Hi folks, there is one question for a long time. How can I train the free hand technic ( open close, up and down whatever you call it)
It works for me slow but in a higher Tempo it will be get chaotic.
I look at a lot of videos by myspace and youtube but always the same . Did anybody can help me??
Please not the one handed roll...the one WITHOUT rim please
Thanks the chief

The free hand technique is exactly what you don't want- the roll using the rim. Instructions found here:

Open close really has the same concepts- one hit when going down, one when going up.
Search for Derrick Pope's tutorials on the net- It's the best tutorial on this technique I've ever seen. Also check out Tim Watersons vids on youtube. He also covers Push pull.
Mapex, Istanbul Agop, Attack, Vater/O4D.
I want an endorsement :)

Ok thanks the GRAVITY BLAST is not really hard to play for me , BUT the other tech is in my opinion cooler, because you can get even fast as with the Rimtech but it looks pretty much better than the rimt.
Thanks markus
