First-person methodologies deal with the description and use of experiences as they appear to the performer of the action during a physical-sport activity. Such methodologies try to offer the participants useful tools by helping them to boost their own autonomous monitoring within the skill’s process of acquisition. Studies such as Masters et al. about explicit-implicit teaching and Wulf et al. about the focus of attention show examples of first person methodologies and present some general notions about how to use them. The discovery of phenomenal invariants and their transmission through adequate analogies, metaphors or simple instructions will be the basic methodological procedure Swimming case study will help us to show, more specifically, the issue we are referring to.
