Starting Slow?

Hi everyone! Would anyone mind sharing their thoughts with the group about this?

What are your opinions on "slow" training? That is, starting out with a technique slowly and then going faster (or smaller) down the road? There's the old adage, "If you can't do it slow, don't bother doing it fast".

I'm not looking for "that's bad/good", but maybe you could tell us what benefits you see or have experienced in training slow or not training slow at all.
