ABOUT TOTAL IMMERSION

Shinji Takeuchi, TI Japan Head Coach and the YouTube Swimmer, will direct various workshops, sharing secrets of his renowned graceful freestyle, which has resulted in his becoming a Youtube sensation. We will teach you several key skills of a “Shinji-like” Freestyle depending on the workshop you choose to attend.

Balance

Learn to cooperate with - rather than fight - gravity. Balance gives you a comfortable, weightless and stable body position. It also allows you to immediately replace “survival stroking? with a long, relaxed, unhurried stroke -- the swimming equivalent of jogging or walking during a long run. Balance is the foundation of control and confidence that paves the way for every skill that follows.

Streamlining

Drag or water resistance does more than anything else to rob you of speed and endurance. Streamlining is the solution. In Passive Streamlining, you shape your body to be longer, sleeker, more hydrodynamic. In Active Streamlining, you learn to move through the water rather than stir it up or push it aside. Reduce drag and immediately swim farther, faster, with less effort.

Effective Propulsion

We’ll teach you to propel more effectively and save energy in two ways: (i) Channel available forces (gravity and body mass) instead of generating muscular forces; and (ii) Shift the workload from weaker, fatigue-prone muscles in shoulders, arms and legs to powerful and fatigue-resistant muscles in the core.

Enhancing stroke length

Speed is defined by Stroke Length and Stroke Rate (Tempo). The key to increase speed is to increase tempo without losing efficiency (stroke length). First we focus on enhancing stroke length without compromising speed.

Tempo control

Key components for increasing tempo without losing propulsion are 1) spear 2) grip 3)finish. Several drills with focal points help you understand how to control your swim tempo.

Tempo Trainer Practice

We offer more effective ways to practice whole stroke with using Tempo Trainer (waterproof metronome).

Open Water Swimming Skills

Necessary open water swimming skills such as sighting, swimming straight and drafting to maintain your speed.

At the end of all our workshops you will be given all video files on USB drives so that you can bring it home. The drive also includes sample drill videos performed by Shinji himself.

WHAT TO BRING

For the classroom: Medical Release form, pad and pen for note taking.

For the pool: An extra suit & towel if you want dry ones for the afternoon swim, an extra pair of goggles. We recommend that male students wear a Speedo-type brief or close-fitting triathlon swim shorts, rather than loose-fitting swim trunks, which can make balance even more of a challenge.
