Dolphin kick

From Openwaterpedia

noun - The dolphin kick is the fifth stroke of swimmer where swimmers travel underwater in a streamlined fashion after pushing off the walls in a swimming pool either on a swimmer's back or front. In the dolphin kick, the power and propulsion comes from the legs as the feet sweep upwards and downwards while the body’s core remains taut and tense.


Coach Joseph Bernal revolutionized the sport of swimming with the dolphin kick made famous by Olympic champion David Berkoff.
