Speed and quickness come later in Aikido training, it´s developed after endless repetitions and constant practice of the basic techniques. Once you have an acceptable understanding of these, then you can increase the power and speed, also your reactions get quicker. Most novices will try to do the techniques as fast as they can, but it just results in sloppy technique because their balance, footwork and focus first need development and this takes time and patience.
