One easy remedy is for me to stop taking kneeling shots Andy.
I appreciate that it doesn't solve your problem, as a BFTA official, but .......
Unfortunately I'm not sufficiently proficient to be able to identify what is, or is not, good handling/positional shooting. So selecting which camera shot to take, or not take, would at the moment, be difficult for me.

Inversely, if shots which I've taken can be provided as proof of 'error' to an approachable shooter, then please feel free to download. However, I don't want to be labelled as a 'spy-in-the-camp'.

Ironically, Neale, my partner on Sunday, corrected me on my second kneeling shot, using my bum bag.
Not in an authorative manner at all ~ rather very generously, providing advice, not admonition.
He explained the rules to me and suggested better use of the bag, to comply with the rules. And, incidentally, I found it more comfortable.
I even hit one of the targets. (though we did both agree that it was probably a fluke)
You're only young once - so it's best to make it last for the whole of your lifetime.
