Learn breaststroke & butterfly turns
Around the Academy:

Introduction

The same type of turn is used for both butterfly and breaststroke.

The laws say that you must touch the wall with two hands and because of this a touch and pivot turn is used.

The main thing to remember about this turn is that you only need to touch the wall not hang on to it.

The quicker you touch and pull your hands away the better.
