Hi Friends,

We aim to give you the experience of a lifetime.  This is the reason that we recently launched the Samson Dubina Educational Table Tennis Academy, Inc. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The new experiences that we are going to offer are not just for those people here in Ohio but are going to be implemented at table tennis clubs around the country.  Money has already started arriving from faithful supporters.  

Devastate the Underdog

Learn Proper Preparation

 
 
 
 
 
I estimate that over 50% of upsets could have been avoided!
Let me explain...
 
 
 
 
As soon as the upset happens, there is usually a whirlwind of excusing flying all across the gym.  Some of them are non-sense.  Some of them are legit.
I have often heard excuses like…
“I didn’t warm-up before the match.”
“I thought he was easy; I won 3-0 last time we played.”
“I was just so hungry, that I couldn’t concentrate.”
“I started off the first game just trying out some new fancy shots.”

DEXTERITY

Learn how to improve your game 500 points this year!

DEXTERITY
 
Every table tennis player should strive for dexterity.  This is a skill that some players are naturally more gifted with and some players are not.  The good news is that it can be trained as well.  So what is dexterity???
 
Dictionary Definition of “Dexterity”
dex·ter·i·ty
noun \dek-ˈster-ə-tē, -ˈste-rə-\
 
: the ability to use your hands skillfully
: the ability to easily move in a way that is graceful
: clever skill : the ability to think and act quickly and cleverly
 

Remembering & Forgetting

Learn to win at 9-9

 
 
 
 
 
 
Forgetting & Remembering
 
During a table tennis match, is it beneficial to remember previous points or to just block out the past and play in the moment?
 
The answer is…   BOTH!
To reach your peak potential, you need to forget and remember!  I’m going to illustrate my point by sharing a true story that happened to me.
 
I was playing one of the most important matches of my life. 
I was down 1-2 in games in a best 3/5 match.
