A good 2 beat kick also comes from good balance . I think it is easier, at least for me, to think of the upbeat in the back of my mind when I swim more so than the downbeat . When I reach forward and stretch into the spear (with pinky angled slightly down, I had to mention), I think about getting my leg on the same side to just naturally float up and with also a slight stretch out through my toes .That also keeps the body long .Then as I pull body motion assists the downbeat and then vice versa.I also like to keep my legs fairly close together to receive natural body motions and so they also don't splay out with a mind of their own.
