Tink and Buzz fight all the time, it's generally just minor scuffles and I always try and distract them before it turns serious, but on one or two occasions it has got serious enough to scare me - they're both trying to be the Alpha female and it's not working!

Unfortunately, dogs will fight sometimes, and if you do ever find yourself having to break one up, the first thing to remember is not to panic.  Don't try to pull the dogs apart as chances are you'll get bitten for your troubles.  Throwing a blanket or a large towel over the dogs is the best way to get them to stop, or failing that, douse them with water.  But the bets method really is to distract them from a potential fight before it turns nasty - there are always warning signs.

As for taking your dog out of the class, this sounds like it was a once-off incident.  Maybe speak to the person running the class before you do anything drastic.
