Table Tennis Tips for Beginners “How To Hold Table Tennis Paddle”

Welcome to EmRatThich channel. Today is the 5th Ping Sunday. I will explain the last and the most important
keypoint/tips of a table tennis grip and also the Reverse Penhold grip based on chinese
coaching. The first 2 keypoints of holding a table tennis
racket has been explained in the previous video: Use the muscle group 2 to hold your
racket, and a compact grip will increase the freedom of the wrist. I will explain in this video the last keypoint
in the “3 principles to have a good table tennis grip”. This keypoint is the most important as it
is the key of “explosiveness” in Chinese philosophy about table tennis stroke. This keypoint is less emphasized in the Western
table tennis coaching program. But if you master this keypoint, the quality
(spin+speed) of your stroke will increase dramatically. but firstly, as usual. I want to communicate with you. I really want to know which table tennis topics
interest you the most. Thank you for voting your topic. Based on your votes, the most favorite topic
is “technique” with 47 likes, 22 comments; the second is “tactics” with 21 likes, 11
comments. so I will concentrate more on your favorite
topics: table tennis techniques and table tennis tactics. I also switch topic every month as proposed
by Richard Garcia. I really want to know where you are come from. Which language does my audience speak? You come from: US, Germany, India, UK, Brazil,
Australia, Russia, Philippines, Vietnam, Canada, Indonesia, Malaysia, France, etc. Top 10 languages spoken: English, Indonesian,
Italian, Spanish, German, Vietnamese, Hindi, Filipino, Arabic, Korean. If you come from another country not shown
here, let me know by commenting below. I really want to know more about you. I let my video open so that everybody can
contribute the subtitles / close caption in his favorite language. You are automatically credited and
your name will appear in the video’s description. I hope that you can help another people who
don’t understand English by adding the video’s subtitle [CC] in your mother language. Now, let’s talk about the 3rd principle of
“How to hold a table tennis racket” Do you know this Chinese guy? He is Xu Ruifeng, Chinese table tennis team
player, ITTF World Junior Championship 2007. Why his ball is very fast and powerful? It’s a combination of several factors: his
technique, his racket, his rubber. But look at the way how he holds his racket. Have you mentioned something? He holds his racket loosely. Before receive the ball, he loosens his grip
and you can see that he always drops the head of his racket down. His racket is rather heavy, and by holding
only by the muscle group 2, his racket always points downward before any stroke. You can see that he shakes his racket a little
before receiving the ball. Why? It’s just a normal sign of the “relax phase”. Before hitting the ball, you should be relaxed. Do you remember the 3 phases “Relax, Explode,
Relax” which I have explained you before? However, there is one thing that you cannot
see in the video. That’s how he applies the pressure on the
blade. It’s impossible to see this aspect, even in
real match unless the player or the coach tells you the secret. This is the 3rd keypoint I will show you now. but wait ! Toni has shared his experiences
of how to hold the racket correctly. Spyro Fury also shared his moment of trying
the muscle group 2 to hold his racket. –>the moment of “cracking
sound” 🙂 And now, the 3rd keypoint: it is all about
the thumb, the index finger, and how to apply pressure. That is also the question of Nikola: placement
of the thumb. That is also the question of Ratz: the thumb
position and pressure. This is a very good question. The coach in his club didn’t answer him. Firstly, your thumb must be put here, on the
edge of the handle. This place on the handle is designed to put
your thumb on. That’s why every table tennis handle (Straight,
Flare, Conic) must have this edge. This edge is crucial, as it must be flat and
large enough so you can apply the pressure on the thumb. Second, once the thumb position is fixed,
don’t move the thumb. The thumb is the most important landmark / point
of reference in your grip. So don’t move the thumb. However, you can move the index finger. Third, now you must put your index finger
at the opposite side exactly of the thumb position. These 2 positions of the thumb and the index
are very important. As it makes a perfect plier to pinch your
racket. During your BH stroke, you can move your thumb
higher to support your BH stroke, but just after the stroke the thumb must be always
returned to its original position: on the edge. For your FH stroke, you can support your FH
by putting your index finger higher (look at the photo). But your thumb must be fixed, always on the
edge. How about “Applying the pressure” during the
FH and BH stroke? How to apply the pressure during the stroke
is the “heart” of the explosiveness. It’s not new for many chinese coaches. However, not many Western coach or players
know the truth behind it. Applying the pressure at the moment of contact
can dramatically increase the speed + spin of the ball. (It’s like you whip and suddenly pull it back,
the art of whip cracking). All the top chinese players apply the pressure
at the moment of contact. Proof? Show me the proof? Look at the weird face of many top players
at the moment of contact. The neuroscience explained that when you apply
the force on your hand suddenly and strongly, you also use another muscle group including
your face’s muscle. It’s the mechanism of brain signal to several
muscle groups. Now you understand why the table tennis player
has strange face when hitting the ball. It’s because they are trying to add extra
force at the moment of contact by adding the pressure on the grip. Some peoples say that “You press your thumb
during your BH stroke, and press your index finger during your FH stroke”. Others say that you should press both the
thumb and the index finger. but the truth is: for your FH stroke, you
apply the pressure only on your index finger because of the nature of this stroke. This stroke is a long stroke and very powerful,
your thumb does not support this type of stroke. for your BH stroke, you should apply the pressure
on both fingers: index and thumb. As the BH stroke is very quick, explosive
in a short distance. You also use your wrist to rotate quickly. That’s why you must press the 2 fingers to
pinch your racket firmly. If not, the racket will fly away. Can I change the grip during the transition
of BH-FH or FH-BH? Lipinski asked: Can I change my grip when
I switch from FH-BH. For this question, some coaches affirm that
you must use the same grip for both your BH and FH stroke for the reason of consistency. Another coach says that you can change the
grip during the rallies. Chinese philosophy about table tennis grip
allows you to change the grip if you have enough time. For quick rally on the table, you shouldn’t
change the grip. But if you have time (far from the table counter
attack or smashing), you can change the grip. However, you must follow the 3rd principle. You must ensure the thumb position and apply
the pressure at the moment of contact correctly. You can see that, the chinese players change
the grip to optimize the power of his smash. The index finger is moved up, but the thumb
is always at its position. For further information, you can read “How
to use the finger effectively” on Butterfly Magazine. The link is in this video’s description below. That’s it for today. I even don’t have enough time to talk about
the Penhold Grip. I will explain it next Ping Sunday. So the 3rd principle of holding a table tennis
racket based on Chinese philosophy is the most important one of the 3 keypoints:
– Your thumb on the blade is a landmark. Very important! – Index finger combines with thumb finger
to apply pressure – Apply pressure at the moment of contact
is the key for a high quality ball. You should also know where to apply the pressure:
– Move your index finger if you want to support your FH stroke
– Apply the pressure only on the index finger for your FH stroke
– You can move your thumb a little higher for your BH stroke. But your thumb should be always on the edge
– Apply pressure on both thumb and index finger during the BH stroke. It’s the time for you to practice and try
it yourself: – Topspin or push the ball without the finger
pressure as you do usually – Now, press your index and thumb finger at
the moment you contact the ball. You can feel the difference. You will “feel” the ball better now. You can also add the extra power to your shot. Speed and spin will increase. I hope you enjoy this video. I’m very busy and I’m sorry that I couldn’t
answer all of your comment. But I will try my best to give you the coaching
video next Ping Sunday. Please comment and let me know your progress. Your progress motivates me a lot. See you.

  5. Rabbani Rasha Posted on January 15, 2017 at 6:40 am

    Hi +emRatThich your tutorial really helped me, my shots really improved. I am looking to increase the speed of my shots, reading serves, looping each ball which is spinning differently (backspin, topspin, sidespin, no spin). Any tips on that will be much appreciated. By the way I am from Bangladesh, a country where no sport other than cricket is paid any heed, and I am suffering from 1st stage Spastic Cerebral Palsy. It's my dream to take part in the 2020 Paralympics TT. 🙂

    my bat: tibhar triple carbon blade, Tenergy 05 BH, Yasaka Rakza 7 FH (used to have rakza as BH, changed after watching your video)

  6. Zazen forever Posted on January 15, 2017 at 6:53 am

    It was interesting to watch this video. I went out to hit with the robot with just my index finger and thumb on the racket and the difference was amazing. In fact, when I placed my other fingers back on the handle, my stroke got worse! I focused on popping the ball at impact and applying pressure with the index on the forehand shots, and my shots were great. Doing this with my finger actually made me move my body and feet differently when I hit the ball. Very interesting.

    Thanks you so much for all your videos !

    Really good tips and particularly exceptional as NONE of my coaches know or accept to reveal your tips ,

    I had about 5 or 6 coaches after 25 years of tennis table and with age my level is slowly going down, i'm 48 .

    Thanks to your tips i really feel that i should improve my level and i'm very enthousiastic about it as i'm really passionate about tennis table .

    THANKS YOU !!!

  13. derNlShGott Posted on January 15, 2017 at 12:59 pm

    Hey EmRatThich, thanks for your good videos! I am a bit confused now. Before you did the "how to hold the Bat" series, I asked on the how to loop video for advice. I told, that I use a forehand oriented grip and that my index finger only touches my bat with the fingertip and that there is a space between the rest of my index finger and my bat. And I think you told me, that I should change my grip. Now, on this video, I see, that you use Timo Bolls grip as references, but he holds his bat exactly like me. After you previous videos I think that his grip and mine can't be correct, because I you hold your Bat like that, you have to use your other fingers to hold the bat. You can't hold your Bat with your index finger and thumb if you use Timo Bolls grip. You can see it clearly at 10:50! Timo Bolls holds his bat with the bottom 3 fingers and pushes with his indexfingers tip against the bat and his thumb isnt even touching the bat. So completely the opposit as recommended by you and chinese coaches.

    Emratthich, pensez-vous que le bois donic waldner senso v1 avec dhs skylkne neo 2 et joola énergie x'tra pourrait bien convenir pour un jeu allrond avec un revêtement chinois sur le coup droit ?

  15. Jyotiba Roby Posted on January 15, 2017 at 4:54 pm

    Well, I have to admit when I saw your video and tried to relax, explode and relax, I was able to return every topspin serve with ease. Friend of mine I played with asked what did I change to so easily return all his serves? I said to him: "It's my little secret 🙂

    Hello. Your videos are awesome. You explain things that neither coach from youtube mentioned.
    I would be so grateful if you'll post something about FOOTWORK, the biggest problem of every beginner/intermediate player IMO.
    If you don't have enough time for this subject, just suggest some good channels/videos about footwork.
    thank you, and all due respect

    I'm from Greece… I'm 13 years old and I have been playing table tennis for about 5 years… I was always the best in my club but last year and this year Ive been in a downfall. Coaches don't train me as they used to and my technique is bad.I was feeling the spin and the ball as you said in a previous video but now I feel like me technique gets worse and worse… Please help

  24. Diego Cardenas Gonzalez Posted on January 16, 2017 at 11:12 am

    Hi EmRatThich. I'm from Colombia, but I´m living in Spain at the moment. Firstly I want to say thank you for the videos, all of them are very usefull for table tennis amateur players who wants to improve their techniques and eventually their performance in competition. The video when you are talking about the five principles of chinese table tennis philosophy came to me in a very special moment: my right arm was hurting during the forehand stroke… and I didn't wanted stop training, but the pain mades me lose confidence. I needed a change in my playing style and found it in the video. After I saw the video, all my table tennis have changed. Focus on the feeling is the main task during my training sessions. The other day I watched the video related with the grip and tried to grip my blade based on it and… It was amazing… I can't explained, but the feeling from the first ball was completly different, I've never felt the ball like this before… even my blade seems another blade, not my usual blade (Butterfly Innerforce Tamca ULC). From now, I will try to press my fingers during the stroke, just to see what happens hahahaha.
    Finally, I would like to say that I saw many videos on internet but only your videos really helped me to change my playing style and to improve.
    Looking forward for your next video… Bye

  32. Vautheyc Posted on January 17, 2017 at 10:03 am

    Hello Emratthich
    I noticed that the Waldner senso v1 is not a good Allround blade.
    Could you tel me if Donic Persson power allround or Donic Appelgren woulb be good ?
    If not, I have a Nittaku Shake def ( small – le l'ai scié). It has carbon but it's not really fast so perhaps it could also be ok as allround blade.
    Thank you Int advance for your answer. Best wisches.

  33. Anh Phan Le Posted on January 17, 2017 at 10:04 am

    Bạn có thể giải thích kỹ hơn cho mình hiểu cụm từ "apply pressure" trong đoạn:"index finger combines with thumb finger to apply pressure" và "Apply pressure at the moment of contact" nghĩa là mh làm như thế nào k? tra nghĩa nó mênh mông quá nên k hiểu rõ được!

  34. Kiril Nedelchev Posted on January 17, 2017 at 10:29 am

    Hi EmRatThich, thanks a lot for your useful videos! I don't know why my comment here is disappeared but I'd like to write again.

    First of all another greetings from Bulgaria!. We're few advanced players who are fans of you channel and off course already subscribed.

    I was completely satisfied after watching your tips in the last 3 videos – How hold the bat 1,2 and most important tips.

    In fact nobody has explained me these secrets. Оn the contrary I've set them by myself only using my feeling. Almost everything is in the same way which I found in your last 3 videos but as I mentioned I've done it completely casually.

    Now watched already your videos I know that I'm on a right way.

    I'm using bat with flared handle and off course with loosen wrist – again set casually only using my feeling and again saw the explanations in your video Best racket handle? And here too I'm on a right way. I still can't believe that no one of my Bulgarian trainers couldn't explain me these essential basic tips.

    Normally I hold the bat with backhand grip. I put the thumb on a rubber in due to a better feeling. The index finger has always the standard position.
    When I play forehand I switch the grip – put the thumb on a handle but is more relaxed. Now the main pressure is transferred to the index finger and I touch often the bat with middle finger near the index finger in due to better stability. In this way I change the angle for better forehand and feel more accuracy mainly during the forehand looping. In fact i consider this small setting as a micro adjustment. 😉

    I wanted to thank for your efforts about doing all the table tennis videos and write you here a slightly longer comment!

  35. Miran Rutar Posted on January 17, 2017 at 1:49 pm

    thank you. your advises are super. I made a great progress. Keep doing.

  36. zZDanylorZz lel Posted on January 17, 2017 at 2:25 pm

    Hello I have a question and I really would like to get your answer. In western european forehand top spin the hitting contact is on the top because the angle is very close.
    For chinese forehand topspin where its the hitting contact? Thanks a lot for the support.

  37. Nikola Georgiev Posted on January 17, 2017 at 5:54 pm

  42. Harun Permadi Posted on January 19, 2017 at 3:45 am

    Hi EmRatThich, thanks for videos which make me do TT playing better. What I experienced is my thumb and index finger change position naturally when changing from FH to BH. But I often force my both fingers not to change, and I force to pinch the blade tightly… Is it correct? yet I still loosen the fingers before hitting …… thanks

    Hello EmRatThich! I just want to say thank you for your tutorials! I haven't been able to improve so much in my table tennis since i played almost 10 years ago. Your tutorial about the grip really made a difference on how I played table tennis. A lot of coaches and also in the tutorials always emphasize about the feel of the ball, but I must say I didnt't get it (or feel it even) until I saw your video on how to correctly grip the racket. So I must say thank you so much on your videos and hope you will always help aspiring table tennis players such as I to improve their game and making it more fun for them to play.

    I also want to ask, what are some of the best training programs for practicing footwork? thanks

  64. Ahmad Syafiq Najwan Ali Posted on April 22, 2017 at 4:05 am

    Hye emratthich. I would like to add something. BH and FH requires different timing. BH ball need to be stroke faster right after it bounce from the table.

    Ive discover this when i was hardly to generate power when changing from fh to bh. The longer you wait to strike BH ball, the lower power and spin it will be generated.

    Thus, the ball will be a tame ball and brutally killed by the opponent.

  65. chikoyla Posted on June 26, 2017 at 4:47 am

    Dear Coach, EmRatThich!
    Your videos are very much useful. Until now, i have never liked or felt any of the market videos with such a high and detailed information. I can see that you have been working very hard to prepare this kind of quality videos.
    Keep it on, Sir! God Bless You!
    And, as usual, accept my Thousand Salutes, Sir!

  67. Finance Issue Posted on August 1, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    Love this table tennis paddle/racket, it's my first one that I've gotten since starting to play about half a year ago at work. Before that I'd only used the crappy ones at work that were who knows how many years old and falling apart. This paddle made a HUGE difference! I actually started feeling like trying to put spins on the ball made a difference! After playing with this paddle for a few months, I'm spinning and chopping with ball on level with some of the people who have been playing for years. Some of my coworkers have other paddles they've bought which I've tried, but this one just feels the best to me. Lightweight with good speed and spin!

    Thank you so much for this video. I'm in the West, but prefer penhold style, and it's hard to find videos related to that style.

    В момент хвата ракетка должна быть в ладони , или в основании пальцев? На подушках(At the time of capture, should the racket be in the palm of your hand, or at the base of your fingers? On cushions)

    I actually found this to be true when serving as well, to pinch the racket at the contact with the wrist movement.
    After trying it out today I found two things happened.
    1. The vibration of the blade was sharp and I could feel the contact a lot better.
    2. The quality of the ball increased DRAMATICALLY! Now I will try to use the grip with the thumb at the edge, as your tips clearly are correct.

    I will also upgrade to harder rubbers on fh as my forehand loop is starting to develop at a lightning speed right now.

    I will focus on the finger pressure and feeling of the ball from now on

    Hi mister, i write for France. Merci beaucoup for your teaching videos. I made translations of your videos for tittle and subtittle because it's realy important for French players to learn all of your contents, coach never give a complete lesson in France. Theoric points are not teached, it's realy dommageable, so thank you so very much. W.Belliard near Nantes.
