Shummai,
I'll try to figure this out next time I attempt breaststroke. I do that when I get frustrated with my progress (or not) on my freestyle breathing.

Can't say I've had much success with this. But then again, I haven't really concentrated on it much. I have not had access to the pool much in the past few weeks so when I get there I try to...

My opinion may not count for much on this topic since I obviously haven't mastered the skill yet, but I "feel" that this is the crucial point for me. I know that I am still sometimes (too often) not...

My daughter told me to try this (bobs, bobs, bobs to imprint the easy going rythm) but it's nice to know that a TI coach recommends this too. I'm assuming you mean bobs, standing in the water and...

Yes, I think I trained myself to hold my breath very well when I was learning the stroke. (People are amazed at the lung power) I do consciously exhale when I am now learning the breathing, but...
