That's all right Colleen

Actually, these aikidoka that are trying to make you do the technique 'their way' are usually doing what they were thought in their dojo and not what the sensei in the seminar was showing.
Absolutely true.

Quite often I have met people at seminars that where explaining to me what I should do, which most of the time was not only not what the teacher at the seminar showed, but also wrong.

Then again, I met people that claimed that what I was doing was wrong (even if it was shown by the teacher at the seminar) and didnt work, that tried to resist my every move,but kept on going down fast all the time. I still havent figured out the logic those people are using
