Pulling. It is generally used to either move someone, or to initiate a movement such as the erroneous ‘pivot’. Usually initiated by a Lead but also a Follower as well, when the Lead will grab or hold firmly to the Lead’s hand, where the Lead’s shoulders and shoulder blade creates tension and torso rotation by exerting backward force on their arms and shoulders which is felt as outward pressure, as if the arm is coming out of the sock (on the Follower).
