In this post, I discuss how to fix the abanico technique.

If you cannot view the video, click here.

Some beginners execute the abanico technique in a way that resembles angle 1 and 2.  

This usually happens as a result of inadequate torquing of the wrist and lack of self awareness that they are not relaxed enough to pull this off.

This fanning motion is most effectively executed when torquing the wrist in a relaxed way in conjunction with the elbow and the hip in order to create the whipping action that abanico is known for.

Relaxation is key in the execution of the abanico technique as well.

If you’re not relaxed, the abanico technique will not be as effective as it should be.

Did I say that you need to relax? 🙂
