I like this advice as well, but maybe of a different reason.  I think it's so true, bc most of the error on return is due to being too hurry.

1) You must stay on your toes and move.

2) Hit from the hips.

3) Make spin.

4) The body is relaxed until the moment of contact.  Hold your breadth just before striking.

5) Use your fingers at the moment of contact.

6) The stroke is short, forward, and accelerate through the ball.

 Try to get your  racket on the ball, every time, never let it just pass, without an effort  Always play to a location on the table, makes you think and react faster  with more accuracy.Works for me up to today.

lol one of the coaches in our area keeps telling every one of his students "Put your racket in front of the ball!" Believe it or not, that's actually not so easy to do!

Having shared the tips I got from APW, I thought I could share my own best tip as well, which is:

-Play with in your level!

To many amateurs look at the pro's and tries to copy their game, with out their amount of practice. The result is that they give away a lot of cheap points by missing their own shots. Sure, it is spectacular when the shot goes on, but a ball pushed in the net is as valuable as a ball blasted past your opponent.

don't have my coach here any more.... but he would say-
- run 10 miles every day and shed those pounds.

but i really found the "most important skill in table tennis" by pingskills... really one of the things that changed by game and confidence. it was 
- "learn to hit the ball perpendicular to the blade" (not that you have to do it all the time)

Try to put 100% effort in every shot. Service return or defensive shots should not be made to keep the ball in play, but for winning the point. Always put max power, speed on your shots. Think with your feets. Wait for the ball. Do not make a cut (return) on the top of the bouce, make it much earlier. Only practise if you feel very very good both psy and ment.

1. Get fit (situps,pushups,squats - be able to do a very competent amount), table tennis IS a sport :)
2. Relax - connect with your inner zen!
3. do NOT think with your arm - well at least that's the most problematic for those who do not receive proper coaching
4. Never give up, never sandbag, and ALWAYS have fun... that's why we play this :) - Lol, I don't even follow this one that well, gg.

1.  Watch the ball!
2.  Move and then hit.

The funniest thing he ever told me (I don't remember the exact words):
I was asking how he gets so much spin on his serves and how I could do that.  He said it's timing and all in the wrist, you need to jerk off more.

My wife says my next interview I go on I should take a couple shots of vodka before I go in. I don't see why whisky wouldn't work though...I don't drink beer though, too inefficient.

1. Using pushing play style, you can beat lot of good players.
2. Me: Coach, can you teach me service returns, I'm very bad with this? C: It's easy, just topspin everything.
