My dojo has always been mostly attended by men, so working with that many women was a new experience. I tried to draw some conclusions about any differences between men and women doing aikido
It's been my experience that, generally, a dojo is a more pleasant place to train when there are more women, although I believe you that on an individual basis it would be hard to point to differences.

One other thing that is true about Aikidoka relative to the general public (but not relative to other arts) is that they generally have had to recognize that some things can't be learned by thinking about them.

Yours in Aiki
