Principles or Techniques

4 Principles:

1 - If the way is free, go forword.
2 - If you run into an object, stick to it.
3 - If the force is greater, give way.
4 - If the object gives way, follow it.

What is more important Principles or Techniques?

Techniques - the number of things you are able to do in a fight.
Principles - How & why something works.

One of my old instructors use to say "Understand the principles behind the techniques & you can create all the techniques you want, but know just a technique and all you have is that one."

What is your guys reasoning on this? And what do you think of the principles above?
