    This guys technique is wrong but good vid anyway

  3. Kevin Edward Te says:

    @pokeranter56x There ARE no wrong techniques, as long as the person gets it right and comfortably.

  4. Hazamatoxin says:

    @kvedward Thats definetely true, it correct to do what works for you

  5. Daniel Hayes says:

    I prefer forehand more, it seems alot easier for the way i play to smash it.

  6. V Ling says:

    backhand smash is more beautiful in my opinion because of the relative difficulty…….forehand looks badass as well if you smash it like Tennis…..

  7. Takasanwhich says:

    @kvedward Depends on what your definition of wrong techniques is. In table tennis, you can smash the ball the way you like, but if you do it in a way that waste energy and opens up your weak areas if your opponent manages to get the ball, then I would consider that a wrong technique.

    @The45Goku did you winned

  9. Cenzurek says:

    You know, professional player as u named yoself, u won't be Forest Gump with ur technique…

  10. NightcruiserMA says:

    You should do a bit of research before commenting. In true table tennis circles, Tahl is well known and is an excellent professional player. Do a little reading on him and you'll be amazed at what you find.

  11. jhon peter says:

    can't wait to play a professional player one day, and go all the way "U jelly bro!"

  12. M Tordas says:

    yes there is bad teqniques if youre not using your wrist at all then you are not going to get the full power

  13. Dan S says:

    let me correct you… trying to smash the ball while riding a donkey blind folded and cramming a table tennis paddle up your bum is definitely considered a WRONG technique… lol just sayin ha

  14. Sona Mid says:

    not if it worked :3

  15. Sona Mid says:

    his grip on the bat is even bad

  16. Preslav Stefanov says:

    Learn how to hold a bat.

  17. S.W. de Jong says:

    Dude, really? There is no wrong way…there is orthodox and unorthodox, being the latter doesn't make something wrong. Are you going to criticize Ma Lin, Wang Hao, Xu Xin, Ryu Seung Min, etc. because they don't play Shakehand? I'll leave you with this: 'Variation is the spice of life.'

    Paraolympic player, Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist. Que?

  20. George D. says:

    so his moves are based on the fact that he is paraolympic player . his moves are made especially for him and he developed them for him self . his technique is bad for a new player , plus he doesnt have the ability to explain it !

  21. jordanwade94 says:

    whenever i play i mostly use my backhand for everything, while my forehand is my "o crap button" and it only returns the ball 50% of the time. is this alright? is it allowed?

  22. DzonyUgrin says:

    He moves like a midget xD

  23. Ludovic Lee Freithofnig says:

    dude he medaled in the paralympic games in athens, and is now competing in class 9 in the paralympics. His movements arent good because of his disability.

  24. LuisNascimento says:

    he is on the paralympics, he has disabilities, just to let you know…

  25. sedricG says:

    hes a paralympic competetor, i think he knows what hes doing. so have a coke an a smile and shut the hell up..

  26. Haslaeifriistailaa Fin says:

  27. gianngarcia says:

    This guy's technique is not right. Very akward backhand Smash.

  28. Mofuzable says:

  42. boody ashraf says:

  43. Alwayssmarter says:

    don't waste 20 seconds of your live starts at 0:20

  44. Dieter Verhofstadt says:

    I've been taught differently for a backhand smash. It is not just a quick execution of the usual backhand counter or backhand topspin. It is either
    a) a topsin stroke with the bat so closed at the backhand that it almost travels horizontally and brushes the ball downward (because you hit it high) OR
    b) a very flat stroke that starts from the head and "flaps" downward by increasing the elbow angle with a little wrist flapping added.

    No doubt you beat me easily but still I doubt your advice.

  45. merlopick says:

    mmhhh…really? Or maybe there is a reason why top players all have a very similar technique? If you play with your friends it probably won't make a big difference, but if you are a professional player, having a *correct* technique is fundamental. This guy doesn't even hold the paddle correctly!

  46. Jacob Hill says:

    He's a paralympian

  47. all_blue says:

    LOL, he can't play, you can find any kid on the street in China plays better than him 

  48. darren pilkington says:

    is he a full size person?…I cant tell…

  49. Rey Xavier says:

    like +1

  50. Ryan14VT says:

  51. Wendykoh says:

    This is so good

  52. fieryspirit says:

    Only 1995 I was learning advanced gropes by that time!

  53. KSHITIJ SHARMA says:

    ping skills are better than him

  54. Michael Rudner says:

    What does he mean to pass through the ball? Could somebody clarify what he means?

  55. lightawake says:

    great videos but wish they would repeat bits in slow motion.

  56. Sabine Lövquist says:

    I like your smash dude😎

  57. Eduardo Alipio says:

    Can wait to rio 2016🇪🇨🇪🇨 I need to improve my forehand more.

  58. Damani Eversley says:

    it is an awesome video

  59. help says:

    this guy sucks

  60. Abdullah AlQurashi says:

    I think you can skip the introduction, I saw it a billion times so far, other than that, nice job

  61. Advaita Rao says:

    Thanks your videos help me alot

  62. Raúl Couto says:

    this guy sucks

  63. Michael Hua says:

    I don't recommended anyone learning from this guy. His form is very poor this negates future potential of players. I had a few students, I had to re-teach form due to people who consider "professional players" coaching wrong techniques and strokes.

  64. m∆ppy☥ says:

    You just smash, duh.

  65. Connect the dots says:

    He is not a damn pro

  66. Honor TWINC says:

    Do I need to pass through the ball quickly? Just double checking here! 😜

  67. Ali Memon says:

    a lot of u guys so disrespectful to him so shame on u
