Re: Training: Separate the Sexes?

i still hold to the belief that while it may not be in a technocal sense illegal... it is questionable... any lawyers out there???... recieving government money is i think a red herring most business don't get federal money, but try to go to a restaurant that says we only serve men!!! lets not get off track here it is a form of discrimination(good or bad) that could be likened to violence or disenfranchisment of women... I think his position is wrong... there are of course proper circumstances for same sex practices, but to discrimanate against all women is wrong... if any one seems more bitter than the original poster they probably feel like i that my art has be hijacked and comprimised by a practice that clearly is contrary to the basic principles of aikido...
