I believe it is a complex discussion of the merits of the convex vs the concave loop. It also talks about how the Japanese are using a concave technique to counter the Chinese convex technique since adding the convex function to the concave function produces a linear function and delivers the ball in the shortest straight line direction.

concave is like ")"?

Sorry. My reply was a joke related to an old, long running, controversial thread on concave vs convex looping which the graphics on this video brought to mind.

My real guess is that it is discussing standard looping technique vs a disguised inside-out looping technique hit down the line. It shows the late laying back of the wrist to change the direction from cross-court to down the line. It also shows how the shoulders open early, but the arm lags behind making it look crosscourt while allowing the ball to still be hit down the line. Will see if the real translation is anywhere near my guess.

The reason Guo Yunpeng picked Mizutani was posted in the description. In short, Mizutani's chicken-wing loop is highly consistent and is a very good model for amateurs to follow. His shot quality may not be spectacular, but his trajectories and variations are plentiful.

Mirroring left-handed players is a rather common practice in Chinese tutorials. Left-handed? No problem. You'll be all "right."

Either way, here is the perfect example showcasing the full extent of the stroke.
