Post subject:  TPB BH to FH and/or RPB BH Transition

I'm having some kind of a problem when doing the TPB to FH/RPB transition, my backhand finger seems to always slip following a tpb grip.

You guys have any tip as how to correct this problem?

Caveat: I am not a full time penholder and only play for fun (and badly). I started out as a JPEN Player. But I will tell you what my old coach told me.

Coach suggested that I adopt a grip and keep my finger positions on the back of the blade in the same place on the back of the blade no matter FH or BH (TBH). On the backhand side, you role the bat over your fingers, but the tips of your fingers remain in the same position. Don't slide you fingers up to close the bat, use your fingers and wrist to create the angle.

Yoo Nam Kyu demonstrates that one should do a "swim" motion with the bat back to neutral position when doing BHs. That way, whenever you need to suddenly go to the FH, you are in an efficient position to do so. I find that most of the time when my fingers slip, it's because I am not back to neutral and I have to suddenly change to BH.

I posted this on another site recently, but coincidentally it's applicable here. Watch YNK demonstrate the backhand stroke and swim motion recovery I mentioned. He even exaggerates it for effect. Jump to 2:34 in the video.

Yep. I get how hard it is because of the lack of coaching and support with info. Youtube YNK, Kim Taek Soo, and Rye Min Seung. They all have tutorials on there with backhand grip specifics. But the YNK vid is the only one that specifically addresses the transition from BH to FH.

And..I have no idea what he's saying either. If you have a Korean friend, have him translate. (And share with us!). :rock:
