Let’s say that a player only relies on pushing and blocking (no smashes, loops, chops, etc). These are the only two tools in their box, and they don’t play offense. What do you think their max USATT rating would be? In other words, what’s their ceiling?

Rated about 2800 USATT Rating. Most effective pusher ever seen.

That would make him higher rated than Kanak Jha.

Our 15-year (at the time of video) youngster is above 2000, possibly about 2200 usatt equivalent, but IMO not higher yet as I estimate ratings scales.

Wow. Didn’t think 2800 would even be remotely possible for a pusher

What kind of setup does he use? That is crazy impressive. What reflexes. He attacks when he pushes. They’re not passive.

Yeah, this did not look close to 2800 to me. Definitely good though!
