  3. Hi Brian,
    It is similar to "fingertip drag" drill, with two slight adjustments: 1. The swimmer drags the whole back of the hand through the surface instead of just the fingertips. 2. The emphasis is on a forward strike into the catch position. One of swimmers felt it reminded him of Moonwalk, this the name it was christened with.

    1. Thanks. We do a "Fingers of Death" drill that I think accomplishes a similar thing.
