Hello Jeff and Alois, 

I noticed that my shake hand grip is primarily favorable to the forehand side with my finger a little more vertical than normal which limits a strong back hand attack. Is it alright to change grips constantly between a backhand favored grip and a FH favored grip? Or should i just suck it up and try and get used to a more equal grip, which would be better for an improving beginner table tennis player.?

Hi Jared,

In short, it is best to stay with the same grip because in faster rallies you just don't have time to be changing.
