That's true and of course this poll is not scientifically accurate as are any internet polling. Despite that, it is still revealing as to whether most women are more intimitdated by learning ukemi than men. But it also shows that some women were not and some men were.

It is also interesting to note that it appears many more men came to aikido already knowing how to fall versus the 7 (so far) women who have.

I also wanted to add, that look at the number of women who have responded so far about 67 compared to the 200-50+ men who have. That number is pretty revealing itself. Of course we won't know the final tallies until this poll is closed.
