Baby Swimming Lesson Video: Smart Fish Method Back Mat-Kicking

SFM Back Mat-Kicking, “Hold the edge of the mat with your hands.”

Step 1: When sitting on the wall while holding the mat:
Kick UP with the shoe lace part of the foot. Splash the water. Move the mat with your feet and the water.
Step 2: When swimming on your back while holding the mat:
Hold the mat with your hands, arms stretched STRAIGHT.
It must cover you knees.
– Do NOT hold the mat under your arms… on top of your belly.
Step 3: When hanging on the wall, doing vertical kicking against the wall:
– TRY DOING IT WRONG: Lean your head too far back, chin high. You will notice it is very uncomfortable.
– TRY DOING IT RIGHT. Bring your chin forward.
* THEREFORE… IT IS BEST TO:
Keep your chin level. When you are on your back, look straight up.
Do NOT put your chin up too high.
