Forgetting & Remembering
 
During a table tennis match, is it beneficial to remember previous points or to just block out the past and play in the moment?
 
The answer is…   BOTH!
To reach your peak potential, you need to forget and remember!  I’m going to illustrate my point by sharing a true story that happened to me.
 
I was playing one of the most important matches of my life. 
I was down 1-2 in games in a best 3/5 match.

Pitfall #1

Looping Flips

Check out these 4 simple tips!

Root of the Problem
 
Unless you can find the root of the problem – your problem with persist and you will continue losing. I often ask players why they lost a specific match. They often respond with…
 
“It was a bad match.”
“I was just off.”
“I didn’t practice enough.”
“My opponent was on fire.”
