I've become engaged in numerous instances of debate, over whether the knowledge of tuite is even necessary to be able to defend one's self. And of course, there is still an ever lingering question about the ability to even utilize tuite during an (actual) confrontation.
Acquiring that knowledge takes time (as well as having the experience of practicing those limb manipulations). The greatest mistake that I observe (regarding the practice of tuite) is the mistake of assuming that any reaction, equates to being the (or even "a") correct reaction.
It is those false reactions, that are the nemesis of what is passing for being taught as being (proper/correct) tuite by the majority of schools today.
