I have a player I coach at the 2000 level using Japanese Penhold. He was trained when he was young and has a wicked loop (just ask my son). However, he is getting a bit older, slower, & heavier. Anybody know any videos of Japanese penhold players using inside out loops or a reverse penhold backhand with this grip? Any & all suggestions are welcome. He has amazing balance and currently claims he can only loop with VERY heavy topspin or an almost no spin loop variation.
Here is a video with him playing:

Thanks in advance,

Here's a video that shows a number of inside-out penhold loops, including ones at .12, .35 (two in a row), .43 (several in that rally), 1:02, and so on.

Here's a video that shows reverse penhold backhand in slow motion.

 
Here's a video that shows both reverse penhold backhands and loops against block.
