The grip is not part of Hogan. Hogan's premise is that the position/movement (right wrist 'tray' as your right arm moves in front of your body) you need for golf is unnatural and you need to train to hold this unnatural position as long as possible in the movement. He suggests (and I agree) that you can only focus on one thing in the downswing. He believes you need to focus on maintaining this 'unnatural' position of the hands.

The grip is the IMA grip with the right hand turned more ala Moe in the 'Journeyman' tape (not overlapped but in a position that would allow me to overlap ala Moe).

I didn't know you'd studied kendo (or iado). What I do is slightly different - I don't twist back aganst the right with the left but stop the left in the degree of 'Hogan Position' (from flat to about 30 deg. 'Hogan') I want and keep the right pressure against that.

In his response to your questions, Peter Fox mentioned the 'non-playing staff at NG Corp.'. Maybe it is the same element that seems to not be refining the instruction but rather refining the marketing.

FYI - I still can't identify with push or pull. Everytime I depart from a pure 'body bend' initiation, I get visibly worse results in maintaining the angle and getting the resulting excellent contact.

Have you videoed yourself using the pusher move?
