques - therefore - the biggest secret is to be good at the techniques.

This from the horse's mouth:
"Progress comes to those who train and train; Reliance on secret techniques will get you nowhere".

- The Art of Peace (tr. John Stevens)

Having said that, the real secret of aikido is in the ukemi. Once you master the ukemi, you will have no problem mastering any technique.

There are no secrets. Everything is basic. Everything is simple - when you know how. Just keep practising.

You don't even need techniques, or to think of them at least, when you achieve the right state of mind. Same in Taiji.

Advanced moves are nothing more than basics that are used in combinations, or under different scenarios than what they were originally taught for.

Understand your basics, and you will understand the advanced moves.

thats why sometimes people's ego gets so bloated by counting the number of so-called advance techniques they have thought to have acquired creating a false sense of security.

while the truth is, advance come from understanding, knowing and mastering the basics.

just an opinion
