I saw quite much of this at the last camp by Doshu I attended, he showed the same technique maybe 20 times to make a point of something and many of the people their still did their own thing as usual. I find this very respectless. Who if not Doshu should be their main influence when it comes to techniques. Even if you don't always agree with the person who is teaching at the moment you should always IMHO do as he shows at least until the training session is over.
