    Actually I was taught to turn that way some 40 years ago (a children's
    class with an RSCDS teacher).  We used to practice the different
    holds by doing slower turns and faster turns so that at any time we
    could take either hold, or change from one hold to the other, smoothly
    and easily.
    
    It's only recently I've realised that the RSCDS don't seems to advocate
    the closer hold any more...  When did this change slip in?
