Re: Poll: Is aikido suitable for absolutely everyone to learn?

Tomiki-sensei said that he wanted Aikido to be available to everyone. He made Nariyama-sensei swear that he (Nariyama) would welcome anyone who wanted to learn. This is also why Tomiki named his style "Shodokan Aikido".

If the first student of Ueshiba to get a full teaching license of Aikido thought it was for everybody, who am I to argue???...

The people who understand, understand prefectly.
