Loved the FAQ article, especially the question that described the difference between hiking poles and Nordic walking poles and hiking and Nordic walking.

Use the standard rhythm and technique, but swing both arms forward at the same time planting the boot tips slightly behind the handles. Then, keeping your arms straight, press down on the base of the handles, walk between your poles and feel your arms extend past your thighs and behind your body.
