I am sure you had never seen a 1 handed BH being hit before, and never watch a 1 hander pro on TV, and never even practiced it before. You were not using an Eastern or an extreme Eastern before.
And all of a sudden you were hitting it. Right.
I too learnt it on my own. It came through a series of "Ah ah"s as thinks clicked. That is my feel, and only I can feel it. I don't need any philosophical approach to that. And yes, I started by observation and reading books and watching and asking questions.
