He advocates tautness as the most important part of technique.
And that means the same as straight and balanced although he never talks much about balance.
He treats triathletes more or less as non-swimmers and has given up on much propulsion fron their legs.
So its keep them out of the way, make the body as straight and balanced as possible, add some reasonable arm mechanics at higher rates to help the non-legs and train hard.
Its a pragmatic method to get hard working fitt former nonswimmers fast in openwater races on minimal trainingstime.
