    You two are not old enough to realize that someday that frog kick will help get your shoulders out of the water, so you can perform a legal recovery.

    Whoa, I had never seen or heard of this before. I'd personally rather them allow the dolphin kick on the breast than the frog kick on fly, though!

    Hey! I resemble that remark! However, I don't get how people think the whip kick can be so good for older knees, never mind that it is altogether less streamlined than the dolphin!

    I'm a breaststroke and learn fly with dolphin kick years ago. I can't do the fly with a whip kick it has to do with coordination since I learned fly with the dolphin not the whip kick.

    Agree with the frog/whip kick and my sore knees! Long live the dolphin kick.
