The left hand should be at the top of the stick, with the wrist in such a position that if you are wearing a watch you would be able to see the time. The right hand should be half way down the shaft and gripped lightly to allow the stick to rotate.

A common fault is to grip the stick to tightly with the right hand. One way to correct this is to place a toilet roll tube over the stick and get the pupil to grip the tube lightly. This will allow the stick to rotate freely.
