Rushing is a sign of fear.
You must come to terms with your fear, and relax. If you get hit, you get hit. Accept this.
When you flinch, anticipate or tense-up, you have lost control completely.
A more skilled opponent will defeat you instantly.
Yield, make space. Take your time.
Rushing is a timing fault. Your awareness is askew. You are not present in the moment.
