Found this video on Butterfly's official channel. It was quite entertaining to watch.



Their exhibition match was also pretty funny.

The only bit that might be interesting to translate is the tip Jin gives towards the start about the forehand drive. He just mentions that it's important to relax because most people tend to tighten up when trying to hit more powerful balls, but it's the relaxation that gets them the more powerful balls. Only tighten up for impact.

Yeah for sure. Events like that would have been awesome when I was back in school.

This video I also liked a lot. Ueda Jin and 2 others doing a similar thing.

The challenge matches were pretty funny because they were all joking around having a laugh. You can just see it on their faces that they're enjoying it so much.

That said, some of the students that were in the challenge matches were likely 2300+. A few of them had "dan" rankings, which you can only get from qualifying for certain all Japan events.



EDIT: The challenge matches start from 9:53. They only show one or two highlight points per student, though.
