You pull back the mallet at a 45 degree angle towards your opposite side and swipe across the back of the puck aiming at the corner of the goal. If you hit the puck on too much of an angle on the side it will hit the sides of the table becoming a poorly executed bank shot. The bank shot is a shot that hits the side of the table before reaching the opponents goal. In arcades you will often see the puck hit both sides of the table before reaching the goal.
Do not do this. Always aim to hit the bank once. There are two common types of bank shot, the over or under. The most common is the under back shot. This is where the puck hits the side wall and goes behind your opponents mallet and into the goal. This happens when your opponent is defending higher up the table.
To pull off the shot you will want to use wrist power rather than arm power. The main reason being that using your arm rather than a snapping wrist can generate too much power resulting in the puck leaving the table.
A common approach is to hold the mallet an inch or two in front of the goal. Although you can block shots with this approach, it gives you very little time to react to mis-timed blocks and you are prone to leaking goals from ricochets of the mallet. A better approach is to hold the puck 6 to 12 inches in front of you, depending on your air hockey table size.
