Well I'll throw in our two cents (that's what most of us including the sensei think in our dojo):

1. It is impossible to start training hard and fast from the scratch. (for beginners)

2. Yet, it is much easier to make hard techniques softer when you are used to hard and fast than make soft techniques harder when you are used to soft and slow. (for advanced students)
