But,  For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Therefore if you use muscles to move your hand down faster than falling under gravity, would you not tend to move upward in opposition to the downward motion of your hand ?  I know you can catch falling items on Earth but will it work under 1/6 G ?
Yes, it'll be easier to do in 1/6th.

You can rely on the weight (and inertia, actually) of your whole body to offset the acceleration of your hand faster than gravity.
