In my dojo, its expected that Sempai will help out new students with basic backrolls, shikko, etc. andything else that takes some time to pick up.

This sort of mentoring attitude is considered important when the sempai is being considered for readiness for the next test.

Also expected, helping with kid's classes, and the Girl Scout workshops we do.
