welp, after a long hiatus, it seems in finally back to playing in the nyc area!

https://youtu.be/r5RtbKgOWFo
looping with yang
concentrated on my swing at first to make sure I'm looping, allowing the ball to drop a bit, around 7:14, yang noticed I took the ball low and commented I should take the ball at the highest point and with more forward motion with lower stance. I obliged thereafter
https://youtu.be/lNPi_78FHFU
fh looping vs brad block, keeping in mind what yang said
one min in brad suggests three point fh drill
3:20 in suggests I can use my backhand on the backhand corner
6:25 counter looping
11:55 backhand
17:32 service drill, short service, push short, open play
21:55 fh flip service
https://youtu.be/AU5EXKo_3L0
aerial serve, Brad touch short, open play
1:00 brad suggests to look at where on the table you want the serve to land, then when you're ready you serve take one more second for an extra breath and you'll never miss
2:50 talking about grip pressure upon execution of flip
7:00 brad pushes long for aerial's fh loop
9:30 brad chopping
13:00 brad chop block
brad match
https://youtu.be/a-79x8Kjh_w
match starts at 2:00

so when I was looping with yang, I tried to emphasize the brush but he pointed out I was waiting too long to contact the ball and that the ball has no "ferocity" when looping like that. I can see his point but I was also trying to emphasize my stroke more as sometimes I don't swing on my fh.

as far as training with brad, he gave a lot of good suggestions. I will say that my match game still feels a lot worse than my practicing game. alas

aerial,

Long time no see. You seem to have made some changes to your forehand technique (elbow closer to your body, finishing across the center line below head height, bent elbow on looping). MAybe they were there before and I just didn't notice (you are still raising the elbow on the forehand loop). I am not a fan of them but if they work for you, so be it. The stroke you use on the counterloop most of the time is much better and is the stroke you should learn to use close to the table.

Taking the ball early is neither here nor there. Some people make a big deal out of it but to me, it is probably most important when counterlooping off the bounce. It is far more important to hit the ball when your power is highest, which is usually while your body is rotating and your racket is whipping into the ball during your forearm snap. If this happens after the peak of the bounce, so be it, the alternative is to take the ball with less racket head speed in front of your body and produce a weaker ball, which is okay if the incoming ball has power, but is not if you intend to generate power. So with all due respect, the lack of ferocity has absolutely nothing to do with how long you are waiting and much more to do with how fast you are swinging unless you are trying to mostly borrow the power of the incoming ball.

When doing those drills, like counterlooping etc., don't let the inconsistency of your opponent or training partner take you out of your drill discipline. Use the same stroke EVERY single time. Even if you miss the ball 10 feet off the table. The reason is this: if you see the incoming ball and swing, use the same technique, and see how badly the outgoing ball misses, you have a much better idea of the swing changes you need to make to use the same technique to put the ball on the table. When you change technique, you don't get that information. A huge part of table tennis is being able to adapt to or even sometimes overpower the opponent's incoming spin or lack of it. If you change technique without a good reason, you will not master your strokes. That's why I generally try to get people to use one clean swing for looping as much as possible and then teach them how to enlarge it or shrink it depending on the speed of the incoming ball. Then the rest is about their contact point and swing plane based on how they read the incoming ball and what kind of outgoing ball they intend to produce.

Here is my favorite forehand loop:



Brad has amazing touch but imperfect technique on his blocks. IT is interesting to see him looping now, maybe his combination of that and his amazing touch is responsible for his large leap in rating?

Good to see you back - good luck with your game.

ah, I can always count on you NL to chime in with your infinite wisdom... :P

truth be told, when i counterloop, it feels like the best stroke, but when I am closer to the table I feel rushed and end up compacting it subconsciously i think. in my mind's eye i try to loop how i counterloop but... alas...

side note, i feel like FZD's backswing versus a blocked ball is pretty low... bordering looping a backspin balls' backswing depth, thoughts?

double side note... for some reason I've had to change my password twice for this forum... has anyone else had any issues? dunno what the deal is with my account getting compromised :^)

It took me a month of practice to more consistently take the ball away from my body. I used to do it away from the table but felt it was unnatural close to table. But a high level coach told me to fix it and I fixed it. The rewards were pretty great as I could loop with more leverage. Once you get the arm to straighten out, just close the racket or come round the side of the ball more while swinging straight to the forehead until the ball stays on the table. Then you will have s loop like Xu Xin.

His stance is extremely low and his body leans forward so his swing plane is actually far more horizontal than yours or mine. He comes up a little before swinging forward and his low stance enables him to keep the ball low. If he was looping a backspin ball, he would go round the ball and come up a bit more.
