There are 17 Dojo Techniques to be learned in Okami and they can be taught by the Onigiri-Sensei in one of his three Dojo's that are found in various places in Nippon. They do not reappear in Okamiden.
Holy Eagle is the only move that is required to progress in the game, all the other moves just make it easier. When you start a New Game + all the techniques that Amaterasu has learned will carry over except for Fleetfoot, Holy Eagle, Digging Champ, Holy Falcon, and Hardhead.
Many techniques cannot be learned straight away as they are improvements on other techniques, however you can learn them if you have mastered the previous one.
Each technique will be tested after you have learned them and Onigiri Sensei will comment on your progress. He will not let you go till he is happy with your learning and he will then give you a technique scroll in case you ever forget the move.
