No worries, dual700!

You're welcome, balldance. I'll add those to the list. The second one you linked with the Chinese guy was actually the one I was talking about in my previous post here :)

I might get to that one earlier because I found it quite interesting too.

@mykonos96
That's not in Japanese and isn't a WRM video, but the gist of it was the guy had the incorrect weight transfer. He was going from left to right leg. He was told do the opposite and go from right to left leg. That would allow him to cover his forehand easier since after the backhand he's already got his weight on the left leg, allowing him to push off that leg to take a step with his right leg and transfer the weight directly.

When Wakamiya Misako (former world rank 24, part of Japan's 2015 World Table Tennis team) came to the place I get coaching, she also mentioned about that for close to the table footwork. I've always had it the opposite direction, which my coach said is okay when you've taken a step back since you have time and you can get more power.

The video also mentioned being more light on your feet, which is what they were doing at the end with the shadow practice.

If you'd like a proper translation, maybe someone else can take a look at it. My Chinese is okay, but I can't actually check words up in a dictionary like I can with Japanese ha.

Great video. Thank you so much, mickd. There are so many interesting tutorials in Japanese, normally I try to guess the content, but sometimes it's impossible.

Can you do this one when you have time? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGe2Mi8-n2g
I know it takes a lot of time so you don't need to translate everything, just the main tips are great enough. I'm interested in what they say about the contact points (base and tip of racket).

and this one as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4mtAFDj54I

Okay, the video is live! I probably should have gone over it again. There is at least one grammatical error. Sorry about that. Let me know if anything doesn't make sense. Also, you can really tell this guy is a teacher because the way he talks is just so nice and clear. There were quite a few parts where I couldn't really figure out what Guccy was saying.

Okay, I fixed and finished it. I did the tutorial on the tomahawk serve (I don't know if there's a different term for the one where you squat down as you're doing it, but I just called it tomahawk).

And yeah, shinchan, if you're going to work on any, let me know which so we don't accidentally do the same ones :)

I'll update after WRM approves the subtitles. If they haven't in a few days, I'll email them like before!

Thank you. I'll have another one finished soon. I was actually working on it for the last 2 hours, and while switching between the dictionary and the YouTube subtitle editor, I accidentally clicked the cross on the tab T_T. You'd think it'll be okay because YouTube auto-saves as you type, but for some reason all the timings are now completely off..

If you're willing to help, of course you're welcome, shinchan! I'm just translating the videos on the WRM channel. If you go to any video (maybe one of the ones that others would like translated), and click on the Settings button on the bottom right of the video, then go to Subtitles, you can add your own. It'll take you to YouTube's built in subtitle editor. Once you finish adding them all and timing it, just press submit and wait for WRM to approve it.

Thanks for thinking about us Mick, 
There are some existencial things more important than translating videos for TTComUnity, Work and money income is one of those, we understand that and we can wait patiently. When you post new translation it will be a happy event for us, meantime, Good luck, and get your current work problems resolved for good.

Hey, Mickd. Are you doing any more translations?  Do you have links for any that were completed and published?  I've watched the BH serve one several times and thanks a lot for that one.  And the FH loop one was interesting, although not as useful to me.  But it seemed like you were going to do more.

Yeah, imagine being lucky enough to have him as their school table tennis club teacher haha.

You're welcome, beeray1. More to come in time!!

Some of my students loved that serve. When they got it right, it was nearly impossible to return safely. I had to attack all long ones because if I was passive, the ball would at best pop for them to attack and at worse not even hit the table ha. Theirs were nowhere as tricky as that guy's, though. They also couldn't control length and placement well.

I had a look through the video and it actually looks relatively easy to subtitle. Very little I'll need to confirm or look up.

Hey, sorry. I've been busier than I thought I would be (graduation season) so hopefully I can get back to it soon. At worst, I'll be able to get some done during the spring break.

@dual700 Sure, I'll add it to the list. I like how that guy is also a teacher. Being able to play at that level while working as a teacher is extremely impressive, especially with all of the extra overtime hours.

To loop properly? Kinda harsh statement there, don't you think?
Ghuccy is about 2500 - 2600 here, he came to US Open several times, I am sure he can whack you and me like flies lol Big smile

well I know Guchi personally and even beat him his rating is nowhere near that and if it's US table tennis level isn't really as good as i thought. His friend Xia the penholder is much higher level.

You are right, I think he is around 2400s or 2500 max..
In here, Akifumi (2600+) beats him
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31dQASnNjxw
I saw Akifumi several times, he is awesome. I was hoping he would play at LA Open 2018 since he was there, but he didn't Dead

The desceptive BH serve tutorial is the absolute best video I ever watched on the topic:


The only critic is that in the side to side videos, the receiver opens his paddle more to receive topspin than he does to receive underspin but I understand it's for a good teaching cause.

Thanks a lot for the translation, the following tips are pure gold:

-handle points towards the top or server's head during the whole swing 
-the paddle is 1/2 vertical during the whole swing (45 degrees)
-if we contact with the tip of the head it's a topspin, if we contact with the sweet spot or between the sweet spot and the handle, it's a bit random, between slight side underspin and clear side underspin.

Note: the 2 1st tips force the wrist to be hanging loose which forces smoothness, relaxation and encourages the snap at contact.

I am sure it's a bit more complicated that that but it's enough to get a thread to pull from and build a strong bh serve from there, it's simple and correct enough a framework to develop a strong bh serve, thanks again.

That's very cool. Maybe you're underestimating your own skill too much? ;) I do agree with you that 2500-2600 is on the high end, but based on your reply, it seems like you think he'd be a lot less than 2400, too. Hopefully one day he'll come and play in a bunch more tournaments and we'll know for sure ha. I'm only speculating based off his one tournament and other videos I see. So you could very well be right. You've also got the experience of playing him to back it up.

I think his current rating of ~2400 is probably pretty accurate. He lost to a 2700 and a 2500. He won everyone else, with the highest being ~2300. Maybe 2500-2600 is on the high end, though! By the way, when did you get the chance to play him? I'd love to play him, even if I'd just get smashed ha.
[/QUOTE]

Well not really  ratings are not accurate if you haven't played at least 5 rating tournaments imho. Because they have do with best win with worst loss. He could have beaten a 2300 but that doesn't he beats 5 or 10 of them for example.

A good friend of mine is a japanese youtuber and did a collaboration with WRM so I played both Xia and Guchi. I also invited some friends over so they played them aswell.

Do they have a punch serve tutorial on their channel? If so idI love that one too.

That's the really long video I added to mickd's list haha... For FH pendulum I suspect the principles are the same, ie serve backspin and topspin using the same 45 deg blade angle and only varying the direction of the wrist movement which is easily disguised by fake motions in the arm.

Here's another service video for the hook serve to add to your list ;) 


Pushing against topspin serves

How to add extreme spin to pushes?

Hey, no problem! I'll have a look at those and maybe eventually get to them all haha. One is super long so I'm not looking forward to that. Gucchy looks so young back then with long hair. The last one has Japanese subtitles, which will be a HUGE help.

As for my blade, I'm using Hurricane Long 3. I've been using it for 2 years now.
