The class format is basically the same as yours from 9kyu - 6kyu White belts maybe. But at 5th kyu Green belt they know the drill and know why. At 5th kyu unless most are new to this level they warm up on their own in class, maybe practice the techniques at that level or some of the new material. Then class starts, if I notice that they haven't broke a sweat we do more excirses. Then class starts once they know how, you don't have to teach them to fish, ... Unless its a new excirses to develope a next level technique. Like the break fall roll into a strike or down low kick/sweep and back up, run. They already know this separately put it together into a sequence and you have an night fighting or escape technique. We do a ukemi pattern, as part of daily execirses.
