Like most I voted yes.

However, I'll add that it isn't always the case. I'm not perfect and sometimes I come in wanting to really go and it sucks to get a beginner. In my own case, I didn't have a lot of senior people around for my first few years on the mat (none outside of sensei would be more accurate). There were many times I wished my fellow artists would go to the Magic Aikido Farm and get Black Belts so they could help me for a change.

None of this means that I don't work with them or that I don't like doing it. It just means that life doesn't always give me what I want and I'm still working on not being disappointed in that case.

PS: Anyone who avoids beginners is massively short changing themselves.
