I'd still love to hear from muslims on this issue. I can understand you not wanting to post in this thread as it has pretty much devolved. So please feel free to send me a private message.
Over here in Egypt are two teams, one that changed the way of bowing to each other and O'Sensi's pic with slight leaning forward with the right hand of the chest as a gesture of greeting without being called bowing to one another, females and males alike.
The other team just do it the old classic way except they keep their eyes forward facing each other, not entirely bowing in this state, females and males alike.
The only noticeable thing about clothing, females tend to wear their Gi as they would with any other form of clothing, they wear Hijab or they don't
Other than that, its just all about practicing
