Gamecock: Fast or Quick
A fast gamecock is all about speed.
I have seen a fast gamecock that crossed from one end to the other end of World Slasher Cup arena. It is more than 20 feet of distance but he still caught the other gamecock on the ground. And he killed his foe with his multiple blows right there where it is standing still.
A quick gamecock is alert, smart, and intelligent.
I have seen a quick gamecock that killed several fast gamecocks right where he is waiting before the fast gamecock can deliver a blow.
I have seen a quick gamecock that dodged the attacks and blows of his foe by just side stepping a little. Then before his foe can maneuver to change direction, a quick gamecock will deliver a killing blow from behind or from the side.
