Ths only problem I have with this artcile, really, is that it very overgeneralised. The most flexible person at my dojo is a guy who can drop into full splits cold and he's built like a rugby player. Anyone who's been in the game for longer than you will seem like a wealth of knowledge. I get that you're trying to demonstrate how the playing field levels out, but it's sounding more like blatant feminism than equality.
Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??

As for everyone else thank you for your opinions. Duely noted but like I said I asked opinions of friends, black belts, and my kru from Muay thai.

I think there really are only 2 very simple reasons why you should train with females:
1. More players = more options = more money for gym and better for everyone.
2. By not willing to work with females you're a bigoted moron.
The rest in redundant.
Obviously every player you work with will help in some way, mostly from working with more experienced players (although there is merit to working with less experienced players as well, as many people claim that by pointing things out, their game improves). That's it, more flexible, you have to tweak you game some-way, stronger than you, another and so on.
Seriously, why would you not work with females?
