Aileron Rudder Mixing

I'm a beginner and recently purchased a manual from which so far is an excellent resource. For beginner setups, they strongly suggest using aileron rudder mixing to prevent adverse yaw. Their reasoning is when you you graduate to a sport plane with symmetrical airfoil, you wont have to learn to not use rudder when turning. I understand that logic; however, my question is when mixing rudder in with turn, you're not holding it throughout the turn so wouldn't it essentially just bump the rudder, along with aileron, at the start of the turn? Before mixing, I've held rudder throughout a turn. Is this wrong? Should it just be at the beginning of the turn or are there some scenarios (wind) that would warrant holding it throughout?
