it is mandatory by my pro .... whether i like it or not. trust me .... i dare not disobey
It was also mandatory by my teacher. He would check the makings on the floor and if they were not clear I had to do them again. If I protested then there was no lesson until he had seen me do a 1000 heel turns.
In the begining I used to call then hell turns.
