Ditto Don.

Timing is extremely important as I age. My observations of speed is that the fast one goes the more likely the technique and control of that technique is likely to deteriorate. Too slow is a problem as well. One of the worst dan tests I ever observed was done with everything very fast. There were no aiki principles used and everything looked sloppy and out of control.
