As I said, there is (used to be?) some confusion about terminology - wolfie summed this up pretty well previously.
But this is a terminology issue, not a question of technique - I have all of Nev's videos and he does not advocate what rasmasyean describes (the "release the twist ... in the opposite direction" bullshit).
