Thanks for your replies....

I read through the last "Training with Women" thread & was wondering on the whole, if anyone honestly has a problem in training with women, and thus wanted to create a slightly different sub-thread.

I have no problems where I train, we are all treated equally in all respects, but in training elsewhere & with other people (& not all the time), I have come across SOME men who have either thrown women in a very soft, flippant way, or harder than the men, both maybe suggesting that they would prefer to train with men only.

Simone, this is what prompted the thread & I would like to stress that not all male Aikidoka treat women in this way, but it does happen to me from time-to- time; either way, this helps us develop our characters, technique & ukemi, I guess!
