      In Korea, generally, you buy a portion of meat. Often, 2 portions are enough for a grown man. I could eat comfortably in a Korean restaurant in Korea for under 20 usd even in Seoul.

      In USA, everyone is crazy about all you eat unlimited, so many Korean restaurants do that... the ones that do not offer a "set" or combo deal... in the end, the restaurant gets more money that way.
      There is nothing quite like Korean BBQ. Cooked on a grill right in front of you. With the Kimchi, lettuce and all the other stuff. Der, I can't believe we never went to eat at 32nd St in Manhattan. We do have to do that next time you are in NYC.

But if you have some safety spin, you will use the shot much more in matches. Try swinging to contact both the right side, the back side and the left side of the ball, people usually develop a preference after seeing which one gives them more quality and safetly.
      My first words would also be contact too far in front... however, one can extend strike zone forward and use lower arm and still make a consistent effective shot... which he does... so it isn't a national crime.

      Still, I am with NL in that the baseline strike point should be less far in front as shown in the vid.

      Weekly report: last week we lost our "revenge match". One of us injured his shoulder in the first singles match and our strongest player was sick and played with fever. We put up a good fight in the beginning, but after we lost in just the second singles round, the motivation was gone. I am not satiesfied with my performance as usual, but I am proud of my first singles match. I played a chopper and after losing quite badly the first two set I stood up and won in the end. The last three set all went over 10 points. I changed my strategy as neither trying to play safely and trying to end the point as quickly as possible didn't work out. So I decided to only loop with 70% strenght and try to loop everything that's reasonable (one/two loop, one push strategy failed). This way our match lasted an hour, multiple times with 15-20 consecutive loops and the majority of the points over 5 loops. The chopper was extremely safe, but couldn't chop with strong backspin. Who have seen my recent video can figure that 70% power is still decent, so I am happy about the consistency and the fact that I was able to restrain myself and not go RSM style.
      I couldn't practice the week at the club, but continued the shadow practice. My form is getting better but probably it's won't make a difference during matchplay. Yet

      Carl, we always ended up at a nearby Chinese place... the one time all of us agreed to eat Korean, it was too late - closing time.

      A few of the places on 32nd St close at 5am. But I remember one time it being later than anyone was willing to go except for you and me.

      We will have to make it happen next time. Korean BBQ is better than anything.

      here is one rather high scale Korean restaurant in Tokyo
      https://www.jojoen.co.jp/en/#menu

      in a regular one, on average prices may be 20% lower.

      If you go outside Tokyo, or far its center prices will be even lower.
