I practice in an Aiki-kai dojo. For a while during this year we have hosted an Iwama-ryu dojo in our fascilities. The arrangement is as far as I know that they can use the dojo outside of the time when we are training and in any other way the two dojos are completely without interaction. We are not incouragede to, nor discouraged from, taking classes with the other Sensei, but if we were to go, it would include entering as students in the other Sensei's club as well as in our own. Of course this is two very different styles and co-training would not be easily done due to differences in traditions, style, affiliation etc etc. Perhaps if it was another Aikikai dojo it would have been more tempting to try to create a cooperation, but it should be avoided in most cases (or so it seems from the posts above).
