Yep, IMHO, I have seen (and probably done) some too early tanking. Especially with beginners so that they can get the feel of the technqiue. Later I will comply due to correct execution rather than cooperate. With others, I am not tanking, but they have my balance and I can be a bit top heavy. There is a fine line between giving them the technique so they can learn and giving them the technqiue so they can't.
