Recently Alois and I decided to see how easy it would be to knock a cone off each others head. I hope you'll enjoy watching this video as much as we did making it.
Jeff must be very painful. Poor Jeff...
You'd think Jeff would hit Alois in the face on purpose once or twice first, just for revenge, but no!
I really needed a good laugh and this is hilarious!!
Sure, I have multiple targets set up on my table, but none of them are human.
Inspiration .. yes! But no volunteers as of yet. :)
Seriously though, it is great practice to aim for a target on your table.
It will increase your accuracy and confidence.
Oh yes, could I have hit the cone?!
Maybe, but they probably would have thrown me out of the room after the first n attempts. lol
Yes Yap he is painful!
A full salute to Jeff for being a target for Alois...who then turned his back to Jeff!! Ha-Ha...Alois couldn't take the pressure of Jeff possibly getting a little revenge for the shots to his face!! No guts, no glory as they say!! LOL
Definitely no guts here Dana!!
To reach more pain in your opponent you should do more topspin! Just like in normal Table tennis game. And you have a direct audio feedback how strong your topspin was, and visual feedback where you hit him. The cone is, I understand, just deception. You have to avoid hitting the cone at any price because when you hit it it's your turn to have it on the head wich is bad.
But good job Alois, convincing Jeff to do this kind of cruel medieval table tennis practice, and making him believe, it's all about hitting the cone.
I secretly always knew, Alois is smarter than Jeff.
It's quite obvious. Alois is older. Also for example: Jeff loves the numbers and statistics so much but it's actually Alois who gets the well paid job at the statistics center.
Love your thinking Marcin...
It's all fun and games at the statistics centre!
Proud to announce the new Alois "sudokuskills" Ask the coach site.
Sudokuskills should actually be Sudoskills
Now I know, why I'm still loosing in TT! I just learn the Ping side of it.
serious. Recently I won approximately 8 out of 10 games against guys I set myself a timespan to beat them of a half year. Ok it took me maybe 2 months more but finally I have beaten them. Thanks Pingskills!
actually my main step to beat them was my better serve quality, and just calming down my attack after a good serve of mine.
My very weekness at the moment is the receive. It's easy for me to analyze the opponent and the serve and what to do as return and especially how I would have to move for a successful receive. I just don't get it together in time.
Difficult for me to explain in English how much I enjoyed this video.... :) :) :)
It's completely surprised. I can not understand how You both play exact head shots in a such long distance. You are great, but I surely darenot try playing TT like your displays. Thanks
Lots of fun!!
Haha crazy guys!!
We'll have to try that one tomorrow
Good luck Boyd!
Haha great fun to watch
Thanks Dave... Lots of fun for me too...
So much pure fun and genuine entertainment in 30 seconds! But weren't you worried you'd accidentally hit and crack the LCD screen of the camera? I was, kind of.
Actually the LCD screen was the furthest thing from my mind... I am just lucky it wasn't Vladimir Samsonov throwing the Boomerang.
Take a look at Samsonov throwing a Boomerang.
Jeff was epic. First timer !
Haha yes, I even surprised myself!
OMG! Exactly the belly laughs I needed today!!! Sorry Jeff, but you getting hit is hilarious!
I bet Alois could have hit you on the first try. Thanks for brightening my day.
How to return a serve that has lots of side spin and is short. John Wiens
It is probably best to either push or flick the return. You need to adjust to the sidespin by angling your racket to deal with the effect of the spin. If the ball is going to take the ball to theft, then angle your racket to the right and vice versa. Once you have this then you can think about aiming the ball short on the push or you can flick if there isn't much backspin on the ball.
For somebody like me, trying to learn how to play better Table Tennis, it is very conefusing :-)
