You need to adjust you seating position and hihat and drum heights so that you are not "handcuffing" yourself. Your sticks should clear each other. Don't use your arms - play with your wrist and fingers.

Move in slow motion playing a groove and watch how your body is moving and adjust equipment position accordingly. Using the John Blackwell technique is not required. if you just want to learn how to do that or do that to strengthen your left hand then that is another thing.
