I've been lucky enough to move around quite a bit since I've been training in Aikido, so I've been able to see several different styles. I think the important part is realizing beforehand that things may be different, and keep eyes and mind open to the similarities, which I have found always outnumber the differences. Look at the differences as a whole new way to do things (expanding your capabilities)---and if someone tells you that you are doing something wrong, when you are doing as you had been taught, tell yourself they meant to use the words 'different from what was shown' and don't let it get to you.
