SCOTT BROWDER: So now we've got the basic flow with the paddle, what you want to do then is to be able to hit some shots so that, like I said, your arm is up in front of you and you're coming back and forth you do your figure eight, so that the ball you're getting used to the feeling the ball flip off this way and then flip off of your backhand the same way so that you're hitting the ball forehand, hitting the ball backhand, hitting the fo--and you're basically coming in and out with your arm and just flipping your wrist back and forth so that everything is upfront right in front of your body and then if you get it back too far, obviously it throws off your shot. You want to try to keep it up in front of your body so that everything is right there in front where you're in line, you're low, you're keeping the ball up in front, and if the ball comes up high obviously you should back up but if it's coming in that little zone, you're right here you're hittin' forehand, you're hittin' back and you're hittin' forehand, you're hittin' backhand, so it's just forehand, backhand, forehand, backhand. And that's all there is to that shot it's just basically up front, in front of your body, pushing your arm into the ball towards the net, flipping forehand, backhand right in that zone. In that way you'll stay on top of the play, the ball won't jam up into your body, we won't have a chance to jam up but you do have to be able to move your body forward and backward and stay light on your feet and be able to move around the table as well as possible because that will keep the ball in front of your body and be able to keep your eyes focused on the ball and be able to make your play early and not get caught with the ball up into your body.
