I have been told it is a rhythmic stoke, I am looking for the rhythm.
One kick is typically stronger than the other. Drills are the best way to find your rythm. They gradually help you build up your stroke and get a feel for timing. It's difficult to go straight into butterfly swimming if you are new to it. I wouldn't focus too much on looking at the commonalities between fly and breast. This won't be of much help.
