乓夫状态
功夫是完美的。所以,它总是不完美的。我来解释一
下原因?
乓夫的发展就像股票交易。低买高卖。在这里,我们
在低时受苦,在高时,变。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。
就只拍子的设计经历了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,我必须是历史上有能力去进步最快
的球员,因为我已经进步了10 x 100 + 3 x 900 = 4700
分!计算结果是4700 /(20 x 365)= 0.65分/天,或
者我的提升速度每一盘是11 / 0.65 = 16.9,或者说升
级整整一场比赛要两周。
但今天,99%的乒乓球运动员从未进步过。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分,直到他在3个月之后吃不下
了后停下来,在他的余生中重新回去磨练他现有的不
完美风格。
所以,座右铭是:不要试图改变乒乓球!

乓夫- 完美的道路
但是这十一条,铺满了令人失望的台阶,道路。
对失望的适应力是衡量一个人的数值。但很少有人愿
意接受这种衡量。以快乐的名义,大多数人都形成了
一种不完美的崇拜。因此,对不完美的追求一直是现
代最流行的消遣。
在我自己追求打乒乓球的完美方式的过程中,我陷入
了无限的失望,羞辱,但又价值生命。
经过20年的奋斗,为了摆脱乒乓中的不完美之处,
我不得不在乒乓中做出很多改变。这些变化构成了对
旧事物的破坏,取而代之的是新事物。对于任何经验
丰富的球员来说,这都是一项艰巨的任务。
我见过的这种努力最令人难忘的例子就是皮特桑普拉
斯的情况,而作为一名顶级网球选手,从双手反手转
换为单手反手。其他人可能认为转换让他成为历史上
最好的网球选手。但是从我经常去地狱和回来的经历
告诉我,从低级别排名回归到以前的高峰是无法忍受
的羞辱,这就经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,是男子网球的完美风格;
但女子网球的完美风格是莫妮卡塞莱斯的全双手网球,
后来的用一把德国刀刺入她背后来阻止她打垮整个女
子网球界,但仍然被我的女儿迪克西完善了双手发球,
由温布尔登双人网球冠军认证,是女性最完美的网球
风格。
我女儿的网球生涯基本上是顺利一直到大学的最高点,
直到美国出生的浮渣文化开始(只有移民和第一代到
达过专业最高点,而Dixie是一代半美国人)。这让
我错误地认为我也可以为我自己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,因为我对
我女儿遭受的浮渣文化有免疫力。
 好吧,我错了!它让我陷入了不可想象还更糟糕的自
我折磨。我仍然必须承认,在我还活着的时候,这一
直会是件很有趣的经历。
                                         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.
So, the motto is: Don't ever try to change pingpong!

                                    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 
Seles, as I am 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.
