"I can't hit a woman" - kind of comment guarantees that I'll both throw harder and make locks more painful for that person.[/b][/quote]
Do you really think that such a behavior is Aikido? [/b][/quote]

Is looking down on me because of my sex/looks aikido? are we not supposed to be equal at dojo? I'm just far too frustrated being treated like that. the majority of my opponents behave, but there are those too that don't. What I'm trying to show to these people is that I'm not a fairy: I won't fall apart by pain or bad ukemis.

p.s. I should have calmed down before writing my first message. I'm a bit too spontaneous, but aikido is a great tool in learning patience.
