3. To Lynn's point, I think many of us have worked with victims of abuse or assault. Sometimes these students have special needs in their training and we work to re-integrate them into class. For me, this approach often has two strings: 1. the students recognizes the special need and compromises to find an acceptable solution (such as private instruction or limited training opportunities), 2. the is an end when the student integrates into class.
Yes agreed.

How is rigidly forcing others to violate their religious beliefs practicing Aikido?

Curious.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
