hi everyone In Turkey, an amateur named Yavuz sent me a video. Yavuz is very tall at 196cm. He started playing table tennis in 2011 in a small city in Turkey, which he says is moderate. He was taking a table tennis lesson, and he said that the video I uploaded on YouTube was helpful, and it would be helpful if he could analyze his video. Yavuz is 38 years old and plays table tennis for 2-3 hours a week. Let’s analyze the forehand of Yavuz. Compared to the time when Yavuz players play table tennis for 2 to 3 hours a week, it is a good palyer I edit the worst shot of Yavuz. Yavuz uses his arm to position the racket when the first ball comes into his body. He needs to change this first. Even if the ball comes to you, you shouldn’t pull your arm out to react. You have to move your feet to react. If your opponent throws the ball, your feet react first to catch the ball, but Yavuz has a problem because his arms react first to catch the ball. Yavuz turns his shoulders out of the arms and upper body of the ball on the right side, so his hips fall back. In other words, Abouz doesn’t start by pushing his backswing with his left foot and reacts with his arms and upper body, so he can’t balance. Yavuz shows a lot of this. It is a video that I think he is playing well, but you can see from the above video, but Yavuz reacts by pulling back the arm and upper body when the ball comes from the beginning. Yavuz is good at hitting the ball when it comes out of his arms, but if the ball just goes to the right, he’ll be quick to follow. When the ball comes in, the foot reacts first and must start the backswing, but it can’t maintain balance because it moves from the arms and upper body. Since the hitting starts with the arms and the upper body, not the feet, the balance is inevitable. Let’s look at the forehand of Ma Long. When Ma Long hits with his forehand, his feet react first.
He pushes the ball that comes into him with his left foot and backswings, with the right foot turning to the right. The rotated force of the foot causes the calf, thighs, and hips to rotate and strike. The upper body follows the lead of the lower body, accumulating additional force and generating additional rotated force. The arm follows the body. Swing order is very important in hitting. If the order is twisted, the balance will collapse and the ground force will not be used effectively. In order for the lower body force to be properly transferred to the upper body, it is necessary to react from the foot when backswing. The same is true of forward swing. You have to react first with your feet to catch the balance and to make the strike stable and strong. I compared Yavuz’s swing to Ma Long. I compared Yavuz’s swing to Ma Long. Ma Long pushes with her left foot during the backswing, so the upper body does not move from side to side and rotates on the spot. The rotation of the feet is done very accurately and the force is transmitted accurately so that the upper body does not shake back and forth, left and right. On the other hand, Yavuz’s body shakes a lot because he pulls his arms and shoulders back first. Also, Ma Long’s right shoulder will not open first when he does the backswing, but Yavuz’s will open first. At the end of the backswing, Abouz has an excessively open right shoulder, while Ma Long does not have much open right shoulder. It’s the difference between doing a backswing from your feet or from your arms or upper body. At the end of the backswing, Ma Long is centered exactly on the right and right calf, but Yavuz is not well centered. You must be well centered at the end of the backswing to make a forward swing by pushing your right foot. The direction of back swing rotation and forward swing rotation is different. The rotation direction must be changed during the forward swing, which must be well centered at the end of the backswing. That way, you can wait for the ball at the end of the backswing and swing with your right foot. At the end of the backswing, Yavuz’s shoulders are pressed to align the spine lines, while Ma Long’s shoulders are not pressed to align the spine lines. Since Ma Long holds the center at the end of the back swing, the lower body and upper body rotate by pushing with his right foot, but since Yavuz backswinged his arms and upper body first, so the forward swing also has to swing from the upper body and arms. The arms swing should follow the swings of the lower body and upper body. The arm swings ahead and pushes the ground with the right foot late. At the moment of impact, Ma Long pulls the ball towards you and hits it, but Yavuz’s hitting point is a bit off his body. This is because the forward swing didn’t start with the right foot. In follow through, Ma Long keeps the center with his left and left legs, while Yavuz can’t keep his center and can’t backswing while pushing his left foot in the next swing. Yavuz can’t center on the backswing and follow through end because fasten the first button wrongly in his basic position. I analyzed Yavuz’s forehand swing and the foot movement was too big. As his skills improve, his foot movements should be simpler, and I think there may be a reason for the reverse swing order. table tennis strikes when the ball comes in, the foot must react first. Keep your upper body and arms in the correct position and position and follow the lower body leads. But when the ball comes in, the feet don’t react first, but the arms and upper body react. To fix Yavuz’s forehand hit, he’ll need to fix this first. When the ball flies, the upper body and arms do not react, but move the lower body to practice catching the ball. You need to make corrections from this to lay the groundwork for the hitting The first thing to worry about when modifying the hitting mechanism is the swing order. When you see professional players hitting the ball, the feet react first if they see the ball flying. The first thing Yavuz needs to fix is that he should start his backswing by pushing his left foot, whether the ball is flying towards or away from the body. Start your backswing with your left foot and let your upper body relax and lean forward with your hip joint. The arm should follow the upper body turn. I want you to modify this first and compare it to the hitting analysis of the players I posted. Thank Yavuz for sharing his video on YouTube. I think this video will help amateurs a little bit. Next time, we will analyze Yavuz’s backhand. thanks for wtaching
