Kids

Learn 5 reasons why your son or daughter should start playing table tennis...

   
 
 
 
     Kids love table tennis.  Even starting as young as five years old, kids love the excitement.  Many parents don’t see the benefit.  They must realize that table tennis training develops character.

The Tactical Mindset

Post-Tournament Analysis

 
 
 
 
 
 
     Just like any other table tennis skills, developing a tactical mindset takes discipline.  As I work through the various styles over the coming weeks and teach you how to play against various opponents, I want you to understand that you too can think of your own tactics.  I’m not very smart, I’m just an average guy.  However, I do spend quality time thinking.  You too can develop this same discipline.

Efficient Training

Devastating John Doe

New Tactics Article on Beating the Unknown Opponent

 
 
 
 
 
The tournament published the draws the night before the event.  You found out that you are going to play against Hou Yingchao in your opening match of men’s singles at 9am.  You immediately take out your pen and paper and write down some note of how to play him.  You arrive in the gym at 7:45am and train accordingly. 
 
Just then…
 
Without warning…
 

Chance Friend

We Welcome Chance Friend

Chance Friend
 
Why is he developing into one of the best US coaches?  It isn’t his rating, it isn’t his US ranking, it isn’t his forehand or backhand or footwork.  It is his mind.
 
See, most top players began playing at 7 or 8 years old and the skills were developed at a young age from repetition again and again during structured training programs.  Not for Chance Friend.  He had to work through many things on his own learning skills throughout his teen years and he learned to watch pros, think for himself, and try to develop his own game.

Hitting Zone

Backhand Hitting Zone

One of the most common questions is…
“What are similarities and differences between forehand and backhand loops?

There are many differences, but today I just want to talk briefly about the hitting zone…

Short Push

Check out the video!

When pushing short, most players error in 1 of 2 ways. They either slice it hard with wayyyyy too much energy and the push goes deep OR they simply touch the ball and it falls off their racket. You want to push with enough energy to impart spin but look to impart only spin, not speed. This creative little exercise has helped Sarah Jalli and many others to learn the short push. Check it out!
