Hello Charles and everyone -
Good points...I am assuming that they mean that the opening and closing 
finger movements are contacting the palm of the left hand, like a frog 
jumping ....the left palm representing the ground the frog is jumping 
on... Meanwhile, the palm of the hand needs to be flopped with the 
thumb line on the left....At the moment it is the right hand... I am 
preparing a lesson on this now...Val ;-)
