Yes, I agree with you.
The problem is that we donít know ideal procedure on how to hit FH. After 30 years from now, current FH technique probably would be ridiculous. But, at least we should try to understand what is really very important and what is not.
For example, Lock&Roll coach emphasizes too much importance of the hips and body rotation. But, when he demonstrates FH, his arm and its parts (including wrist) are very active. Thatís why I dislike his monkeyís drum idea. IMO he puts wrong accents in his explanations.
