    I've been using this video for years with great results. From kids to adults so many have decided to at least try two handing so they may as well learn the correct way to do it.

    Great video, I have been practicing this for the last five years or so. I just need to man up and go full time. Contrary to what most think, it is easier for me than single handed bowling especially with my health issues.
