Re: No more Mr. Nice Guy.

1) Let it go.. go with the flow. If he bumps you, take it as an opportunity to practice Ukemi and subsequently tell him how great his atemi errr I mean bump was and laugh it out. Aikido practice is just that practice... don't let ego come into play, your or his.

or just simply....

2) Challenge him to a GONG-SAU aka RAN-DORI, JIYU-WAZA, KUMITE or simply DOJO-BRAWL. Last man standing wins. Simple.
Agreed with 1)
Just go with the flow. If he really wants to "bump", strap on a pair of gloves and see him in the ring. Otherwise just keep practicing.
