When my instructor finished demonstrating his technique and it gets extremely awkward afterward. He doesn't choose partners for you, you had to do it yourself. It's been almost a year and I don't know who my partner will be or how they do it, I just wait and see who comes to me. That's why I always tend to sit in the last spot at first and wait for it and that's why I loved noon class because of less people and less stress. The worst part is when the attendants are uneven and when the instructor tells us to rotate partners after every different technique. Whereas in my old MT gym, during warmup which was 5 minutes skipping, the instructor would go to us one and one and tell us who your partners will be for the rest of the drilling session. I was always relieved.
