Re: Speed in waza?

I had never before heard. "Slow and smooth, smooth and fast." Thank you. I had however often been reminded by Taleb Sensei that it is "timing not speed." This is clearly reinforced when I use a katana. Moving fast is an easy way both to lose the encounter and to cut oneself. Moving at the right time and in the right way seems to be what everyone is saying.
