At the moment i play chinese penhold. I have seen videos on the japanese looks very similar to me. is this true? And also , i am mainly a defensive player that plays alot of spin shots and serves and attacks on my forehand with a lot of topspin when i can. which grip and blade would be more suited to my play?

Hi Harry,

Both grips are legitimate and can be used for th etype of play you are talking about.  You need to put both of them in your hand and see which feels more comfortable.  This is the main difference.
