Step 1: The Push
What you will need:
The time and patience to learn.
Hold the pen like pictured in the image so that the index middle and thumb is in a triangle while you hold the pen between your index and thumb.
Take your index and release it from holding while you push with your middle finger remembering to keep your thumb straight.
Step 2: The Catch
If step 1 was done correctly the pen should have done a 360 degree turn around your thumb as if it was magically glued but how do you catch it?
As it comes around from the intial spin back to where you started just take your index finger and try and catch the pen in the same place you started from.
