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.

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.

From Asia to Africa to Europe and even to the USA, there are thousands of professional table tennis athletes who are aspiring to be the next World Champion.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day to fuel an intense early morning session.
Here is the secret recipe for my power-packed breakfast.
