  1. Firstly practice a drill that will fine-tune your body position and get your shape right.
  2. Next practice a leg kick drill and try to maintain the body movement as you kick.
  3. Then perfect the arm pull technique by using a basic arm pull drill.   Then apply what you learnt from the body position and leg kick drills. 
  4. Next, practice a breathing drill. Master the timing and technique of the breath.
  5. Then try adding it all together by practicing the timing and coordination drill.
