Yes ITF Tuls are a series of fundamental movements strung together. Yes they have a defined pace between movements, much like the metronome in music that helps musicians keep the musical beat. This is called rhythm & is a graded category in Tul competition. So there is an exact beat or rhythm that we must adhere to in between moves of the pattern, like 1...2...3... But then in the execution of the individual movements it will be more like A...B..C. if that makes sense to show the acceleration. Again it is confusing as our combinations have set parameters within the Tuls that define the movements & the revisions to SW to be able the more effectively complete the combinations. (Sorry this may be too complicated to explain via the venue) As far as SW goes, please think of it as a way to move your whole body into the movement & execution of the technique.
