AMEN!

So perhaps it would be better to have a separate men's class, in which the basics of keeping ones' mouth shut and letting the partner train would be thoroughly covered in a supportive and understanding environment...

Just kidding.

Seriously, women's classes IMHO sound like a bad idea because obviously we have a lot to learn from eachother.
