Hi Hari,

Not sure what you mean by a Korean push.

Well, generally speaking, if you want to stop someone smashing away your shot easily, you need to keep your shot lower and with more backspin.  The easiest thing to try and change is just the angle of your racquet face on contact.  If it's popping up, you might try closing your racquet angle more.  Try putting some sidespin on your pushes.  Those penhold sidespin pushes can be VERY tricky to return.

yeah i agree with ji-soo. add some variety in your pushes. add some sidespin, backspin, vary the speed, placement, etc. try it and let us know if its effective.
