Massively advantageous to be on the ball of your foot. Okay I've never discussed this much before so my limited experiences could be aligned perfectly to give me the wrong impression but here is my opinion: a person who remains flat footed is ****ed, im going to hit them and they won't be fast enough to get out of the way, likewise they are going to be easier to take down.

People sometimes compare speed with power, the assumption is that there is a base level for speed at which power becomes viable for comparison. But make no mistake speed is god.
