  1. He's a para-olympian. His body hasn't developed like the average human's, so naturally his technique looks off. Like you said, though, he's a monster at the table.

  2. lol ever seen thomas keinath that dude is in the top 100 for years and his technique is truly ugly but beauty isn't everything i guess

  3. LOL he cant even hold a bat propally and he saids hes professional, professional my ass hes fcken shit has to technique

  4. The purpose of this video was not to bring out this man's limitations (not that he has any), but to merely help the beginner/intermediate players improve their game. I cannot understand why those who feel insecure have to make a big deal out of the little stuff. Could it be that they are in serious need of therapy? I think so….I mean who cares if pro does things that others don't agree with? I sure as hell don't and I sleep good at night.

  5. Well, this fellow is Tahl Leibovitz, a WORLD CLASS table tennis player who competes in Paralympic Games for the United States. In table tennis, the severity of disability is divided into 10 classes with number 10 being least severe. Classes 1-5 competes in a wheelchair, classes 6-10 competes in a standing position.
    Tahl stands at 5'4" and bone tumors on most areas of his body including his playing arm

  6. The reason I said world class is because he won a Gold Medal in 1996 and a Bronze Medal in 2004 Paralympic Games. Calling himself "professional" is just being modest if not demeaning.

  7. I dont care what others say but your advice make sense to me. I should keep them in mind when I play Thanks for sharing these words of wisdom Tahl!

  8. Nice of him to post the video, but I agree completely with Eaglibrium. Grip is all wrong. The forehand hit: follow through is WAY too long and leaves him out of balance. I could go on, but you get the point. I think he's one of those players who gets by despite his technique rather than because of it.

  9. when you r about to recieve .. if it bounce first at my court into the opponent's court.. is that considred ?? (sorry for my bad english) pls help…

  10. Tahl's a great coach and should be admired for not letting being saddled with a deleterious physical situation get him down.  I am on one of the USTTA committees and I have worked with TL.  He's a top flight person
