HI Amekun,

He is putting sidespin on the backhand block.  It is a very difficult shot to play and not one I would recommend everyone to try.  Only once you have developed good control with your block then you can start to play shots like these.  As you can see it can be effective but you are also increasing your chances of making an error.
