This is a good post from Devon Boormaster's blog:

getting-the-most-from-mixed-experience-levels

One of best parts of training under John Kells' were the Sunday sessions where you could be pushing hands with people of all levels and experience.

You could learn such a lot - equally from beginners who didn't know the rules as well as long term students who simply yielded leaving you fumbling.
