It's important to start with the freestyle as we've mentioned before, then to move to the breaststroke and just after you feel comfortable with those two strokes we move to the breaststrokes."
To feel one’s body weightless, floating in the water for the first time, buoyed up and drifting with the waves, is one of the milestones of life. Everyone probably has some memory of their first encounter with a public pool, local body of water, or one of Earth’s oceans. And learning to move with purpose in the water, instead of flailing about, was probably one of the most apprehensive moments of childhood; hopefully most of us had someone there to help us and teach us how to swim as the fishes do. Eventually, many of us became strong swimmers, utilizing the forms and strokes that are widely accepted as proper swimming technique.
In this course, Swimming Instructors Rotem Agame and Olga Tzinker give 14 easy video lessons on How to Swim the Breaststroke. Some of the topics in this course are: Leg and Arm Movements, Pulling and Breathing, Kicking Without a Kickboard, and many more.
