I am always amazed by these para players (especially those in wheelchair) as to how they have (to learn) to play probably the fastest sport there is.  Do you think they would be better coaches in ceratin aspects like anticipation and positioning etc ?

I also find players especially women (since I am attracted to them) who are close to full-figured so hot. I was just watching this video of Barbara Balazova at Czech Open OMG she has such a hot body. So do many of these women like Yadira Silva, Madurikha Patkar, Petrissa Solja etc. They are not slim but they move so well enough to control the table. I was visiting the WVC 2018 with my grandfather who played and I was most drawn to the 40-45 age group women winner, lefty from Hungary (forgot her name) . How can I meet all these women ?

Fan Zhendong is also so sexy . Andy Scott may think he is but only so so. Larry (I mean Heavy Spin not the other one though he is trying) is ok. Tahl definitely NOT. He should go back to hanging out with those desi guys from Pakistan & Guyana

This is definitely true. You can learn a lot from watching or talking to the para players. Even footwork you can learn from those para players with limited footwork though wheelchair players are most amazing

I would think they would not like to be Identified as any different ability wise as coaches from anyone else.
The Older I get, The better I was.

Well that was not meant as an insult but as statement of fact, if not taken as a compliment

wheelchair table tennis is a totally different game. It requires a lot of strategy. I think wheelchair players would be better coaches for other wheelchair players. As for standing para players, it's different aswell but they wouldn't neccessarily make better coaches either.

EXACTLY my point. They can teach these skills to non-para players who are not very mobile

Wrong again. They can teach these skills to non-para players who are not very mobile and even top very mobiles a sto what to do for example when they are caught close to the table & how to anticipate  / position themselves etc

Simply because you can't compare playing standing and in a wheelchair.

Most standing para players are taught to move to their best of their ability and keep pushing the limits. There is no general solution or trick to cover up lack of mobility, each succesfull para player does this in his own way.

And  who else better than para players to teach non-para players how each of them do it ?
Why do you seem to have so much resistance to learn from para players ? Only reason I can think is that that you believe you are better than them simply because you are a non-para player. 
We can go in circles about this issue till cows come home if you like.

Not to worry. BAAL will be banning me soon anyway. Even though you engaged in name-calling (by calling me an idiot) which is violation of forum rules (without addressing the issue) , I will be the one who will be banned.
There seems to be no end in sight for the comic routines of BAAL & his sidekicks in this forum
