    Praise for Don Walsh and his technique for teaching CSS:

    "Everything that Walsh teaches as far as swimming CSS is right-on! His method is easier to understand over the new DVD at BUDS. In a 1.5-mile ocean swim, Jamie Waters and I took first place. We smoked everyone!" -- Zach Campbell, BUDS Class 264

    "For those looking to excel at BUDS training, this DVD in the key to your success. I know this to be true because I have been successfully mentoring SEAL candidates for over 13 years and have the track record to prove it: a 70% success rate at BUDS with 68 out of 96 candidates graduating to become SEAL operators. Don Walsh has been affiliated with my program since 2001 and has had a major impact on our success rate. Don is the master of the CSS technique. He and his DVD have my highest recommendation for those wanting to master the swim techniques that are vital to succeed in the quest to become a US Navy SEAL." -- Captain Drew Bisset, USN SEAL (Ret), Chairman, SEAL RDAC

    "What makes Don's CSS program so effective is his clear, concise, simple progressions that produce dramatic results instantly, without fins, flotation, or other aids that often mask bad technique or form. Don's results speak for themselves." --Bill Atkinson, HTCM SEAL (Ret), NAVSPECWAR/NAVSPECOPS/AIR RESCUE Mentor

    "I have been working with Captain Drew Bisset for 12 years, screen-testing and training SEAL candidates. Don Walsh has showed me his technique and exercises for teaching the CSS. This has greatly improved my teaching and helps the candidates swim much faster with less exhaustion. Thanks again to Don Walsh for all he has done to help our candidates pass the screen test." --Ben Panas, RDAC instructor and motivator

    "As I watch Don Walsh work with young Navy SEAL candidates, I realize what a valuable contribution he would have made had he been available 60+ years ago. If our Underwater Demolition Teams in World War II and the Korean War had been taught his CSS technique, we would have been able to swim faster and more efficiently, and would have had reduced casualties as we swam in to the islands prior to our invading them. Today's SEAL candidates are most fortunate having Don provide them with his expertise and guidance." --Barry McCabe, WWII Frogman and RDAC staff member

    Ok, I should have paid more attention, but this course is very specifically designed for Navy guys learning to pass the side-stroke test that's required for Seals.  VERY specifically.  Still, it's interesting and well-done instruction.  Not the fitness-stroke I'd expected but a gliding-stroke with minimal arm and body movement.  I can't review this without also mentioning that the background music is a MOST irritating and constantly repeating song.  I appreciate that it's supposed to be inspiring and patriotic, but it's just awful.  My future viewings will be with the mute button on.  At least it was on sale.

    As a SEAL hopeful, I found this DVD immensely helpful. Being a beginner swimmer, I was getting nowhere watching the short YouTube clip. The way this video broke down the stroke into simple steps and then put them all together made it easy for even me to learn. I recommend it to any other SEAL hopefuls.

    I used to be an ocean lifeguard on the East Coast at Smith Point Park on Long Island back from 1978 to 1987. Now, as a 48 year old fitness swimmer, I bought this C/D out of curiousity and to see what the BUDS trainees trained with. As an ex-Air Force doctor, the background patriotic "liberty" music is never grating, but to the average person it may be distracting. This C/D is good to help one gain confidence and relaxation in the water, and I find it helps one's core immensely. It is an inexpensive way to learn a method of swimming that is great for cross training. Just don't think that this will help your cross-chest rescue technique.
