Hi I’m Brett Clarke and welcome to my table tennis basics video for Today, I’m going to show you the easiest way to think about basic technique so you
can clean up your act My strategy is called the Golden Point
method and it’s all about elbow position. The reason the Golden point method works is it makes you more compact and keeps your upper arm out of play.
Let’s start by looking at the elbow position for all of the basics strokes in table tennis. Backhand push, block, counter hit and topspin Forehand push, block, counter hit and topspin. Overusing the upper arm is the number one mistake table tennis players make If you’re struggling to get your head around the simplicity of the golden point method sit down and
I’ll show you some more Backhand push, block, counterhit and topspin Forehand push, block, counterhit and topspin The arm rest is key, because it stops us from messing up the elbow position. Try it for yourself. Watch 12 times Australian Singles Champion, William Henzell playing his shots. See that his elbow position is very similar for all of his stroke on contact. He does however use a little upper arm a little on his topspin strokes to add some power on his topspin strokes to add some power and that’s fine if you are using your wrist and forearm
correctly. if you like to come on a journey with me and learn how to slow down and finally
get your basics right you can go to You will also be able to view over 150 instructional videos by world class player, William Henzell as well as my current videos that will teach you how to serve Like a Boss!!!
