Joystick grips tutorial


#1

Is there a tutorial on different ways of using the joystick. Not just showing the grip but playing with the grip. I think 90% of problems for beginners is trying to execute the moves consistently. They won’t be able to move onto the harder combos if they aren’t comfortable with the way they hold their joysticks.

Its all about personal preference. Just find a way thats best for you and there you go


#3

I want to know the different grips so I can find what is best for me.

There’s a thread about it in the tech section.

I use my fingernails. I don’t cut 'em, cause I get more chi flowing that way.

I grip the balltop like it was hazardous waste, barely making any strain to move it.
