Assuming that you are a beginner, just let your legs draft as you work on BALANCE and STREAMLINING drills. Then the full stroke.

Once those skills are firmed up, switch your focus to the legs:
Concentrate on kicking downwards once (or flicking your toes) - about halfway through the pull -with the leg that is on same side as the pulling arm.

Yes Im a beginner, I started to swim freestyle in March 2011
and got the TI self coach DVD in June : )
I did a lot on Balance and streamlining drills
and its fun and works : )
Now I ll try to focus on the legwork
which is my weak side and needs training
ThankYou for your advice with
kicking with the leg
that is on same side as the pulling arm :)
I ll try to keep it in mind in the water ~~~
