I have a question...

in  the swing,  the hips must be firm ?

when i prepare and when i stroke the ball, the hips must be in front of at the side wall?

i have seen a lot of player, and seems that the hips are particulary ramy ashour and el hindi seems that is the movement of the arm, not the hips or the shoulder that generate power.. is correct my observation?

the last thing...i have noticed that in the "modern" swing the power come from to the arm and forearm, not from the the shoulder must be firm in front of the side wall...and the power is generated from the pronation/supination of the forearm.. is correct?

for me this is an important thing, i hope you can help me...

thanks again for your precious teaching,

If you think about "weight transfer" as in throwing, rather than hip movement.  Experiment with side-arm throwing with hips fixed, and then try with weight transfer.  Then, try to throw into a defined area and see which one is more accurate/power, etc.. Ready right through the above link and in particular weight transfer which is a way down the page.
