How To Maximize Forehand Power – Table Tennis University

Okay transfer your body this is in table tennis, it’s very important. Right now if you are just practice just start you’re going to transfer from this leg to this leg. So do it a little bit slower you, no rush to bam bam bam bam hit the ball
every single time no rush. Just slower. You need to feel your body can add more power on the ball. So from back side move to forehand, move to this side. Back side front side. So just slower, I’m going to show a few balls. Slow down, slow down not that fast. Move from back, move forward. Back, move forward. It’s the same thing loop, it’s the same thing. So move back then move forward. Okay this is body transfer from back to forward. When you practice more
and more and you get higher level you can feel your control (power) came from your body It’s going to come from your body, the power, I mean the power. Your arm just control and follow through. If you do forehand loop from back to forward so earlier it was a little bit slow right now I’m going to do
a little bit faster okay. So take a look at the power comes from my body. You see that? So then if you can feel the power come from your body next level just use your balance to hit the ball because body too much movement it’s too slow you want faster so
you’re going to use your balance. Okay let’s go, like this So quick back. So just use your balance. Okay this is body transfer, balance transfer this is very important for your power. I think after you practice
for awhile it should be okay.

  5. Hi sir, my coach says that whenever I loop an underspin serve, it goes down to the net. My movements are correct but why does it go down the net? Pls answer many thanks. 🙂

  6. Hello, I have a friend that whenever I pull a ball he cuts and also when I cut it pulls. Can you help me to use a technique to win?

  7. By pull I assume you mean topspinning the ball? It all comes down to pressure. You need to think about creating more variation so that it's harder for him to predict what is happening.


    Small things like changing the amount of speed and spin you put on the ball, making it hard for him to keep rhythm and of course placement all make it difficult for him to get to the ball or keep balance.

  8. Thank you for the lessons. I love your method and you are a really good coach. Subscribed <3

  9. can coach li make an viedo on tt serve please

  10. Grip keeps slipping when playing..tried wearing wrist bands, but that doesn't help much. Any suggestions.

  11. Hello. I wonder if you could help me with my problem. It is connected with my backhand. When I play I stretch my arm forward as you said in one of your videos. But when I go this I eighter go too low and the ball hits the net or even my side or I hit it too hard and the ball goes of the the table. Could you please help me. Thanks in advance.

    Best wishes,

  12. Make sure you're hitting the ball close to your body, you don't want to be 'reaching' too far out to hit the ball. If your arm is extended too much on ball contact sometimes it can be too tense. Also make sure your body is low and the end of your stroke finishes a little higher than the start of your stroke, generating a bit of topspin will help get the ball over the net. Usually if the ball is going off the end you may be swinging too big, standing up too tall or your bat angle may be too open.

  13. Hi Im just 12 but i need some help when i smash in forehand i dont Always hit the table and costs me the game .My trainer sais that i have my legs like sticks i that why?

  14. Try and take a little more time with it and not hit it as hard for now, just make certain that the ball will hit the table while of course doing the best you can to make it difficult for your opponent to return it. If you find you're always out of position your footwork may need to improve or you may just have to choose a more appropriate (safer) shot to keep the ball in play.

  15. What is the rubber that you use?

  16. Probably uses dhs/tenergy (butterfly) rubber

  17. Hi again 😀 Ever since I started playing table tennis regulary I am playin gwith the same opponent (my friend). And he have really good forehand. I am trying to make it hard for him to play forehand but it is very very hard. Every time he make a heavy smash he makes the ball goo on my right side and I can never return his smash with forehand and if I succeed in positioning myself to return it with backhand the ball not always goes on the table. How can I counter him and make it hard for him ?

  18. Nikola, eto otjem lechko ot igrat jewo. U newo jest garoshoi Forehand? Prosto igrai jewo na backhand. Poproboi jemu tak zdelat, sjhto jemu predetsa ispolzowat backhand. 😉 A jesli on napodaiet na prawoi storonu, prosto zakroj swoiu raketku Nikola, this is very easy. Just try to get the advantage, by playing him on backhand. If he plays forehand on right side, then just close your bat angle a bit, so you can block it. Try to close it the way, that it will go right.

  19. i'm just a beginner, now I know the forehand, I will fallow your advice!!! T.Y.

  20. Please stop teaching, your technique is wrong! Your body has to go forward, not to the left!!!

  21. hello. my problem is , i dont understand which shot should i hit to overcome the backspin chop. Can you suggest me a shpt to overcome this problem

  22. Coach Can u Clear my doubt about ,is their a difference between forehand loop and forehand topspin ,if their is any any kind of difference please tell me

  23. Coach, about the forehand power, whenever i hit the ball at the same time, my lower body goes back and my upper body goes front, its like my body is automatically avoiding the ball, what can i do to make it stop?

  24. thank  u very much

  25. dani andreew After coaching now for 40 years all i can say to your comment about him moving to his left instead of foreward is you have it right.YES YES YES YES

  26. Yes! No matter which way, as long as there is a good effect on the good

  27. My forehand ball goes in the net or in the air… It doesn't touch the table… What am i doing wrong?

  28. Excellent. I did wrong all my life :p

  29. i find i sometimes i change grip between the forehand and back hand . i hold the bat shakehand style. i tend to like to extend my finger 45• degrees up the blade. i actually like holding like that but find my play between backhand and forehand suffers however i believe if i could somehow stick my finger permanently so it doesnt move i could learn quite quickly how to do a backhand holding the bat like this. could i superglue or stick a small wooden block there so my finger rests in place. what do you think about this? i notice that timo boll and waldner occasionally have their finger at around the same degree as me and it doesnt seem to hinder their play. Should they be doing this is this ok? Also any other proffessionals play with their finger extended further up the bat? thankyou. (sorry if there are spelling mistakes and punctuation mistakes as these are the result of me misplacing my eye glasses .thanks

  38. Hi. You are very difficult to Fan Zhendong footwork

  39. To the confused little kids thinking that he is moving his body left. First of all, knowing some physics really helps to understand TT principles, wow. Let's continue.
    It is because of the angle this clip had shot. If you hold your one leg steady while the other leg and the body turn towards the steady leg, you body is moving forward when the ball contacts. If you turn that steady leg, you will be just rotating around your own vertical axis. Basic superposition. You can create variety by changing the rotation speed, bat angle, arm trajectory etc… When you learn more about angular momentum, you will understand more things like why is the other arm kept close to the body.
