Hi, first of all I would like to say that I find your videos very good and the idea that you had of creating a site where you can learn everything and more about pingpong is really fantastic! said that, my question is the following:

I have seen that many of your videos are from 10-12 years ago. In 10-12 years, has the technique, tactics and everything related to the world of ping pong changed or has it somehow evolved? If I learn one of your techniques explained 10-12 years ago, do I learn an older technique? My question is not only about the technique but in general to all the contents of the site. If there are videos from 6-7-10-12 years ago, do I learn something that has evolved over the years? And if all the contents of the site have evolved, how much can this evolution affect performances?

Hi Marco,

I think the content of the old videos still holds up.  The basics don't really change that quickly.  The more advanced strokes may start to develop over time with new things being innovated.

We try to update things wen we can... We know some of those old classics make us cringe sometimes with the rawness of the video and audio we started with however, hopefully the message remains the same.

OK thanks.

Can you say the same thing about the other contents of the site? (Serving and Receiving, training, tactics, sports psychology ecc)

Yes I would.

As Alois mentioned, nearly all of the principles for strokes and techniques hold up well over time. With serving you still need a fast brushing contact to generate lots of spin. There have been some new developments and one of these is the banana flick. I feel like this is the biggest change in the game over the last 20 years!
