Footwork. To be able to punch or kick with speed you must be able to move your body quikly. This starts with the feet. Then repetition, bag work, shadow boxing and finally sparring. True speed isnt when you are hitting a speed bag a hundred times but soft as a feather, rather true speed is accomplished when you are able to perform a technique properly, under pressure, with positive result.

Speed can also be determiined by the body mechanics involved. One of my training mantras..."It's not how fast you move, it's how you move fast."

Good post, Chen. Footwork IS key to speed.

Good post Kentao5, and welcome to the forums. The more efficient your mechanics are, the more that will help your speed.

When I was a teenager my aunt had a friend who studied Kung Fu and had attained black belt status. Once in a conversation he asked me what was better in regards to a fight power or speed. He followed by giving me an analogy of a bullet. He stated if I had a bullet in my hand and threw it at you not much damage could really occur yet if I increased the speed of that bullet by shooting it through a gun then how much damage could be done? Speed when harnessed and chaneled soundly is power...

Combination of repetition, bag work and weight lifting.
