The Learning Stages

Learn the Recipe For Success!

 
 
 
 
Learning a new skill in table tennis takes time.  Some skills take about a month to develop, but most take about 2-3 years to fully master.  In this blog, I’m going to talk about the steps to perfection.  It is vitally important to go step-by-step, even if it takes a long time.  You can apply this theory to ANY stroke; however, I’m going to use the backhand loop against block as an ILLUSTRATION.

Bible Verse of the Week

Proverb

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. -Proverbs 3:5-6
