Speaking of differences in Japanese and American instructors - I have noticed that Japanese instructors do not tend to have "group practice", even if there are so many people you can't even fall safely, even if it is wall-to-wall with people. American teachers, however, I have noticed use "group practice" more often.

I personally cannot stand NOT using group practice if the mat is so crowded you might as well just sit back and watch. Why is it Japanese instructors seem to be so reluctant to use groups ?
