With your hands shoulder width apart, bend your arms to ensure that your elbows are further out than your hands. This will ensure that the fans do not catch against your forearms.
Regardless of how you hold them, ensure that your middle finger is in the spinning hole and that you are able to retract your remaining fingers quickly. Start with your fans facing forwards and slightly upwards. Release them so they swing downwards and retract your fingers and fold them so that they are well away from the fan. Make small cylinder motions with your fingers to keep the fans spinning, remembering to keep your arms bent and away from the spinning fans. This will produce a forward vertical spin.
To perform a backwards vertical spin, begin with the fans facing forward but lowered. ‘Flick’ your wrists so that they travel upward. Given enough momentum, they will then drop towards you. Make cylinder motions with your fingers in the same direction to perpetuate this backward vertical spin.
To ‘catch’ a spinning fan, move your thumb inwards. The large, fleshy part of your hand joining the thumb will brace the fan frame. As this happens, slip your thumb over the frame and secure it, your fingers following suit.
As you gain more experience with finger spins, you can ‘stall’ them into other moves, perform spins high and low, and alternate them so that one fan spins forwards and one fan spins backwards and split-timing them, creating a true ‘buzz-saw’ shape.

i have found that spining with two fingers instead of one is better for me since my fans have a more larger grip ring three to be exact!!!!

I've recently discovered the joys of strapping tape for fingers.... my hop fans are a little rough inside the spinning hole... leaves a rather random red sore ring on my fingers, but a bit of tape lets me play with finger spins all day long!

Chardy: This is a very late response, but hopefully it answers yours and others questions!
