Ratio of Male/Female practitioners....

All I have to say is thank god for female aikidoka, especially those that keep it up. I would get sick of training with blokes all the time! You need a balance.

A nice example is our childrens class that is almost 50:50 male to female. It has a delightful atmosphere.

And not wanting to dodge around the obvious issue... I have been out with 2 girls I have met through Aikido in 8 years. I think we all like to met partners with a common interest. As long as the training is maintained correctly, I think this is a positive thing.
