Apart from natural physical speed, 'fast' fighters must also process quickly. If not, then they'd be balistically fast, but be relatively blind and uncoordinated.Quote:

As an example, it is possible to be balistically slower than your opponent - and appear to an observer to be 'slow' relative to him, but because modeling is better entrained, you can be functionally faster.
With the getting there first scenario, they are effectively qunatum-jumping ahead of what 'presents' to a future potential position. This must be a probablility computation as it is not an immediate, sensory-data calculation. We all 'hypothesize' about future positions and relative motions, but if we have a conscious methodology to train it, then more of us can improve the more, rather than having the few outstanding naturally gifted folks always getting there first.
