Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Serving Secrets revealed DVD review
Reviews/comments from forum thread (forum.oneofakindtrading.com.au)

I received the Dan Seemiller/Mark Nordby "Complete Table Tennis" DVD set in the mail today.

This is a comprehensive 2-DVD package that is three hours and twenty minutes long. Seemiller says it covers the same information taught during his week long seminars.

Although not the slickest special effects, the two-camera production is more than adequate. There doesn't seem to be much editing. This is mostly raw footage that makes you feel like you're actually attending a seminar.

Slow motion would have been nice, but if you watch on your computer you can easily slow down and analyze anything you want. The big feature here is information and in that area there is more meat here by far than in any other DVD I have seen.

Unlike the Samsonov and Killerspin DVDs that give a short explanation and demonstration of various strokes, "Complete Table Tennis" offers a detailed lecture on each topic (the looping section alone is 40 minutes long) as well as an excellent demonstration of the strokes. The information supplied is very deep and advanced. I had many "a'ha" moments. There no way I could come close to absorbing everything this video covers in one sitting. Next time I watch it I'll take notes.

There are twelve chapters:

Introduction
Fundamental Strokes
Advanced Strokes
General Principles
Serve Return
Short Game
Serving
Footwork
Multiball
Style Strategies
Long Pips
What's in a Player's Bag

Notes: Yes Seemiller uses the Seemiller grip throughout and does discuss it briefly. He also mentioned his antispin side briefly, but no tips on how to use it.....The section on long pips was how to play against it. Nordby seemed very happy about the frictionless ban. They think LP players can't attack.....While a lot of videos cater to beginners, this one is advanced enough for players at high levels also.....Coverage of serving, serve return and short game was superb and you feel that Seemiller wasn't holding back on revealing his personal playing secrets.....Seemiller and Nordby are diehard loopers and they teach an attacking strategy, however Seemiller doesn't hit a lot of backhands so as a pip player, I still felt that most the information applied to my game -- especially since I have gone to an aggressive looping forehand with Tenergy.

Although pricey at USD$79.95, I would still highly recommend this video for players who are serious about taking their game to the highest level they can attain. This DVD now sets the gold standard in which to measure others against.
