Speed, coordination, timing
There are two types of speed necessary in a fight:
reaction speed and movement speed.
In order to have reaction speed, what you must have first
is sensitivity (awereness of where and when to move).
The most important factor in developing sensitivity is relaxation.
Movement speed defines the time you need to cover
a specific distance. For this kind of speed you need
explosivity, which also depends highly on relaxation.
Coordination is best defined as ” body unity in motion ”
In order to achieve this, you must have stability,
which comes from proper structure and balance.
Timing is the ability to utilize the proper reaction
at the proper distance. Developing timing
depends on distance awareness. At an advanced level,
even speed and coordination are secondary to timing.

about speed, coordination and timing🙂
