Yeah! I've been wondering about that as well, but I havent' worked up the nerve to go ask my sensei yet. Anyway I'm going for 3. kyu this sunday, and I'm just happy that I can do the tsuki techniques instead of morotedori, as they suit me better.
I guess the difference is based upon the perception that women are attacked differently than men - go figure.....
