Forward rolls

Can you swim? Sounds a strange question I know, but the arm action of a forward roll is very close to the arm action of a good front crawl. The leading arm touches the ground little finger first and the roll continues along the arm, across the back and to the opposite hip. Difficult to convey in words. This method was taught to me and I've used it to help others, it's a good visualisation. Works for me!
Have fun.
