In this video Coach Prause explains good table tennis footwork, whilst Tiago Apolonia demonstrates using the Butterfly AMICUS Prime Robot.

Hi Everyone.  My name is Richard Prause and I’d like to share some tips with you for a productive and efficient practice for the table tennis robot AMICUS.

Today we are focusing on solid footwork.  Being quick on your feet is an essential requirement of a good table tennis player.  We can see Tiago’s feet being almost constantly in motion using small steps to position for the next shot.  Keep your upper body low and move for every shot.  Keeping the right distance to be able to move into the shot and then back to a neutral stance.

This exercise focuses on stepping around and moving towards the deep forehand.  Use the outer leg to bounce off and keep your upper body low during motion.  Moving towards the forehand and on stepping around, Tiago twists his torso towards the table resulting in a very stable overall motion of his body and allowing him to focus on the ball at all times.
