Just a question

I was watching videos of courage test (I think that what it is? I do not do SchH) when the dog is sent from a distance and bites the sleeve. I've noticed that not so many dogs actually run and hit the helper from a close distance without slowing down but many slow down a little or launch themselves from a few meters away.

I have a question about the latter - is it desirable and a proper way? It just occured to me that when the dog is in the air for some time it's easier for a human to divert the attach or move out of the way and then fight the dog who's out of balance then when the dog gets you from a close distance and with force.

Please forgive me if this is a stupid question, I just couldn't help but think about it when looking at different dogs performing.
