In my dojang, we usually arrive a few minutes early for black belt class. The class before us is usually a beginner or intermediate class. Just recently, I was the only black belt hanging around and the instructor called me up to the front of the class to assist. The main problem I had at that time was the fact that ALL of the practice routines and katas had to be done BACKWARDS from my viewpoint. Since I am facing the students, they are going to mimic everything I do. My "righthand" downblock will produce a "lefthand" downblock from them. It was kinda herky-jerky for a while but I survived. Any first-time or early "hiccups" in your experience as an instructor?
