We have some trails here that are very tight. Either you need to stop and take it through one bar at a time or twist the bars just before your hand gets smacked. It is very technical, but practice "twisting" your way through. Don't need to be in the tight woods for practice, just use small sapling along the trail, just before clipping them with the bark buster (I don't use them), a quick lean and twist, and plant the bar just on the back side on the sapling.
I don't know if this is a "sanctioned" technique, just how I developed it over years of woods riding.
