Default 2bk,


I find it easiest to set off holding my feet together and still. I initiate rotation from my hips. As Terry has said, it is almost impossible to resist a diagonal toe flick. Within a short distance you will find yourself doing it. In my case if I think about it too hard I may lose it. In which case I start the process again.

Nice advice Ken. I also find it helpful to start laps with a no-kick glide pushoff. Then I start my 2BK directly with my first stroke. It's a challenging exercise in both balance and coordination.

May your laps be as happy as mine.
