But if you want to learn butterfly from scratch forget about it.
The DVD is centered on 6 basic points of the butterfly stroke where most swimmers have problems and there is excellent footage of Misty swimming and there are detailed instruction on how to get each point right. For some odd reason the footage of people doing mistakes depicts children ages between 5 or 11. I guess the assumption is that adults' swim is flawless? The cover says "includes laminated drill guide", this is very _misleading_ advertising. First because they are not drills, they are the 6 points that Misty goes over, seriously the laminate has only six sentences which are of things like: "two kicks per stroke", "think like a dolphin", etc... No specific drills, no number of repetitions, etc... Also the price is insane! The DVD is too short, less than one hour. I imagine that it is too expensive because only swim clubs/departments or the occasional "duped" like me buy it?
Divided in 6 chapters/tips which she considers the most important and which she demonstrates.
It could be easily added another 26 tips that still wouldn't work for everyone.
No drills, no turns/starts/finishes, no gradual building of technique, nothing - just Misty swimming ( what's the most amazing, in case this is her personal promo, "The Race" on Olympics is not included! )
She swims very nice, but you can see almost all on the promo clip on goswim.tv and 40$ can be spent more effectively
