Holding the Razor
Pressure on Face
For more information about direct and oblique strokes, review my article that I dedicated to this subject.
Advanced strokes include buffing and J-hooking. I suggest doing an Internet search for videos on these techniques. I don't often use J-hooking, but I routinely use buffing strokes against the grain on my cheeks during my second, final pass. I can to this because my razors are relatively unaggressive and my cheeks are rather flat.
