What a horrible image. I can just imagine the carnage.

Just taking this off on a bit of a tangent but generally how inclusive does one have to be for various infirmities.

I like to think I am quite accommodating and do allow quite a bit of flexibility with respect to intensity of training but I would consider Aikido to be not for everyone.

With respect to dizziness - if it really is that bad should you be doing Aikido. Same thing with blindness, hemophilia, etc. Questions of can I safely teach you, will your involvement negatively affect the training of me and my students, come to mind.
