Hmm... my memory of BSL for sister is a double touch rather than a  
brush. I can see why it would seem that way from this site, but I  
think it is just emphasizing the movement for beginners.  I agree with  
the first writing Stefan wrote rather than the relaxed bend in his  
second writing because I remember seeing it more of a tight bend then  
relax, but that really is up for the actual users of BSL to decide. ;-)

In Stefan's first email, he mentioned brother so I had to take a look.  
Interesting. I had to check on the site to make sure that movement was  
an alternated up and down one that rubs because as it is written, I  
couldn't see how the rubbing happened if the hands both moved up and  
down together. After looking here, I found that I was right and it  
also looked to be a brush rather than a rub. So, I have added my  
version of writing it.
