Time management will be easier the more confident you are in your abilities and in your dominance of the opponent. If you are confident, you may be content to be down a point or two, knowing you can make them up at will. If you are not confident and are down on points, you may rush the action and burn out before the round ends, allowing your opponent to score even more points.
If you are ahead on points, you should keep up your attacks while being extra careful not to give up any points. If you go purely defensive, you will allow your opponent an opportunity to attack more and possibly score more points. If you are behind on points, you should attack steadily with relatively sage techniques while maintaining your defenses; do not get rushed and lose control of the situation.
