Beginners are afraid of rotation, while masters play on rhythm and position. I think everyone has experienced this. But what is "rhythm"? How to control invisible rhythm?
Xinzi collected 7 techniques and 5 methods, let me tell you~
1. Take short strokes
A short swing is not only about controlling landing point to avoid opponent's first attack, but also about changing rhythm.
When using short swing technique, time to return ball is reduced, distance to return is shortened, and opponent does not have opportunity and space to seize position and hit ball. opponent can only use rubbing.
The side with short swing has been set up for a long time. As long as ball you are throwing is slightly off stage, it will start first. Therefore, control and anti-control are very noticeable in a short swing. The phenomenon of a continuous short swing is often seen among masters, and there are also sudden long balls. The goal is to control rhythm. Come and create opportunities for yourself to attack.
2. Decreased Block Force and Increased Push Force
These two methods are usually used in a stalemate situation. The goal is to break original kick rhythm by changing ball's return speed to find opportunities for yourself to hit.
Skateboarding is very deceptive. The use of this technology is in itself a rhythm change, and its purpose is also to change strike space and disrupt opponent's strike rhythm.
4. Alternate use of high hanging and forward throw
Especially technique of a high pass, which clearly affects change in rhythm of receiving ball by opponent. At same time, reshaping of running arc in anterior arc (i.e., commonly discussed question of inner arc and outer arc) also greatly upsets balance of original arc space, making batting rhythm in rapid changes in time and space.
5. Throw up and run
Change of rhythm can be started with a serve, such as a high throw serve, which is a typical serve that uses a change of rhythm. We will not discuss technical characteristics of this pitch, but it is enough to see this pitch with changes in time and space influencing change in rhythm.
Another example is a short ball and a long ball with various fast spins, and also an attempt to control initiative of game by changing rhythm from first board.
From meaning of word "切" itself, you can see how this technique changes rhythm. At same time, it also contains meaning of "suddenly", which corresponds to short rub (or Regular rub), when combined with general form of rub, its role in changing rhythm will naturally appear.
7. Point and Select
Pointing and picking are table tennis moves characterized by small movements, quick strikes, skillful power, good camouflage, and surprise, making it difficult to defend against. These technologies also allow you to change rhythm of strike by reducing time of strike and increasing speed of strike.
If you think that many of above methods of rhythm control can only be achieved by high-level players, then method of changing rhythm by changing elements of shot can be achieved by ordinary amateur golfers.
Change rhythm of game by changing landing point
Changing landing point is root cause of changing playing space. When enemy cannot move in time or does not move in place, there will be an obvious gap.
Change rhythm of game with power changes
Adjusting force has an obvious effect on changing rhythm.
I suggest that under normal circumstances you should focus mostly on medium strength and use all your strength to power when there is a random ball or when you have lost your center of gravity. . In fact, as long as we can regulate force of hitting ball well, use force skillfully, and blend force seamlessly with landing point, we can also achieve the desired effect.
Change pace of game by changing speed
Three elements are often spoken of: speed, power and spin. The speed factor depends not only on power, but also on speed. What is speed? Speed refers to distance traveled per unit of time. Therefore, increasing speed of movement will speed up rhythm.
Change rhythm of game by changing arc
Increasing curvature of arc can increase time ball travels in air. On contrary, it can save time. The length of arc can also increase or decrease time ball travels in air. , The combination of arc and landing point can change rhythm of ball in space and time.
Change rhythm of game by changing rotation
The emphasis should be on preventing other person from adapting to your rotation. For example, if opponent can drag out spin, you can give it up or not, but you should pay attention to landing point and height of arc, and generally leave it up to opponent.
If your opponent's ability to pull and hit ball is strong, you can increase ball's spin. In short, don't force your opponent to adapt to your spin. The same is true for pulling ball: if you can't go forward, you can go to cross, and if you can't pull ball, you can go to assault. If you can't beat others in a stalemate, try to control ball as much as possible and use rubbing tactics.
It's same with serve. The change of rotation should be strengthened. If level is same, then ball that opponent is not used to is generally served less, and will be very effective if it is carried out at a critical moment.
