Re: speed: good question from kohai

Sometimes going fast is good just for the joy of it. I know I'm not the only one who enjoys being tossed across the dojo once in a while. And going fast is a different way of testing oneself than simply examining a motion as one goes through it.

so far, the answers I've been getting make me think that the vast majority of us spend the vast majority of our time training at a walking or jogging pace. Again, not a bad thing: I include myself in that estimate, for all of the same reasons already described.
