Re: Poll: Is absolutely everyone suited to learn aikido?

I think it depends on how you define suited. Physically capable-no. Certain medical conditions may be made worse (bad backs, etc.). Mentally capable-perhaps depending on how you define it. Schizophrenic-not in my opinion-especially if paranoid. They might think students are after them during randori and hurt someone. I do think however it takes a certain set of physical and mental attributes to successfully pursue any martial arts.
