The Perfect Stroke?

Take a "4-QUESTION-TEST" to see if you have perfect strokes...

During tournaments, I hear many players commenting about various strokes…
“He has good strokes!”
“His strokes are wrong!”
“How does he have a 2000-rating with strokes like that?”
“His loop is very smooth!”
“He won the tournament, but he doesn’t have the best strokes.”
“His strokes are old-school!”
“Wow, his strokes flow nicely together!”

The Think Circle

Learn the 4-Step Process

 
 
 
 
 
Between pitches in baseball, the batter steps out of the batter’s box to re-focus.
 
The same thing is true in table tennis; the pros often call this the “think circle.”
 
Between points, step back about 4-6 feet away from the table and draw an imaginary circle around yourself and collect your thoughts in your think circle.  Every pro athlete has a different method of processing the points, relaxing, and gearing up for the next point, but I’m going to give you the method that I personally use.
