From the perspective of the large action structure, the attack can be divided into two categories: forehand and backhand. Attacking the ball is the most important technique for quick offense, with strong lethality and a key technique for solving battles.

Basic stance for a forehand shot:

The basic stance is that the left foot is slightly forward and the right foot is behind (take the right hand as an example). Generally, the racket is placed in front of the abdomen, the center of gravity is between the feet, and it is slightly forward to facilitate starting. Squeeze your abs, hold your chest, and bend your knees slightly, but don’t squat down to keep your center of gravity high.

Forehand center of gravity shift:

As the ball approaches the net, the arms begin to move the center of gravity. When the center of gravity moves, turn the waist slightly, but don’t turn it too much, just feel the center of gravity of the body on the right foot. After shifting the weight to the right foot, the right shoulder drops slightly. The support leg is slightly bent, but not too much, so as not to cause the center of gravity to be too low to exert force. During the movement of the center of gravity, the waist and abdomen should be closed to maintain a certain state of tension. The position of the center of gravity on the feet is that the soles of the feet are slightly closer to the front and outer sides, which can give full play to the effect of pushing the ground to the upper left front.

Forehand lead shot:

When the center of gravity moves, the racket moves diagonally to the right and backward through the abdomen. And be natural. The general lead position is below the waist on the right side of the body, and the shoulders should be properly tense. The shoulders cannot be fully opened, as this will affect the transfer of momentum. The arm is relaxed, and the forearm and upper arm should not be in a line, that is to say, the arm cannot be fully straightened, which is easy to cause stiffness.

During the lead-in process, a fatal problem is to pull the elbow back or lift the elbow upward, which greatly affects the force. The elbow is almost always in line with the hand throughout the lead-in. If it exceeds the position of the hand in the front-to-back direction, it means that there is a problem with the trigger. The front-to-back sequence is that the forearm drives the elbow joint to move, and the elbow joint cannot pull the forearm to push back and forth. In the process of triggering the shot, the distance between the upper arm and the body should be naturally opened, and the arm should not be clamped. It is about a punch away.

The power of the lead racket for the forehand attack:

Force is a process of transferring momentum. The basic principle of its transmission is that it is transmitted from large muscle groups to small muscle groups, from the lower part of the body to the upper part, and from the proximal end of the body to the distal end. In the specific operation process, start with the outer front side of the right foot pushing forward and upward, and gradually lift the center of gravity upward. For a moment. During this process, the hip joint should be properly pushed forward, the waist and abdomen should be tightened, and the strength should be controlled and concentrated. The forearm and wrist should be adducted at the moment of impact, and the fingers should grasp the blade at the moment of impact. Concentrate the force on the board.

Forehand swing and restoration:

After the ball leaves the racket, the arm will continue to swing for a certain distance, which we call the follow-up swing. Its function is to relieve the inertial effect of the arm force movement, which does not have much effect on increasing the power of the ball, but it is also an indispensable link, otherwise the movement will not be coherent and natural, affecting coordination.

The restoration position is selected according to the batting situation of the next cricket. When restoring the forehand, the center of gravity should be shifted to the right side to save time for the next board attack.

Sideways forehand:

1: Action essentials:

First, quickly move your steps to a sideways position, with your body sideways to the table, your left foot in front and your right foot behind, your upper body leaning forward slightly and your abdomen tucked in. When hitting the ball, according to the situation of the incoming ball, you can use the forehand to attack the ball near the table, the middle table attack, the ball inside the table, the pull ball and the spiking ball in the sideways position.

Putting the short ball in the forehand:

1: Action essentials:

Body close to the table. Take the attacking position before hitting the ball, and when the ball bounces off the table, stretch your arms forward to meet the ball. The incoming ball rotates very much as follows, the racket surface should be tilted back, touch the middle and lower part of the ball, and quickly rub over the net; if the incoming ball does not rotate, the racket surface and the table surface are almost vertical, and the middle of the ball is often hit by leveraging or reducing force. Requires active effort.

Smashing the ball in the forehand:

1: Action essentials:

Stand with your feet open, your right foot behind, turn your body to the right, pull your arms out to the right back, and place your weight on your right foot. When hitting the ball, the upper arm swings in a circular motion from the bottom up, the racket is tilted forward, the forearm and wrist are pressed down at the same time, and the upper part of the ball is hit at the height between the head and the shoulders. After hitting the ball, the arm swings down and swings to the left side, the upper body cooperates with the left turn, and the support point of the center of gravity moves to the left foot.

Forehand Arc Circle Ball:

1: Action essentials:

When the ball hits back and turns the arc ball (fast belt), you can pull your arm away when the ball hits the stage, swing your arm forward and down as soon as the ball bounces, and the racket leans forward at about 60 degrees to the table top. .

Skateboard ball in forehand:

1: Action essentials:

Before hitting the ball, the center of gravity is placed on the right foot, the left foot is in front, the body is slightly turned to the right, the racket is placed on the right side of the body, the arms are swung from right to left front, and the left side of the ball is touched during the high point period. Instantly slide the racket to the left to make the ball spin to the left. After hitting the ball, the center of gravity is shifted to the left foot.

Smash in forehand:

1: Action essentials: Stand with your feet open, your right foot behind, and your center of gravity supporting your right foot. Before hitting the ball, turn the body slightly to the right, and lead the racket to the right rear into a semi-horizontal shape (the end of the straight grip racket is slightly down, and the side of the horizontal grip racket is slightly up). When hitting the ball, the upper arm drives the forearm to swipe hard from the back to the front, combining the power of the right leg to push the ground and the power of turning the waist to hit the ball at the high point. Topspin the incoming ball, the racket face is slightly forward when hitting the ball, and the upper part of the ball is hit; the ball is underspinned, and the racket should be slightly lower than the incoming ball before hitting the ball, hitting the middle of the ball. After hitting the ball, the racket swings to the left side of the chest, and the support point of the center of gravity moves to the left foot.

Pull the ball in the forehand:

1: Action essentials:

Stand close to the table, with your right foot behind and your weight on your right foot. Before hitting the ball, lead the racket to the lower right side of the body into a semi-horizontal shape, with the racket surface almost vertical. The upper arm is about 35 degrees to the body and about 130 degrees to the forearm. When the ball starts to fall from the highest point, the upper arm and forearm swing from the back to the front and the upper arm, the forearm is quickly adducted, and the middle and lower parts are rubbed with the force of the wrist rotation. After hitting the ball, the support point of the center of gravity moves to the left foot, and the racket swings to the head.

Forehand shot:

1: Action essentials:

The right foot is behind, the support point of the center of gravity is on the right foot, and the body is about 1 meter away from the platform. The preparation position before hitting the ball is similar to the forehand close attack. When hitting the ball, the upper arm is the main force, driving the forearm and wrist to swing to the upper left and front, and hit the middle of the ball at the highest point of the ball or the front part of the drop.
