Hmmmm ..... It's hard to tell whether the angle is exaggerating things, but I wonder if you are over rotating a bit; it almost looks like you're nearly vertical on occasions. If, and it is an if,...

FWIW, I see different timings going on here.... Shinji looks like he hasn't switched his rotation yet? His body is still on his right track, you are on your left. An observation, not an answer -...

Perhaps I should have said that the angle is subtle and is only there because of the position the shoulder is in and the hand is relaxed. Trying it on dry land produces the same results, leading...

Best mental image for me is imagining I'm being pulled forwards by a thread attached to the crown of my head. It helps keep my head in alignment when I rotate to breathe..... A variation of the...

by asymmetry do you mean always breathing to the same side? So what about breathing to the left for 1 length (or a distance) and then breathing to the right for a length? Is that considered ok? ...

Two things I notice, you don't have a patient lead hand and also it doesn't look to me as though there is much rotation - you seem quite flat in the water. I'm learning too, so I can't say that they...
