Good Sunday to all of you!

And thank you, Stefan, for your question above...

This is easily written in SignWriting. Tiny contact symbols, such as  
Strike, Brush, Rub etc are combined with tiny arrows inside the  
Facial Circle. Some of these commonly used movements are already in  
SignPuddle, such as these:

Notice the tiny arrows, and tiny Strike Symbols. The arrows are  
always right or left arrows in the Face!

We have one Tongue Movement in SignPuddle at the moment...

So now I am piecing together tiny brush symbols with arrows to show  
you how I would write that...
