The video shows a demonstration style skill of a number of skills. Note the exaggerated movements and breaking up the skill into small parts. Your student will only pick up part of your demonstration, hence the exaggerated demonstrations. I urge you to practice all your skills to this level, which is what we call demonstration style quality.
This is how every skill must be done.
