Just figured since I'm locked down and will probably be making quite a few of these I would put them all in one place. Here's today's video!

PPM: Good effort to stay busy! NJ or NZ?

IMHO, you have built enough 'online equity' to start monetizing via 'online coaching'. After all, at least in NJ, this lockdown could go on for months.

Ask us to send you our videos practicing with a robot (or even of prior games) and offer coaching (stroke correction, footwork correction, game tactics, etc) for a fee about 1/4 of live coaching. There should be a market. Trust me - this is even valuable service for many adults - while they do not mind spending $60 per hour on their kids' coaching, they feel guilty spending that much on their own.

My guess is that you do not need to spend more than 15 min total on watching the video / providing useful feedback, so it shall be helpful.

Will definitely get to this once i'm out of isolation and the club opens again, I can't effectively teach these things without a robot or a training partner :P so it's mostly serve focused initially.

I'm in New Jersey at the moment, 13th day at home and i'm by myself so it's been tough to keep myself occupied. 

It's definitely something I could look into and a great suggestion. If this does go on for a while then I will certainly have plenty of spare time before I move on to my next big project, so I will be working on trying to deliver as much coaching content as I can.

Noted, I will probably put together a video on service placement and talk about depth, placement and direction. Will keep this in mind and hopefully get on to that in the next few vids!

Damn.... but I think you could probably still talk about it and show some movements? Tips would be quite useful imo. Especially the contact movements. My practice partner has an amazing flick on both sides which he varies the type of contact, all producing quite different spins and speed which really throws me off (some even have backspin and some strange sidespin on them, yuck!) 

For me serves are the strongest part of my game by far and I can pretty much serve almost every single FH serve in existence...

Thanks a lot for this one. My standard backspin serve always had a lot of sidespin too, and it was because I was doing it like how you mentioned to do the sidespin here. I've been focusing on changing it to a pure (or closer to pure) backspin serve, which is actually how you've mentioned it.

The new one that I enjoyed hearing about is the topspin variation. Now I know why every now and then I would intend to serve my side-underspin serve. My opponent pushes it and it just pops out or really high for me to smash for a winner. The look on my opponent's face was to be honest just as confused as me haha. Now I know I was probably tightening my racket towards my body instead.

Yes fortunately it's too late for most people to adapt to be aggressive once it bounces, has been very useful for me in matches :)

Actually I would say 80% of developing and intermediate players cannot serve a good backspin variation of it, so I usually prepare to flick or loop when I see people winding up for it.

Hah, yes it's always better when you can throw out those serve variations intentionally instead of by accident ;) hopefully this helps you be able to do that!

I actually serve a very heavy sidebackspin variant of it, and without fail people see my motion and think "sidetopspin 80% of the time" and just dump it straight into the net lol... I'm having trouble generating very heavy sidetopspin without it being too obvious tho, I think you definitely served some very heavy sidetopspin in your video and it definitely looked like it could be easily disguised with my sidebackspin movement. Your wrist movement is still up to down from the receivers point of  used. I used to serve the side topspin with a down to up wrist movement like a reverse pendulum movement, but that seems to be quite easily detected haha, I've since switched back to using the forearm pronation method of serving sidetopspin which is better with deception, I think you're also using the same method...

The weird thing is I can disguise the spin well and I know how it works, but I still eat this serve for breakfast (my training partner serves a really wicked version of it too)

Tbh I feel like the hardest part of the hook serve is actually keeping it short. It just doesn't offer the same amount of length control compared to a reverse pendulum.

Yea it's so commonly topspin that any player who has a good deceptive backspin variation usually does well. 

I find this serve relentlessly hard to keep short, I have to brush the ball quite soft which is not really ideal at all. I usually just go for broke and go half long and get as much kick as I can :D

Haha yeah you almost trade length control for deception with the hook serve... But with more spin you just win more direct points to be honest so it more than compensates...

I haven't watched all the videos yet. I'm doing them slowly. But I just wanted to mention that the box analogy in the simple backspin serve video really helped me.

For my level, I think my serves are really effective for achieving what I'm after. But they've always sucked. Sucked in the sense that if you just isolate the serve by itself, there's nothing special about it.

I've also been trying to reach a higher level, and my current serves just don't cut it whenever I play against the better members of my local club.

I've been thinking about rebuilding my serves and these videos are helping a lot. Keep them up.

There is so much to say about the mindset while serving, the 3rd ball killer instinct can make the difference even with a weak serve. I know that I too often do a great serve (thanks to those buckets of serves in my basement) but then I stay out and the rally really starts with the serve return. I need to commit more to the 3rd ball and be more aggressive with it but there is a caveat: If I do a GREAT serve and it comes back, it's a great return just like my serve: higher than my general level. 

So here is my observation: mickd is right because he has serves that integrate well with the rest of his game, there is harmony and everything improves together. 

Having great serves is great if we can back them up with a 3rd ball and the rest of same level, all on par with the serve quality. If that is not happening, great serves are an overkill that will weigh on our mental balance. The satisfaction of an ace followed the next point by a 4th ball kill counter loop is classical a scenario in the game of a player who allocated too much time to serves compared to other strokes.

Same here, my serves are way above the rest of the game that I'm not actually dealing with the returns well against good receivers. 

But the idea is not to drop down the serving level, but to elevate the rest of my game to catch up Big smile

Yes, I'm really itching to play... I've in fact have almost completely overhauled my backhand topspin (through huge amounts of shadowing) to a superior movement, can't wait to test it out with real opponents! That and the FH flick which I was beginning to get a hang off before the virus incident...

Yes, for a lefty that is often the most effective serve, the short sidetop serve to the FH... I would definitely flick it most of the time to your BH, but there are other variations like the sideswipe to go down the line...also it's definitely possible to push a sidetopspin serve using the chopblock movement...I've seen players able to push that serve short lol...

Also very true haha. Here's another for today:



Yes, for a lefty that is often the most effective serve, the short sidetop serve to the FH... I would definitely flick it most of the time to your BH, but there are other variations like the sideswipe to go down the line...also it's definitely possible to push a sidetopspin serve using the chopblock movement...I've seen players able to push that serve short lol...

I think that response kinda misses the whole point of the video.

Nobody has ever pushed that serve short and gotten away with it unless I have been asleep at the wheel :P

The general idea is that people are welcome to try and return the serve in other ways than how I expect them to return it, but it will require a much higher degree of skill and a lot more risk on their part. If I come across a rare individual who can short push my topspin serve then I will change to something else. The other 1000 players I meet I can use this :P

Yeah agree with this... I do find that a lot of lefties abuse this serve to the max, even at the pro level! 
Im finding that the sideswipe is super underutilized, not sure why...it is quite an effective way to receive this serve!

I think this is an important area, especially for players aiming to break 2000 - it can make a significant difference in matches.

It seems a lot more effective in the video than it should be lol... but definitely a very good strategy when you have a good block and counterattack game. To infuriate your opponent even farther you could vary the spin in the long pushes, it can be sidespin loaded, or no spin (bumped back), or heavy backspin all with slightly different feeling  in the contact and watch as the mistakes start happening LOL

It's one of those things you can add a little work to and it can make a big impact in matches at the club and local tournament level, that's for sure! :)

It's common for a lot of table tennis players, but goes unnoticed. A lot of it comes down to muscle imbalances in the core and lower back and the hips have to bear a lot of the pressure from posture adjustments etc. My hip flexors are in really bad shape from neglecting them for years so I have an anterior pelvic tilt and my ham strings are really tight. Nightmare overall haha trying my best to fix it.
