Again, the comment was raised as to how freeform aikido is emergent from chaos. A quick search of the web bought up the view point that aikido was to wrest “order out of chaos”. This troubled me, as I ask myself “whose order”?
For me there is something important in being able to recognize, own and express as best I can, that this chaos is something I am part of, and is me… and you!
It is out of the mess, the “dancing leaves” * that novelty arises – creation!
