Question Speed of training:

Do you think that it's better to practice full speed or to practice slower? Or should time be spent on both?

Personally, I tend to think that one needs to start out slow and develope a certain level of mastery of a technique before speeding up. This is for several reasons:
  • To avoid injuries.
    To train the body in the finer points of the movements in the technique.
    To see subtle mistakes that are being made and allow for more fine tuning.
What do you folks think?


If you're working too hard, you're doing it wrong.
