To girioasis: the first Venezuelan Yudansha was 9 years a go the last one I know 3 months or so.
"But to bring this back to aikido, women can hold their own very well in a dojo. Out of 88 in my dojo there are about 16 of us. Most of women in the dojo are yudansha. We have several female shodans, a few nidans, a couple sandans and one godan. All these women would be insulted if they were called "flowers", "gossip mongers", and "weak". Aikido is a great equalizer. That is why I love it so much"
You are so naive and funny, I yhink I like you.
