I think there is a spelling error here though, Valerie. I suspect the
variation being discussed is where the right hand (dominant hand)
touches the back of the left hand (non-dominant hand) twice with
somewhat of a grasping or touch motion. I haven't seen a variation of
English where both hands actually move up and down while being grasped.
See my previous email for suggestions on these ....
