Running some example combats before the campaign starts will be extremely useful for you.
I've tried that, but my own learning curve is impeding it somewhat. They are, thankfully, understanding that I'm horribly rusty with GURPS (my 3ed experience was with Supers, to boot, so much more cinematic and high tech) and that I'm catching up on the nuances as well.
