Initially, the new practitioner in Ving Tsun get in a uncharted space and ambient. As if it were not enough, some proposals will mess, or diverge, of concepts like classroom, teaching and learning like we hear common sense. Would not be strange if this ambient be disconfortable at first moment.

Take easy, young people of family ambient! Don't seek approval from the old people. In the chinese culture, the parameter for the actions of subject is not the model, insted it is the development of situation. Therefore, do not exist the "right thing" and the "wrong thing" to do in the moments of practice.
The classic chinese think makes new member free of a lot of suffering. They make all actions possible for the new practitioners! Why? Because they are learning to read an unknown ambient. In the case of day-to-day practice in the Mo Gun, the responsability to provide a appropriate ambient for expressions and learnings of the youngest members is from the responsible Tutor for the practice, and in the last instance, from the oldest member in the space. It's a gerontocracy?! No! It is because the oldest member present is the most experienced subject in the Mo Lan. Experience, in rule, brings wisdom.
The kung fu family recognize, in the majority of situations, that the oldest member is the more capable to provide experiences to all younger practitioners, including the responsible tutor for the practice, if was not himself.

Think with me: if you are the youngest brother or sister in the Mo Gun, you are the member of kung fu family that receives more care from the others. In other words, your main concern must be learn the maximum that you can, and be the most sincere in your words and movements. But this formulation changes a bit if there are younger practitioners than you.
If you are seeing something wrong or weird with the proposes of some old kung fu brother or sister, at first it is good, but keep this thinking and wait for the appropriate moment to place it. The appropriate moment is the key to "take easy", to not get tired fast. A good thing in a wrong moment for this thing is a wrong thing! A wrong thing in a good moment for this thing can be a good thing! This phrase charge many contradictions, but it is satisfactory for this moment and to close this topic.
