I don't know, according to CASI, you need to teach the falling leaf. I guess my take is that you teach them that, but don't let them stay leafing for long. Work up to learning toeside and heelside turns as soon as possible. Sometimes with unathletic people, falling leaf can teach them how to be balanced on a board, while also allowing them to learn how to stop and change direction easily.
