I was just wondering if some of you guy's would give to feedback, as well.
Do you have any tendency to do a flutter kick when you're streamlining off the wall? Finishing a breaststroke kick shouldn't be inherently different.

One useful way to practice a breaststroke kick is to do it on your back, which eliminates the need to think about breathing. If you're finishing your kick properly, you should feel your body soaring forward at the end of each kick, and you shouldn't feel any need to flutter kick.
