  Definitely involves a push

I wouldn't be too concerned with pulling since
that kills the torso rotation mechanism.

I liked the beach ball analogy in this video
to break the bad habit of pulling the paddle.

Pushing across the center line of the boat
with your top hand is key to transferring
your rotational power to the blade.
