Hello, I'm taking classes at a studio which doesn't teach the 'J-hook' to lead a whip. Since I'm a student there I won't respectably be able to take any J-hook advice for this question due to their methodology. Thanks in advance. Their method of leading the whip is to redirecting the follower somewhere between 1 and 2 by causing compression with the hand/wrist while swiveling your body to the side. My question is...I'm having a super hard time with it. We rotate followers constantly and sometimes I feel that I can lead it almost effortlessly and then I have followers who get confused and basically stop moving mid-pattern. It's difficult to tell what I'm doing right or wrong because the follower might be breaking frame or generally confused, or might be hyper sensitive and basically back leading to some degree to make it a success. I know this is a hard question to answer, but what I'm looking for is any tips on how to lead this better.
