Re: Uncooperative participant

it seems like there are two things going here... as the association with parks and rec you have to basically allow access to other members of the 'public'... the issue of the aikidoka should have been discussed before allowing them to join the class... perhaps a call or letter to this persons old dojo/sensei would be appropriate... you did not say what rank the instructor at your dojo held, but if it is less than the 'visitor' that is of course going to cause problems since it is not 'technically' a dojo but a program sponsored by parks and rec, and he may feel his rank give him seniority and thus the final word on issues of aikido... two samurai in town one must die... hope things work out for you...
