Ron and I teach all of our classes together so we both can train at every class. It is challenging and fun. Do you get a chance to train? How often do you take ukemi for your students?
Do you like how it is or do you want it to be different? Either Ron or I start the class then the other one of us teachs something that comes from what the other has done. Our students seem to enjoy..as do we.

That sounds like a really good approach!

I don't attend the class, but I believe my sensei and his wife split Monday nights class. She does what he wants and he either builds off of her or does something else completely. :)

My wife and I do that from time to time, and it's always great fun. Often our schedules are such that only one or the other of us can go to the dojo on a particular night, but we also take each others classes as often as possible.

Our dojo is small, and we train with everybody - so we take ukemi from our students all the time. I often take ukemi from my students when I'm teaching so I can feel what they are doing (or not!).
