Maybe I misunderstood Ken.
I took his comment to mean that purposeful rotation is enough to propel & that the other "details" don't matter. That is wrong.
If he meant that because he just discovered purposeful rotation as his primary means of propulsion & he only wants to focus on that for now, that might make sense, but I'm not even sure about that. I'd have to know more about the swimmer & their stage of development.
