I'm really glad to see people are taking more of an interest in learning how to "use" a saber.
A couple of things I noticed: 1. You need to relax....particularly your right hand. It looks like you have a death grip on your saber which is limiting how smoothly you can roll your wrist. 2. You want to keep the saber in tight to your body. It's important to remember this technique, from a practical standpoint, is defensive. As such you want to keep it tigh to your body to defend off incoming attacks or to drive your opponent back.
I just posted an tutorial on this spin in which I break it down into sections. If you're interested check it out here: Arryck Corso's Saber Tutorial Hopefully this will give you a better understanding of the Obi-Ani spin. And stay tuned as I'm going to be putting together an in-depth break down of the Plum Blossom as well. If you have any questions at all or need further clarification let me know and I can address that in my next tutorial.
Definitley good work thus far man!!! Just keep practicing and with time you'll find the spin will naturally become more fast and fluid.
