Targeting the Transition

Check out these new drills!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Targeting the Transition
 
 
“You need to attack his middle.”
“I recommend that you play 80% of your hits to his transition point.”
“Hunt the elbow – play the elbow – your opponent gets jammed easily!”

Learning From Losses

 
 
 
 
 
“Everybody is a winner”
“Good job my little champions”
“All the kids here get ribbons”
“No one loses”
 
These are some of the common statements that I hear from kids classes, preschool groups, and sports camps.  For young children, many teachers just want to encourage kids and make them feel nice but this approach does create some problems.
 

Table Tennis Recognition

Learn about the importance and pitfalls of recognition

 
 
 
 
 
In the table tennis world, giving players recognition is very important.  I think it is great when tournaments have an award podium and make the awards ceremony very official.  The Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy will be promoting more and more recognition in the sport as we continue to grow.  However, some players only play for the recognition from others.  IF THIS IS YOUR MINDSET, IT WILL HINDER YOUR PROGRESS!!!
