Badminton-Backhand Clear (16) The Best Way to Practice Backhand Clear, Step by Step

Badminton-Backhand Clear (16) The Best Way to Practice Backhand Clear, Step by Step


Now, how to practice step by step ok, first one caught the wrist tapping has to be done so, you caught the wrist like this, no like that like that, face straight, no like that this is difficult lets say you want to learn backhand clear fresh ok, side by side caught like this, so the palm is facing there like this, your partner moves there racket face is facing there, ok can you see it like this, throw the shuttle here what you have to do, don’t worry about the feet just wait and tap ya, little longer tap tap set, tap so practice tap ya wait, tap ok, set when the shuttle comes, back and tap ok, that’s the number 1 step again, but you have to caught that way like this, yes, no like that look, no like this I can’t hit it, you can’t hit it look you can’t caught, caught ok, from behind not forward caught, stay caught ya left arm, hold it like that tap tap tap tap ok, after this one in order to give you the confidence and improve your power use racket head cover like this, by the way this is my face [laughs] this is similar [laughs] ok, using your cover on caught the wrist, ya same, face, face the shuttle cock like that, tap tap tap tap tap ok, so you have the some idea of tapping ok, using caught wrist ok, now the arm must not be like that, near to you just small, not sure, no like that no like that, already stretched ok, not fully stretched, aggressive and more enthusiastic ya, feed side like this after that take it off without cover do it again you will be surprised shuttle will go longer now then you will believe in your wrist after that next stage is move side set, back and hit like this ok, 1 2 3 so you learn the timing of hit set – back – hit so 1 2 3 1 is hold, 2 is back and 3 is hit watch this 1 2 3 1 2 3 set – back – hit 1 2 3 remember 2 is slow and 3 fast not fast – fast, this is wrong 1 23 1 2 3 1 2 3 fast 1 2 3 1 2 3 remember, in this practice you must tap bring your racket backwards in order to hit your shuttle forward watch this 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 important thing now, you must stay caught here, say caught that way, do not release, if you release it, you do that no, caught ok, so 1 2 3 like this the last one, like that you can face there two side step and then hit look, 1 2 and then hit hit and land together ok, watch all in one now watch my feet 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 ok, important point while you are moving your racket should point no like that, like this wrong way no like this, like that your racket should move to the shuttle cock with step, 1 2 3 1 2 3 if you feel happy, use cover again same go, 1 2 3 1 2 3 when you do cover training, you have to make small action if you make big one you can’t hit it 1 2 3 do that 20 times, take cover off 1 2 3 1 2 3 after you practice those elements, last one you have to practice in real way ya, easy, this is you, set posture, ok two steps and hit ok, face that way, ok not that way ok, keep going continue 1 2 3 4 remember its better to hit shuttle cock shorter with right technique rather than try to hit longer with wrong technique, because if you hit clear here in right way, right way then quickly you can hit like this but if you try to force it with wrong technique you will not improve, so stick with those techniques doing again, try, try and try again I am 100% sure you can hit backhand clear, its easier 3 times easier than forehand clear, because its kind of forming up, caught the wrist set punch feet, ok I know you will be successful in your backhand clear

  1. good job Lee. . . . .

  2. Mr.Lee !! I've tried !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but i can't do it !!!!!!!!!! 

  3. Mr.Lee where can i meet you

  4. thank you mr.lee……..i learned forehand by seeing your vedios ……i hope by seeing this vedio i can hit a good backhand shots

  5. maybe a stupid question but i ask it anways to make it clear for me:
    for the backhand clear, i do not use my wrist as i would when waving somebody goodbye but like a dj turning tables, right? could not think about better examples ^^

  6. Dear Sir,
    Please also share your views on how to have variations on backhand like short clears and cross court clears…

  7. MR. Lee sir, when I'm playing back hand shot, i'm not able to send the shuttle to the other end, instead shuttle is going very slowly making the opponent comfortable to hit a smash…….
    how should i get out of it??

  8. very interesting, will try this out. Have always run round my backhand at all costs, so only hit it when its flat and use the power to drop it fast to net. Whenever coached the backhand this simple basic method was not shown…. however from listening it appears my main issue was trying to force the shuttle to the back.
    I will now try and develop my overhead backhand.

  9. my main problem is timing- I get most of the backhand with over-the-head forehand shots unless I'm caught on the wrong foot and have to backhand because I am late [this is what backhand is for, isn't it?!]. but then I move too fast and get either too close to the shuttle or have too much time to think about the hit and screw it up; as I know my clears are not that good, most of the time I make a fast smash/drop that sometimes catches opponent by surprise as it goes fast towards their body instead of a slow drop [safer shot for me]. any suggestions about improving my timing for clears? thanks!

  10. Mr. Lee i wanna see your backhand smash, i know how to do but i wanna learn more ^^

  11. Thank you sir!! This really helped me! 🙂 You are the best coach….

  12. Coach, which grip is best for the backhand clear?

  13. sir r u interested in opening a badminton court in india

  14. Hello Coach Lee! I noticed you said you were in Canada? Where in Canada are you currently playing?! I too am from Canada and am just curious.

    Thanks Lee!

  15. it really good . . 

  16. Hi Coach Lee,  may I ask why the grip for the backhand clear in this video is the backhand net kill grip?  In your Backhand Drive video you advocate the neutral grip. Can the neutral grip be used for the backhand clear for more flexibility (so you can also do a crosscourt backhand clear)?

  17. Hi Lee…voice quality is not good….if you could improve it, it would be good………………

  18. Tutorial for left handers? I found it difficult to do a backhand and I can't a left handed tutorial

  19. Dear Coach Lee, 
    I do not have words to thank you. You are such an amazing coach who has helped me change my view about playing badminton. I used to play a lot when I was a teen and used to be considered a very good player locally. Needless to say that I used to play in wrong ways. Recently I have come across your training videos and started regretting that if I could get your lessons 15 years ago!
    However, I have decided that I will teach my daughter to play badminton with the help of your lessons. (She is 5)
    I pray that you keep doing well and keep helping people like this. May god always keep you well. 

    Thanks ( Million million times)

  20. after this backhand clear shot should the grip be changed back to neutral or it must be kept in backand only???

  21. Mr. Lee unfortunately my college does not have a closed badminton court so i have to play in the open where i am not able effectively hit the B-clear since the shuttle wobbles mid-air. Please suggest some tips Sir!

  22. sir can uperform this one more time like how u would do in a match.i jst want to see how to perform the same thing.btw realy gud tutorial.

  23. excellent coach…. see his other videos as-well, you will know….

  24. Coach. Thanks for the video. Can you please guide us on how to hit the backhand by covering the court (i.e. incase you have to run)?

  25. hi Lee thanks for this video. I wonder in your next video will you be able to show:
    1. how to hold the backhand grip for the backhand clear shots
    2. can you do a slow motion of how your racket hand movement from a different position eg. may be the video can show your movement from your left side way. I would like to understand how to make the stroke. is that from inside body outwards or its actual moving like an arc from bottom to top
    3. after you have hit the shuttle your racket seems to stop and did not follow through. Did you have to apply strong force to stop it?
    Thanks in advance.

  26. thanks sir . 😀 

  27. Thanks for you videos. I'll try this step by step. You are encouraging.

  28. Just wanted to thank you for being kind enough to share your skills to all badminton lovers at large.
    You are truly great to do this !!!

  29. Hey coach I've been watching your videos as I have recently started playing badminton, great stuff keep it up!
    However I do want to point out – you don't mention anything about the grip and the elbow position in this video, which was a bit misleading for me at first because I followed this and still saw no improvement. The grip and elbow are really important! You should definitely link this to your more recent 'backhand grip' video to help beginners understand.

  30. Sir, i've seen another backhand clear video, and i found the grip is different with yours. The grip he uses is the one you use in backhand deceptive shot video. I'm confused, and i want to know your opinion about this.

  31. I'm currently a varsity player, or the representative of our school to compete with other schools for badminton. Your videos are very helpful to me sir. You inspire me 😀 Thank you!

  32. Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei show us the best of badminton, Coach Lee teaches us how to achieve the best inside us. Thanks very much, you are great.

  33. Sir I have learned a lot from your videos but I am confuse which racket I shall buy so, can you please tell me which racket should a 15 old buy who want 60% power 40% control and flexibility ( bankability) as much as you have in your racket which you use in your videos

  34. sir can u demonstrate backhand smash also

  35. Hi Coach Lee, I gained great interest in badminton just recently, and hence took up some private lessons to learn the basics. However, the backhand clear that my coach taught me is that my thumb should be on the edge of the handle instead of being flat, and that i have to lift my elbow up and swing my arm, instead of just tapping. May I know if that method is wrong, or is it for a different purpose? Thanks in advance.

  36. great explanations! I will try tonight! thanks 🙂

  37. Coach Lee how could you clear it when the shuttle is already net height all the way near the back lines?

  38. Would be good if you could get a slo-mo camera?

  39. Coach Lee, I have an injury on my right elbow (side of the elbow) since a couple of weeks. I think it is due to my technique, can you give me some cue to help me please (sorry for my english)

  40. Dear Lee,
    You made one comment during the demonstration. Back hand clear is at least 3 times easier than the forehand clear. Will you please why? What is it that makes forehand clear harder by 3 times? Thanks in advance.

  41. Coach Lee, my personal coach says that using the way you demonstrated would injure the arm as you are tugging at it?

  42. Lee Sir i am Bidyut from India and i am very thankful to you that your videos has immensely helped and motivated me. It is only because of your videos that after 2 years of serious practice i can now easily clear backhand shot. There is nobody to teach me except you. You are my Guru. Please continue your videos. I love you very much Sir. I hope in my life I can meet you.

  43. Hi Coach Lee, does holding or releasing breathe (i.e. breathing technique) before/during hitting affect power generation? Thank you for your advice 🙂

  44. Coach Lee..your videos provide immense inspiration to people like us who love the sport of Badminton and play it part time. I have learnt so much in the last year just by watching your videos. In this video what is the tension of your racket(lbs)? Your backhand is so good and i have never seen anyone besides the top badminton players hit with such power and speed. Is it just the string tension or wrist power as well. Would love to hear back from you!

    God Bless you!

  45. hi coach.. u videos really improves my skills and my game play.. really thank you soo much.. especially on the backhand clear and smashing skills. i also recommended my friends to watch ur videos oso to improve their skills.

  46. This VDO is very helpful, i like the way you teach because it looks really easy.
    By the way, i have many problems and one of those is my defensing.
    I really dont know my feet step and also the way to grab the racket. when I defense, should I grab the racket like backhand? if how about they hit to my forehand so how to defense?
    i wish i could be your student, but unfortunately I'm not living in Canada.

    Thanks so much Master Lee.

  47. Thanks a lot Coach Lee.. I have been trying to improve my backhand power for more than a year now.. My backhand had definitely improved, but still i am not able to drive the shuttle to the opponents rear court. I had couple of doubts, would be great if you could help
    1. Should my elbow point to shuttle before the swing?
    2. In this video i didn't see much follow through action

  48. Thanks Mr. Lee for Your training on backhand in a simplified manner which is very interesting. Thanks for your valuable instructions.

  49. 2:39  Finally he smiles 🙂

  84. Your videos are vry helpful sir. Very clear with the techniques and instructions. Thanks a lot sir!!!

  85. Where can i buy the Racket Cover?

  86. As a child and teenager I used to use tennis rackets for badminton because badminton rackets broke too soon and were too expensive to buy new ones. It developed hand and wrist strength quite well. Interesting to see how this coach gives and advice to use head cover or heavier rackets for developing strength.

  87. Cover can harm racquet or not

  88. thanks for all your videos, you got a very strong wrist, bet you’re doing martial arts
