Your list has plenty of variety in it and perhaps is your brand of Goju's kihon. But that is just a partial, representative list of the style's foundational techniques. Grabbing, pulling, takedowns and close in strikes are the core of most Okinawan styles. A style though, is more than technique. How the technique is done is also a big part. The "what" can be found in books, the "how" needs a sensei.

What do you think re: the question you posed? Do you see a common thread in your list? Is there a point you want to make?
