Ping Ping Doctor Episode 28: Quickly learn how to play on left
Today, let's take a look at this golfer's question in Pingpong.com questions area:
I just started learning how to move ball to left with a horizontal grip. How many movements are appropriate in process of training? Some people say that movements should be big first and then smaller when you get used to it; others say that size of movements does not matter, as long as structure of movements is correct. For amateurs, when they are just starting to learn how to play, should movements be more or less?
First, action should be small first, then large
In Table Tennis Training for Everyone, we talked about pushing and pushing. My point is that when learning to throw ball from left, movements should be small at first, and then gradually increase movements after gaining a sense of ball, and then emphasize integrity and extension of movements.
If movement is too great, shape of racquet is easy to change and arc difficult to control.
Second, press first and then dial horizontally
1. Push Action Basics
The action of pressing and dialing is very similar to pressing with left hand and locking grip on pen. It doesn't require action to complete, and it's only half action. It is enough to push ball back and forth. This has advantage of not having to take into account shape of board, angle change or rotation of forearm, but simply ensures stability of elbow joint and pushes ball back and forth.
The learning method is very simple when you do push and pull. The shape of racket remains unchanged for about 80 degrees, and then elbow joint supports forearm like a piston, first close to body, and then pushing it forward. Only need to take into account front and back forces, shape of racket remains almost unchanged around 80 degrees, and then hit ball on stage first through control.
2. The push set is a horizontal transition technology
It must be emphasized that this training method is not a single technique, it is incorrect to understand pushing and transverse waves as two techniques, there is no such technique in table tennis.
While it may feel a bit like pushing a ball when using an anti-loop ball, action should be completed by actually pulling it off (pulling) and adding force. So pushing and pulling is just a transitional technique to get better hold of ball from left. Don't practice pressing and dialing all time while practicing. It's not good to press back and forth to form a dynamic shape, so it's better to coordinate and practice.
Some people have poor coordination in game. If you come up, tell them to turn ball to left 1/4 circle. Almost no one can do it quickly. After half an hour to an hour or so of pushing and pulling, you will be able to play with a coach on more than a dozen boards, and some students may not be able to play on stage after learning the ball left for 5th grade. watch.
(2) Horizontal typing
Teaching table tennis skills goes from simple to complex, from simple to complex. To play, you must first feel ball.
Once you feel ball, you can increase movement a little and then ask for a pushing movement. But send forearm forward a little, rotate it a bit and draw a 1/4 circle. With foundation of push and set, you can quickly understand horizontal set. Training must be carried out in stages, after mastering this method, you can quickly learn how to hit ball on left.
That's all for today's answer. If you have any technical questions about table tennis, you can ask them in questions section of pingpong.com.
