video in Apple Quicktime video format - [ download Quicktime Player ]
I find it very effective to Pause the video clip in the Quicktime player, then use the Right Arrow and Left Arrow keys to advance (or reverse) the video frames slowly -- and to check body position and timing at various points in the stroke cycle.
