I teach my students that the number 1 rule in Taekwon-Do is Distance (positioning), number 2 is Timing. Master those two and you'll always win.

Control the distance, control the timing, control the fight.

Strategic stepping, timing skills, makes everything else possible to fall in to place.

I think it's definitely down to the individual skill and talent.
Not the form of martial arts at all.
You can have the strongest punch in the world and best looking head kick but if you can't deliver it at the right time then it could be of no use.
You can say that to a tennis player, you could have a great backhand but if you don't get there in time and hit the ball at the right time then it all goes wrong.
Same with the goalie in soccer or etc..

Solid post!!

If you're not teaching timing, for one, then imho, you're not teaching anything whatsoever.

No matter what one feels is preferred the most, so on and so forth, just as long as what is being taught is effective to its Nth degree. Pushing that which is important to the forefront, and everything else to the background, whether it be Distancing first or posture first or timing first, and i.e., footwork second or angle management second or stances second...just as long as the whole vehicle is addressed, and not that the vehicle isn't built in bits and pieces.

Good timing can bring about opportunities, success and satisfaction.

Bad timing can bring about disaster, failure and dissatisfaction.

Therfore timing is something worthwhile considering in all things, as without it, that's too risky, leaving everything up to luck, chance and destiny.
