To practice without focusing is a waste of time. It is essential that we be constantly aware of mind, body, and breath when performing or receiving techniques. At first this is difficult, because just remembering where to move the hands and feet is already a challenge. Over time, through patient repetition, the movements of the limbs become familiar and more attention can be paid to engaging the hips. Breath and movement become linked. Eventually speed and power will be achieved.
