His text describes, for the first time in the literature, the differences in timing with the total stroke when using a wide knee-spread kick, as well as the timing to be used in the narrow kneespread kick. 19 Breaststroke in the 1930s featured a more downward arm movement. Influenced by the way the breaststroke kick was used in the new butterfly-breaststroke, the kick also became narrower when swimming the orthodox breaststroke. From Armbruster 1942. Bela Rajki (1956) described a fully stretched body position that formed a slight angle with the water surface.

Dick Cavill, Tums’s brother, couldn’t believe what he saw. After a few private time trials, Dick was convinced that his brother really could sprint faster without using his legs. Dick reasoned that when properly applied every ounce of power must increase speed; therefore, the scissors kick was radically wrong.
