Fix It or Trash It?

Learn to problem-solve during matches

 
 
 
 
 
 
In every match, you will miss some shots.  When you miss a particular shot in table tennis, what do you do?  Do you adjust your particular shot or do you stop doing that particular shot? 
 
Let me illustrate…
 

Pedagogy

Read an Excerpt From the ITTF Advanced Coaching Manual

It is very difficult for the players to imagine a motor action that is only described with words.  Nothing can replace the image.  It is therefore strongly recommended to put the proposed exercises into an image either by letting the players or the coach demonstrate it or by showing a video of a high level player.
 
Questioning is an important part of the pedagogy employed because it allows to rephrase what has been said and to get a better idea of the player’s understanding of the instructions they are meant to follow.
 

Don't Make Me Mad...

Mentally Strong vs Mentally Weak

 
 
 
 
 
Some Random Stranger, “He definitely shouldn’t have done that!!!”
Samson, “Shouldn’t have done what?”    
Some Random Stranger, “He shouldn’t have chooooooed so loudly every time he hit the net or edge with a lucky shot!!!  He made me mad!  When I’m mad, I play so determined!”
Samson:  “So what happens when you aren’t mad?”

Questions...

Questions that you should be asking yourself everyday!

 
 
 
During a private lesson at the Samson Dubina Table Tennis Academy, I usually ask my student about 20-30 questions. 
 
So why do I ask them questions? 
 
Aren’t I getting paid to answer questions? 
 
Let me explain...   If a student keeps looping my push into the net, I will ask him…
 
A. Why is your backhand loop continually going into the net?
B. Were you watching my racket?
C. Did you read the amount of spin that I put on the ball?
