I've been playing table tennis for almost a year now. I have been using Yasaka Rising Dragon on my forehand and I have noticed that my forehand technique isn't improving much. I miss easy shots and most shots go into the net or over the table. I've watched your videos and you say to stick with your current bat for a good year. Does Chinese rubber need a completely different technique that European? I've been doing my forehand according to your videos. I've watched players like Timo Boll play and he has a very compact stroke (he uses tenergy) but watching Chinese players I notice their strokes are very full and use their whole arm.
So, should I switch to european or Japanese rubbers for training and use Chinese rubbers later?
thank you very much for your time and dedication
There is no need to change the rubber. The same technique will work for both Chinese and European rubbers. Just make sure the rubbers still have grip on them.
Keep focusing on technique...
