These are great responses!!! I do avoid this jerk like the plague, and he shows up only for the special, un-advertised classes. We think that one of our friends tells him about it because the class is for our students & friends only.
At seminars - no problem - I stay away.
This last time I was very stressed and just his presence was enough to make me crazy!
I deal with idiots all day at work and need Aikido to keep me sane & happy!
Thanks to all of you for giving me suggestions and food for thought.
I do need to remember that I am training for me - don't make it about that moron!!! Thanks for reminding me
