Re: Equitable?

Sorry, I had no idea that my words would be taken that way. My intention when I brought up the other inequalities was to highlight the fact that these ratios exist simply because there just weren't that many representatives of these aikidoka-minorities 25+ years ago when the current senior level instructors started out.

I tried to steer the conversation towards suggestions about improving the situation two times now. My opinion is that the bottom-line is that you fix this by getting so many women training that there is a good gender split for Aiki Expo 2025 or so. It seems that I am alone in my opinion so I'll stop.

Rob
