Re: practice, doing it wrong to get it right.

No. When ever you are doing something within the dojo someone else can always take what you are doing as an example, especialy someone with less experience. The one thing you definitly dont want to do is set a wrong example. This means you have to train as correctly and perfectly as possible, hence doing it wrong, even to help somebody, is not an option anyway.

Another problem is often what people consider wrong anyway. A lot of ideas of what is right exist, probably most of them are wrong.

I personaly think that the way a student can train with beginners is one of the important ways to actualy see the level of skill and understanding of this student. Less experience shows in weird solutions and adaptations.
