Unfortunately, due to the shallowness of the swimming pool I use for my practice, which is only 1.5 meters, I have no choice but to just learn how to dive from squatting position. Even then, I still slam all the way into the bottom of the pool. In order to dive safely, the depth of the pool should be at least 2.5 meters. Diving into a shallow pool may cause head and/or spinal injury.

Day 3:

After 3 days of learning how to dive, I decide to postpone learning how to dive till I find a deeper swimming pool. This 1.5 meter pool is too dangerous. On a number of occasions, my face was closed to slamming onto the floor of the pool. Perhaps that was why, I could not seem to straighten my knees upon entry into the water. Perhaps it was a defense reflex, probably out of fear, in order to create some resistance to slow down my entry.

As my diving practice is being put to a halt, I proceed to learn breaststroke kick.
