Table Tennis Blog
Table Tennis is not just about backhands, forehands and serves!! There is an infinite amount of shot's and tricks which can be achieved and should be explored. We often focus on systematic training and forget to experiment. If we explore beyond our current capabilities we give ourselves the opportunity to progress.
My TT hero Jan Ove-Waldner (widely regarded as the greatest player of all time) was so innovative and a head of the game that it allowed him to compete with the best, for over 3 decades. Waldner demonstrated shots that people had never seen or thought physically possible, not only in practice but he managed to pull them off at crucial times including the Olympic and World championship final's.
As a player if you wish to progress you must try things and do not fall into the brackets of "don't do that" structure will only limit you.
As humans we break barriers by doing something out of the norm and by doing so we develop and progress.
Limitations are in your mind so don't allow your mind to say its not possible until you have tried it, don't be scared to be different...
We are all unique so why mold yourself like everyone else?
I began playing when I saw Forrest Gump and from that day it became a life long journey..
