Re: Speed in waza?
IMO, speed in practice is like distortion for a guitar player. It sounds great, but it also covers up a lot of mistakes. For me, the only reason to practice at speed is for the timing/evasion aspects of avoiding/slipping strikes, once I make contact/kuzushi I try to slow them down and test my ability to maintain connection and kuzushi via what i'm doing in me.
