I don't think katon should be taken into consideration AT ALL. Even if you assume he had it first if he were a Jounin in part one too.
The thing here was that it was brought in part 2 together with wind, and believe me I was dying to use some wind arguments and blow the whole team 8 outside the arena.
But Kurenai did not have a chance in part 2 to show some elements that could be mentioned for part one too, so it was utterly unfair for us to use katon, and team blue to have nothing to defend themselves with, coz they only had genjutsu to play with.
really, it would have been unfair to use katon in arguments coz it would have given my team too many chances.
