Shane Watts does a similar exercise in his class. Although he doesn't beat you if you get it wrong... he doesn't have to, the riding does that for him. I was so sore I could barely walk for several days after 2 days of riding with him.

Cornerspin sounds awesome. I'll have to make a trip out to one of their classes sometime.
