Re: When do you teach your personal style?

We take steps to ensure all the dojo in our organization have consistent kihon versions of techniques. We do this via instructors meeting every other month and an instructors seminar once a year.
Which I think is a great idea, but it doesn't really answer the question. One's "personal style" is not going to be kihon, by definition.

I would never teach variations to brand new beginners, unless it was to explain the reason for a particular movement. But a class full of black and brown belts is probably ready to start thinking about how many different versions can still be "ikkyo."
