Breaststroke is the most challenging stroke
For most young children breaststroke is the most challenging stroke to learn. Breaststroke is challenging because the kick requires dorsiflexion of the foot. This in conjunction with plantarflexion, which is in use in freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. For most swimming teachers, the major mistake made is that they try to progress children too quickly. The stroke unfortunately then results in children using an incorrect kick.
