Not getting kicked out of the house is really key here! Every table tennis play is always on a knife's edge, so it's great to get through these pivotal moments.

I actually don't care about hitting the ball and I also don't care that much about the spin factor. I see the device as a bridge between shadow swinging and training on the table. For me, the device is just a way to learn LTT79 & 80.

LTT81 and DTT15 are now available on ttEDGE.com

LTT81 is about using your hips on the backhand counter hit. I'd say it's a 9/10 important concept and it's one of the difference between elite and club players.

DTT15 is an extremely popular exercise among elite players.

Looks like TTEdge members got so excited with the new videos so that they brought the website down.

The website is working fine and there has been no crashes. Might be your internet or try another browser.

Assumed it was because I was in Nigeria but seems likely that a major router that is usually connecting outsiders to Australia is down.

I'd agree with that. Works in Oz with chrome but not Puffin as that is domiciled in Singapore. Overseas users may have problems.

I just used a VPN to the States and it's unreachable there too.

For everyone who isn't living in Australia, there has never been a better time to move here. Spring is on the way, ttEDGE videos are readily available and we aren't very close to North Korea.

Don't think.of it as trying to graze the ball. Think of it more as trying to set your stroke trajectory to make the ball rotate.


This refers to the Huieson contraption?

Great video on the hips and the counter hit backhand. I assume you do the same but a much smaller motion for a backhand block??

Yup - looks exactly like your picture.

I realize this is now the LTT series thread and not really the ETTS series any more, but I have a video update to ETTS06, serve recovery. My recovery is still crap. My problems with balance and third ball consistency all start with this. The video is two points from a tournament yesterday. I actually won this match 3 nil and was pretty psyched about it, but on video good Lord, I'm completely side-on to the table when the serve lands on my opponent's side. I've only been working on this five days a week for two effing years and I still don't turn my hips into the serve at all. Maybe that missing hip rotation is the link between this topic and the recent LTT vids.

It's a hard knock life for us...

It's just fear of missing some serves while I adapt to a different motion.

Fear is the enemy. We think it is bad technique, but it is fear.

Using your hips on serves is coming up.

You were a bit side-on, but that's not so bad if you intended to play a forehand from anywhere.

I want ttEDGE to be more about member ETTS however there's still a lot of necessary LTT content.

Yes. If anyone can see you do it, you've probably gone too far. It may just feel like a tightening of your stomach muscles on the forward swing. A punch block will be more pronounced.
