    When I do a seminar i ask ahead what the school wants to work on, then I get a few moves to start with...from there it is feeler.

    split the seminar into 2 groups and show them differents techniques: beginners and advanced.

    just alternate between groups while demonstrating techniques to make more fun.

    Less with more detail is better for sure! Then maybe have a small amount of time toward the end for people to ask for quick advice on higher risk moves or if they want u to demonstrate some "fun moves'.

    Leaving a seminar feeling overwhelmed with info and moves kinda sucks to be honest.
