I don't think so. I think we can move quite fast while breathing slowly if we have the training and are relaxed. Breathing quickly is a sign that we are taxing our system, to me. We only synchronize an exhale with a strike, but footwork and parrying could be done without that exhale, yes?I was always taught that movement matches breathing. If my breathing is fast then my tai chi should move faster to match my breathing. Breathing controls movement.
Right now, you could probably do some of your forms quite quickly, while breathing slowly, I think.
