Re: Problem with another aikidoka.

Henry's approach is a good one. If the fellow isn't interested, then consider reframing your original statement of the issues>
He has a problem with you as you were/something you did.
You cannot control how people feel.
All you can control are your own actions and feelings.
1. You can make yourself a better uke, the best uke you can be based on your training and attitude each day.
2. You can detach yourself from your desire or need for his friendship or his approval and focus on your own training.
