Begin by holding the blade with your wrists down and away from your body.

Step 2: Toe Position

Get low: make the blade an oval.

Step 4: Start Folding

Bring your wrists (and the sides of the blade) towards each other: you're folding the oval in half now, like a taco facing away from you.

Step 5: Cross Those Hands.

Step 6: Let The Blade Do The Coiling!

The sides will want to coil up now; all you're doing is helping them along.  Stack them on the loop you were holding with your toe!
