Default Breastroke Dive

Does anybody know how to do the proper breastroke dive.
Though I don't mean how you just dive.
Like if you do any pull outs or stuff like that.

Hi 324

Orthodox thinking says you should dive a little deeper than for freestyle then after a brief pause start your pull down with dolphin kick (which must start after the pulldown has begun). Then you are allowed a single breaststroke kick and your head must break the surface before your arms begin the insweep.

Here's a link to the FINA rules
