7. the stretching routines from 9:42 are also taught in gym classes but with slight difference. in gym classes, we were taught to use our hands. why does Suganuma sensei not use his hands to pull his head/neck?
Turning the question back then: Why would you do it with your hands?
Natural movement of the head and neck should not require pulling.
