In para table tennis, there are a variety of strategies and techniques to offset the unique disabilities of each player. I look forward to being able to compete against the world's top players at international competitions. (Iwabuchi)

Strong points

"My forte is blocking close to the table, followed by a counter attack. I am also very good at serving in a variety of ways, and counter attacking the rally. Please keep an eye out for my trademark fist pumps when I score!"
