Bty Training Tips: Coach Li – Forehand Attack Exercises

The training video by Coach Li of NYITTC.  It is a set of multi-ball exercises focusing on skill development of the forehand attack.

Three Exercises:

  1. Side to Side Movement (Forehand Attack)
  2. Random Play Inside Forehand Court (Forehand Attack)
  3. Covering the Entire Table (Forehand Attack)

The goal of multi-ball is to develop proper footwork to reach the ball, as well as developing one’s anticipation in random play.

Exercise 1: Side to Side Movement
The first drill is side to side movement which helps the player develop accurate footwork in reaching the ball while implementing the forehand attack stroke. The goal is for the right foot to be lined up with the ball for each shot.

Exercise 2: Random Play Inside the Forehand Court

The second drill focuses on developing anticipation, which requires the player to judge the ball from the time it is contacted on the other side of the table. The sooner the player can properly judge the ball, the sooner they can get in position to execute the forehand attack.

Exercise 3: Covering the Entire Table
The last drill has the player covering the entire table implementing footwork using the forehand attack. This is a much more complex drill because the player will also be developing their fitness and strength in this exercise.

These exercises can be implemented with a training partner, or with a quality robot like the new Butterfly Amicus Prime.
