well if you'll look at the way his initial post is phrased, to me it seems like he's asking about how to improve the speed of his kick I took that to mean he as talking about a single execution like trying to beat his opponents defence via pure speed. if that isn't what he meant then I guess I missunderstood, but the overall point I was making stands as valid
