Re: When do you teach your personal style?

When teaching basics, I would teach to the form as it should be demonstrated on a test. However I think it is ok to specifically say "tonight we are going to do a nikkyo variation" or "before starting techniques tonight, we are going to do a partner exercise I found helpful for practicing the principle of irimi" - but in context of the rest of what I would cover in that class (nikkyo var. after standard nikkyo or irimi exercise before iriminage).
