[Video] How to do a chop block – with Craig Bryant

In this video lesson, I am joined by Craig Bryant. Craig is a UKCC level 4 coach (the highest level in England) and a former junior and international player.

This video is all about the chop block. It’s a tricky shot to do, but if you can do it, it’s a brilliant way to mess up your opponent. You can use a chop block to change the speed and spin on the ball and cause a lot of confusion.

In this video, Craig explains and demonstrates how to do a chop block. And I take on Craig in a chop block challenge. Will I be able to return any of Craig’s chop blocks? Watch to find out how I get on…

And just a quick shout-out for Craig… Craig Bryant is a full-time table tennis coach. He offers individual, group and corporate coaching services. You can find out more information on Craig’s website.

  1. Thanks Craig, really enjoyed this shot and how it can change the pace of the rally. I will try and practice with it until I can achieve the chop block! Many Thanks, Geoff Ware.
