Re: Starting an all-women's class

There are plenty of men who are not interested in Aikido - they think it is too soft, or not a real martial art. I understand all your points Buck. We do think differently and we are complex. Even complex enough to find Aikido fascinating and addicting. It is after all a martial ART. We want to attract the women who are interested in Aikido, they may be few, but we want them all

Secondly, on the subject of women in science - Nursing is a science that is flooded by women - I guess that depends on how science is defined...
