I read that Bruce Lee said speed equals strength. speed breaks boards and sends wood through cement walls. the faster a hit is, the more damage is done.
so speed should increase damage done both to people and to objects.
Also, if you fall and hit water to fast you break.
speed increases strength and strength increases speed, too, so how can this be included?

also, how come Rock Lee's gates don't increase speed rank even to one in the pdf?

that's why there is such a thing as "fall damage".

First of all, the gates came before the rules for Speed Ranks. Secondly, increasing or not speed ranks on this case is irelevant, because most gates already enhance Dexterity, Speed or Defense ( more than enough to emulate Lee's or Gai's supernatural speed), and stacking with any Speed Ranks (Yeah... That's one of the reasons for gates being overpowering...).

BTW... I have a house-rule in my current game, that i created to balance gates and allow it to be used by players. Each usage of any Hachimon Tonkou technique now costs 1 Action Point.

No disrespect to the dead, but... I don't care.
