speed of technique
i was reading my new Book of Five Rings and Miyomato Musashi mentions a certain part about speed of technique and says not to worry about speed because it will make it harder to wield the sword.
Now, i use a sword of around 1.25 kilos, and when i do nukitsuke i try to do it as fast as possible but this tires me out quickly. So, my question to you guys is, how important is speed? In a real life situation, how important is it? Is it as important as correct technique?
