Hi everybody
I discovered a YouTube channel called emrathich. But I do not know if the information given here is correct or wrong what do you think (Please look this channel. Some say it's a good channel. Some say he is a troll. We are in conflict  )

Hi Mehmet,

I think when you are trying to learn any skill from a coach, it's important that you listen to what they say and then see if their message makes sense to you. Finding someone who's message resonates with you makes it more likely you'll continue to follow their advice. So what I'm trying to say is that it doesn't matter what other people think, if you like the videos and are getting good information from them then continue to watch them.

I hope people think about our PingSkills videos too. I believe you learn more by questioning things. So if people watch our videos and aren't sure about some area we are discussing then make sure to leave a comment, or ask a question on this forum. You'll certainly learn more following this approach.



PS. I did have a quick look at the video you linked to where he mentions that PingSkills charges for it's videos. We certainly do have a premium membership (thank you to everyone who has joined, we appreciate your support), however we also offer this forum, and hundreds of free videos to help those who can't afford to join.

My opinion is that he is an excellent coach. His videos have improved my technique immensely! However, I do see how some might say he is a "troll," but I think it is due to something being "lost in translation." He often points out European/western playing techniques and says that they are "wrong," but I think it should be taken more as "not completely correct for Chinese technique." As an example, I remember in one video he shows Timo Boll and says it's "wrong," but Timo Boll is widely regarded as the pinnacle of European technique.

My thoughts, if you're trying to develop your technique more specifically into that "Chinese philosophy," then it is a really great resource. But if that's not your playing style, you can still learn a lot about stuff like footwork, body movement, and tactics, but maybe the stroke techniques won't fully apply.

Emrathick channel, is surely a good Chinese gamestyle instructor . Thou he says Western or European style is in the wrong way we can't assume it's trolling. We can even say Western is better than Chinese style but the thing is to see each other's way of principles. It's in the player to learn it. It's good to know the information to see each other's perspectives. Maybe you can learn something. Always respect each other's principle and ideas. Thank You Sir Jeff from that respecting feedback.

Different approaches to instrution over the internet have different benefits. For me, the most valuable part of PingSkills is the 52-week training plan and accompanying master classes. Let me explain why. Many authors of the courses show techniques and that is it. But it is not enough. Mastering those techniques require a lot of regular practice. Moreover, this practice should be well organized and targeted at specific aspects to improve. In the 52 weeks plan, the guys show examples on how to design training sessions to improve something in your game. One can follow the exact plans of the sessions, or design their own ones based on the same principles. From my experience, all high level practice I saw (e.g. training camps with pro coaches) is organized the same way. I don't know any other table tennis resource that has such a great resource on organisng the practice. Many players underestimate this, practice random things without goals and get stuck.

Thanks Ilia. I must admit we did not realise the value of these when we were making them. It seems there has been a lot of value in them.
