Table tennis, as one of the most popular sports in China, has grown considerably since its developed in the 19th century in England. The biomechanics of the research methods in many sports has been widely used, for understanding of sports and technology and improve sports played an important role Fast break and curving ball technology is this game’s core technology. In this study, we based on fast break and curving ball features of kinematic to reveal the table tennis forehand techniques. Eighteen male volunteers were participated in this tests, the speed of the racket during the playing was recorded through Vicon Motion Capture System. The action was divided into three major phases: back swing, attack and follow through. At the end of back swing stage, break and curl technologies, the speed parameter shows some differences. While the peak speed in ball contact frame, the speed of curling ball was significantly higher than the fast break. Further study could be carried out in detailing analysis at sub-stage of the action for integral considering.
