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

I think people have different definitions of what aikido actually is. Fundamentally I would say it is universal principles which we express through techniques. Not everyone can do the techniques, but the expression of aikido's principles can be done by anyone. As Lynn suggests, whether it should be done by everyone is another matter.

(heck - I haven't 'learnt' aikido; maybe it's not suitable for anyone to learn ;o)
