I learned how to do the military 8 from an F15 pilot this way. Pull nose up, freeze the stick and use rudder only to make the turn. Release backstick pressure once turn is initiated. Wing over and then use rudder only to level the wings. Pull back stick and do the same operation in the opposite direction. We called this a "canyon turn" as it really reduces the radius of the circles needed to form the not so lazy 8. Really a fun maneuver.
