Hi, I have seen some people do fake push movements that always tricks me. It looks like they are pushing one way but it goes the other way. I want to know how to do it. A video on how to do this would be nice thanks.

Hi Yoyo,

To make a fake movement you mainly use your head and shoulders to fake the direction.  By moving those parts in one direction and your bat in another it gives the opponent wrong information.  The movements only need to be slight to givve good effect.

Make sure though that you are playing the stroke correctly first before trying to add these fake movements.
