Some of you have been drawn to develop your 2 Beat Kick lately.

I would like to call your attention to some resources that may help you.

First, if you are new to this kicking style called the 2 Beat Kick, then you may first want to view some of our stroke demonstrations on the Video Tutorials page. In any video where you see me swimming whole stroke you will see a 2-Beat Kick behind me.

It would be important that you first understand how the 2 Beat Kick is different from other styles of the flutter kick (namely, the 6-Beat and the 4-Beat kick). Then, you may learn why we prefer this style for most of our swimming purposes, and then to learn how to acquire it.

Please start by reading this article 2BK Defense, which will provide some additional links to the remaining articles on learning the 2BK.

And then you may go back to the Video Tutorials page and study the 2BK drill videos there which show you the various exercises we teach to help you train your brain and legs to prefer this kick pattern.

Then you may want to check out the 2 Beat Kick section on the 101 Focal Points page.

Enjoy, and let me know how it goes!
