There is only one sure-fire way of developing speed in martial arts: repetition of précises moves executed at the very limit of one’s ability. Speed is acquired by pushing through the limits and the only way to find those limits is to perform as fast as possible to muscle failure, recover and perform again. What happens next is a testament to the body’s ability to adapt. As the muscles are asked to perform again and again at top speed for a length of time that challenges them, they change and the limits get pushed further back. If you are serious about becoming the best you can be, seek to find where the limits lie and then strive to get past them.
