To complete the method, you must give full play to the swinging and swiveling of the upper arm, so that the force can penetrate the free tip section. This method is quite powerful. But because of the swinging action amplitude is large, the instrument put the long requirements of the force to be rapid, released to suddenly, to close the stick to fast, accurate striking. In this way, the power of the method can be reflected.
