Around the Academy:

Step three

Your arms are your power, like the engine of a car.

One arm should follow the other through the water and over the top.

Try putting your hand into the water in front of your head and stretch it forwards as far as it will go, slicing it into the water with your thumb first.

The less splash the better.
