    Shinji Takeuchi when do you make a YouTube Tutorial to swim like that ? I want to swim like that and I cannot come to the workshops because I do not live in Japan and that is the reason why I want that you make a tutorial on YouTube

      All I just want to learn is relaxed effortless swimming for long distance.
      But I hardly find people teach that and all the video in YouTube only covers how to race in freestyle.
      I like this video. Hope one day I will also learn to do like this...

              The main mistake I make is I don't keep my hand straight when I push water in other hand, I have to improve on that,by the way with one push he moves faster and longer.

                    Shinji, I have been swimming for 46 years and I still swim 3km to 4km a day.. I am so impressed with your effortless styles...I have many questions and one of them is how do you breathe and how do you overcome breathing on the left as smooth as the right ..I am right handed obviously

                                                  Does this style of swimming still allow for a good workout? From the video it seems like you would need to swim longer to put in the same amount of effort as the standard strokes. Granted, I get this style is working on flow and balance so it's really not a fair comparison, but how is it for someone who's looking to maximize exercise intensity in a set window of time like 30 minutes?

                                                    You can swim longer and faster thus you can do better workout if you like to do.
