乓夫  - 通往"完美"的道路
但这是一条铺满了令人失望台阶的道路。
对失望的适应力是衡量一个人的标准。但很少有人愿
意接受这种衡量。因此,以追求幸福的名义,大多数
人都形成了一种对不完美的留恋。因此,对不完美的
追求一直是现时代里最流行的消遣。
我,在追求一个完美乒乓球打法的过程中,陷入了无
限的失望和羞辱,但得到一个有价值的生命。
经过20年的奋斗,为了摆脱打法中的不完美之处,
我不得不在打法中做出很多改变。这些变化构成了对
旧打法的破坏,取而代之的是新打法。对于任何经验
丰富的球员来说,改变就是一项最艰苦的任务。
我所见过最令人难忘的例子就是网球选手,皮特桑普
拉斯,Pete Sampras. 他,作为一名顶级网球高手,从
双手反手转换为单手反手是件不可思议的冒险。其他
人可能认为转换让他成为历史上最好的网球选手。但
是从我经常来回地狱在乓夫上的经历来说,桑普拉斯
从他,因改变了打法,而需要从低排名打回归他以前
的高位,是一般人无法忍受的羞辱。这培养了他的精
神耐力,使他成为冠军。
我应该顺便提一下,皮特*桑普拉斯,罗杰*费德勒和
伊万*伦德尔这样的单手网球打法,是男子网球的完美
风格。 而女性的完美网球风格是莫妮卡塞莱斯, 
Monica Seles,的全双手网球打法,德国人得把一把刀
刺入她的背后才阻止她,但仍然被我的女儿迪克西,
Dixieland,完成,加上双手发球,由一位温布尔登双
网球冠军认证。
我女儿的网球生涯基本上是一帆风顺达到顶部,直到
"美国出生"的浮渣文化感染了她,她自我停止她的网
球生涯,因为"她不要别人把她看得高于实际的自己为
了网球"。只有移民和美国的第一代可以一直打到世界
最高点,而她是一代半,因我是跟父母来美的。
这让我错误地认为我还可以开发一个完美的乒乓球风
格,并成为像塞莱斯一样的即时冠军,因为我们对我
女儿遭受的美国浮渣文化,有免疫力。
 好吧,我错了!它让我陷入了难以想象的更糟糕的自
我折磨。我仍然不得不承认,在我还活着的年岁,这
还是顶有趣的一件事。
                                         

                                               我的乓夫状态
乓夫就是完美。所以它总是不完美的。让我来解释一
下原因?
乓夫的开展就像股票交易。低买高卖。在这里,我们
在低时受苦,在高时变法。当乓夫玩得太厉害时,我
们会遭受失望,羞辱和堕落的演习。当新的瑕疵暴露
时,这将改善乓夫的程度。然后我们改变不完美的演
奏方式,让它再次发挥不好。
在过去的20年里,我经历了大约1000座山峰和山谷。
只有桨设计经历了100次重大升级。在11分的乒乓
球比赛中,微小的变化可能会让我减少大约3分,而
主要的变化可能会让我下降10分。
现在,回顾过去,我必须是历史上发展最快的球员,
因为我已经提高了10 x 100 + 3 x 900 = 4700分!计算
结果是4700 /(20 x 365)= 0.65点/天,或者我的提
升速度是11 / 0.65 = 16.9,或者说整整一场比赛的时
间超过2周。
但今天,99%的乒乓球运动员从未改善过。为什么,
另一个快速改进者,弗雷迪加布里埃尔,我曾经帮助
过一次,每月提高1点,直到他拥有它并且在3个嘴
之后停下来,在他的余生中重新磨练他现有的不完美
风格。
哎呀,我几乎忘记了我的第一个也是唯一一个pongfu
学生Jamie。 她非常有才华,经过一个月的学习,她
从一个从来没有打过殴打她叔叔的人,这个叔叔一生
都在娱乐。这个秘密原来是她是一名天空瑜伽专家,
能够通过不可思议的灵活性环绕自己,这是一个真正
可以使用的功能。 但她经常疲惫甚至生病,皮肤上有
蓝色和黑色斑点。 事实证明她每天只能玩半小时。 
所以,我们需要先解决她的健康问题。
杰米开始做功夫
所以,座右铭是:不要试图改变乒乓球!
                                   PONGFU - THE ROAD TO PERFECTION
But this road, it is paved with step stones of 
disappointments.
Resilience to disappointments is the measure of a man. 
But seldom any man would like to be measured.  And in 
the name of happiness, most have formed a cult of 
imperfection.  Thus, the pursue of imperfection has been 
the most popular pastime of modern time. 
In my own pursue of a perfect way to play ping pong, I 
have plunged myself into an infinite pool of 
disappointments, humiliations and a life of worth.
After 20 years of struggle, in order to rid of the 
imperfections in my game, I had to make numerous 
changes in my game.  The changes constitute trashing 
the old and replacing with something new.  This is a 
impossibly difficult task for any seasoned player.
The most memorable example of such an effort I have 
seen is the case of Pete Sampras, while as a top tennis 
protégé, switching from a two-handed back hand to a 
one-handed. Others might think the switching is what 
made him the best tennis player in history.  But my 
frequent trips to hell and back from switching tell me it's 
the unbearable humiliation from coming back from the 
humiliatingly low ranking, that has developed his mental 
stamina that made him the Champ.
And I should mention in passing, the kind of all one-
handed tennis of the likes of Pete Sampras, Roger 
Federer and Ivan Lendl, is the perfect men's tennis style; 
but it's the all two-handed tennis of Monica Seles, which 
took a German's knife into the back to stop her, yet still 
having been perfected by my daughter, Dixie, with a two-
handed serve, certified by a Wimbledon double tennis 
champion, is the perfect tennis style for women.
My daughter's tennis career was basically a smooth ride 
straight to the top, until the born-in-USA scum culture 
set in(only immigrants and first-generation made to the 
top, while Dixie is one and a half generation).  That mis-
led me to think that I could also develop a perfect ping 
pong style for me and become an instant champion, like 
the immigrant Seles, as we are immune to the scum 
culture my daughter suffered.
 Well, I was so wrong!  It led me to the worse self-
inflicted torture imaginable.  Still I must admit it's been 
fun while I am still alive.  
                                         

                                               PONGFU STATUS
Pongfu is perfection.  So, it would always be imperfect.  
Let me explain why?
The development of pongfu is like stock trading.  You buy 
low and sell high.   Here we suffer when low and change 
when high.  We suffer the disappointments, humiliation 
and drop-dead drills, when pongfu is played out badly.  
This would improve pongfu to the point when new 
imperfections are exposed.  Then we change the 
imperfect way of playing to make it play bad again.  
In past 20 years, I have gone through about 1000 peaks 
and valleys.  Just the paddle design has gone through 100 
major upgrades.  In a ping pong game of 11 points, the 
minor changes could drop me by about 3 points, and the 
major changes could drop me by 10 points.  
Now, looking back, I must be the fastest improving player 
in history, for I had improved 10 x 100 + 3 x 900 = 4700 
points!  That calculated to be 4700/(20 x 365) = 0.65 
point/day, or my speed of improvement is 11/0.65  =16.9, 
or one whole game in little more than 2 weeks.
But today, 99% of ping pong players never improve.  Why, 
the other fast improver, Freddie Gabriel, that I helped 
once, improved 1 point per month, until he had it and 
stopped after 3 mouths, going back to honing on his 
existing imperfect style the rest of his life.
Oops, I almost forgot Jamie, my first and only pongfu 
student.  She's so talented that she, from someone never 
played to beating her uncle who played recreationally all 
his life, after one month of learning.  The secret turned 
out to be that she's a sky-yoga expert, capable of wrap 
around herself through uncanny flexibility, a feature that 
pongfu can really make use.  But she got exhausted and 
even sick , blue and black spots on the leg.  It turns out 
she could only play half hour a day.  So, we need to cure 
her health problem first.

So, the motto is: Don't ever try to change ping pong!
