Sounds the same...

Kicking can help to initiate the torque (roll) that propels the opposite-side hand to full extension, shortly after it enters.
Or you may prefer to visualize this as starting to pull while kicking with the same-side leg. Timing can vary slightly.

yes I tried this yesterday in all kind of variations just to get a feeling
what might be best. It seems that if you kick right/pull right
the kick must be first
In the coach freestyle DVD the headcoach shows it the other way
pull n kick with the opposite leg
All the other swimmers in the pool use constant kicking
so I can t get a glimpse how the 2 bK looks like
I hope to visualize it at some point, so it gets easier to practice : )

Default tuning your legs for 2bk

I train each bodyside seperate, one kick ,one stroke
and later, when more advanced put it all together.
