Re: Aggressive aikidoka
OTOH, perhaps they "sense" something "different" about you but can't put their finger on it. "Baiting" you may just be their (unsophisticated) way at getting at an explanation. Perhaps you could be honest about your condition and tell them how it affects your training. Perhaps all they need is to understand that "attacking" you is not communicating with you on "equal footing", given your condition.
