I have been watching some of the videos where Gordy demonstrates his Open Closed technique and it is really a great way to do a number of different steokes in a very rellaxed manner.
I am in no way associated with Gordy , just thought this was a very valid technique that is excellent for building technique and speed with relaxation. I found his comparison of the Moeller technique vs the Open Closed technique very cool too.
