Usually I vote very easily to the questions in the polls.
Today it took me some time and thought to figure out what to vote for.
IMHO, this poll has a tricky question.
The thing that confused me the most is the term "good idea".
I wonder, would the question have the same results if I was to ask : "do you think women-only classes are a BAD idea" ?
I myself enjoy practicing with Aikidokas from both sexes, but it doesn't mean all women will feel comfortable doing that.
After all, Aikido does involve expanded physical contact.
"Good idea" or "Bad idea" should be decided according to the circumstances and the personality of the Aikidoka herself.
As mentioned before, there may be different reasons for women to choose training this way.
It's all in the eyes of the beholder.
