I think David Orange is wishfully (willfully?) deluded in this 'toddlers show aiki movement' theme.

And this I absolutely disagree with. Most young kids have terrible balance.

Well, first, it's not simply relaxed movement. It's relaxed, balanced, centered and in timing and harmony with the obstructive movement of another person. And at a certain phase of child development, it is reliable.
At what phase of child development is this harmonious movement reliable?
