No, the legs are allowed to be apart. But when they are closed during the kick like in a breast stroke kick, it's forbidden.

I think that's man thinking, not shark thinking. If the shark is hungry and the human fits the size, humans belong to the pray scheme. Why should a shark make any differences?

That's exactly what I think.

It's like a child learning to read. First I puzzles all the letters together and then, suddenly it can read fluently without effort.
