  1. More! More! More!!

    More of your playing with normal paddles counting 11 points with 2 serves, more ordinary table tennis!

    Mooooore!! 😂❤

    (Yes I'm gonna keep saying it)

  2. Why do you keep touching the side of the table (next to the net) between each point?
    Nice video ! Already excited for the next one

  3. I play penhold and when once when I was new to the game I showed up to this place for coaching and the coach kept on telling me to switch to handshake and whenever I messed up he’s like

    It’s because your penhold

  4. Challenge: play with a half white half black table tennis ball /Challenge 2: Play table tennis with a book (I'm sure you can do it…)

  5. Wohoo Miikka starts 2020 with a win over Sensei! You guys must have played penhold before. PH backhand takes ages to develop, and Miikka especially rips it likes it's nothing…

  6. Ha ha, when you guys play with penhold, you play like me. When you play with your normal grip, you guys are just about unbeatable. Good to see your vulnerable side… I grew up playing the penhold in H.K., but switched when I came to N. America in my teens. Now I do both depending on my opponent.
    Way to go, Mikka. Otto, you're still great.
    Happy (Chinese) New Year!
