  • Wrist Up, Elbow Down
  • Wrist Down, Elbow Up
  • Wrist Down, Elbow Down/Forearm Down
  • One Hand Wrist Up, Another Wrist Down
  • Hybrid/Transitional (Wrist Down for Acc, Wrist Up for Jacking, etc.)

There are more specific details that can be added, but in general, wrist up and wrist down with elbow/forearm placement seems like a fair way of dividing the different types of hand positions.

EDIT: Recreated the poll to include voters.
