Re: Article: 'Sincere' Attacks: A Platonic Dialogue by Peter Goldsbury

Nice article, but reading things like:

free sparring in aikido because it requires a very high level of expertise and without this level of expertise it can quickly degenerate into ordinary wrestling."
aikido could benefit from free sparring, but in most cases it would degenerate into some form of wrestling or unskilled shooto
makes me wonder about what could be the motivations for the use of the word "degenerate". Why not "evolve" or even a neutral "move"?
