Lesson #4: Backstroke Kick

In month 4 of the School of Fish, we discuss all things on the Backstroke Kick. We immediately moved into Backstroke, as it’s a long-axis stroke just like Freestyle. There’s plenty of similarities between the two strokes here, but lots of differences too. My goal is to teach you both of these by the end of Month 6!
