Like Kushanku is the ‘end’ of Pinan; Chinto can be regarded as the ‘end’ of all Kata - in particular the internal strength Kata. The sequence should therefore always be Naihanchi, Seishan, Chinto. Naihanchi starts with programming your body. Seishan continues to develop this skill with different types of body movement and techniques. This Kata finalises this by increasing the variety and difficulty of the techniques as opposed to Seishan.
Chinto combines the skills from Kushanku, Naihanchi and Seishan all together in one Kata.

Yes. Different rhythms are possible in the same Kata. BUT the rhythm affects techniques and their emphasis. It's therefore of extreme importance not to just "find your own rhythm" or "give the Kata rhythm". Be aware that if you pick a rhythm without realising the consequence of that rhythm - you may completely miss the point...
