I tend to agree with you AikiTom. I think very often practicing with a partner with less experience than me helps me to figure out on my own why a technique is or isn't working. In my dojo, more often than not my sempai will give me a point or a hint quicker than if I figured out an error in my techinique. Plus, I figure that I like to give my sempais the opportunity to practice with advanced students once in a while as well. That and mainly I like to practice with as many different partners at different experience levels and well as physical types. Lastly, what better way is there to meet and welcome the newcomers to the dojo than to bow in and practice with them?
