Default TI Techniques for Combat Side Stroke?

Does anyone have any insight into how I could incorporate TI techniques into the combat side stroke? I'm especially interested in learning how to use the "hip-drive" motion and body relaxation to improve my efficiency.

There is a TI combat swim stroke DVD. I've never even seen a preview of it though.

Default TI for Combat Swimmer Stroke

You can find our DVD for Combat Swimmer Stroke here.
As with our other DVDs it breaks down the process for learning, improving and imprinting this stroke into small, simple steps that highlight the key skills involved in swimming it efficiently.

Default Combat to TI

I've been swimming the Combat sidestroke for several months now. I started using it due to a shoulder problem - it seemed to aggravate the problem less than freestyle.
Now I am trying to learn TI (using the Easy Freestyle DVD) but I find that I am having trouble going from drills to actual swimming. Breathing is a problem, but even without, I find that as soon as I go from drills to actual swimming, everything falls apart. I am wondering if my mainstay stroke, i.e., the Combat sidestroke, is actually causing me trouble when trying to transition to TI. I feel vey comfortable when swimming the sidestroke, but very uncoordinated when doing TI. My question is - do these strokes really compliment one another?
