The official letter from Ms. Xu to EmRatThich

Ms. Xu (the organizer of the Training Camp) has emailed me to inform about the next Training Scholarship in China. Here is her message:

Dear EmRatThich,
Thank you very much for your quick reply. Because our summer school has just ended. I knew your website through the trainees. Our students said that they saw something shared with you through YouTube, so they knew that we had this summer camp. Thank you very much for your willingness to help us to promote our program. If you have time next year, we would like to invite you to come to our event. Our summer school next year may be in mid-June. At the end of this year, I will confirm the time of our camp next year. Photos and videos of enrollment will be sent to your email address

thanks for your help. I will continue to pay attention to your website and hope your website will get better and better keep contact.

The training camp will be held in Summer (mid-June) 2020. Stay tuned! I will give you the exact information on PingSunday.

What does the training sessions in China look like?

I’ve explained the secret of “Chinese training” in other posts. Like this one “Chinese training methods“, or “Best Chinese coaching tips“, or “Training Drills in China“.

But in general, if you get a chance to train in China. You will see these types of training methods.

A lot of repetition

Yes, in China, they focus a lot of repetition.

They do the same gesture, the same type of stroke again and again. Every player needs to repeat a thousand and a thousand times.

They don’t want just to learn, but they want to master and perfect any type of strokes. Because it takes a lot of time for our brain to learn new techniques. It’s called as “muscle memory”.

Repetition also helps you improve your feeling. In Chinese table tennis philosophy, Feeling and Control is the Key.

So remember, to improve fast:

Feeling and Control is the Key.

How to repeat the same training?

In China, they do a lot of multiball practice. This is the fastest way to help your muscle memory. You will learn quickly by focusing on only one technique.

Note, there are about 10 basic techniques that you should learn.

A lot of “shadow training”

What is shadow training in table tennis? Shadow training is practicing without the ball.

And the Chinese coach loves doing this. Why?

A lot of Shadow Training (without using the ball) to focus only on the body movement

Because by doing the “shadow training”, without using any tool, you are now focusing only on the body movement. And yes! body movement is the key to any table tennis gesture.

Shadow training helps you Focus on the body movement

A lot of amateur players forget this crucial step! Every shot should start with a lower part of your body! This is the big mistake that you should avoid! If not, you never progress in table tennis.

Weight transfer

And lastly, the Chinese coach focuses on doing the “weight transfer” during your shots. Why?

I’ve explained this concept before, this concept is one of the 4 fundamental concepts in Chinese table tennis.

Weight Transfer helps you to Improve the consistency of the shot + Get Power From The Ground

Weight transfer is the key to improve the power and the consistency of table tennis shots

So Weight transfer is the key to improve the power (of your forehand attack) and the consistency of table tennis shots. More consistency means less error, and then your level will improve. More power means the winning percentage of each point increases.

Training with national players

If you are lucky enough, you can see or even play some points with the top Chinese players.
