Badminton Footwork: Right Front Corner (Type 1)

Badminton Footwork: Right Front Corner (Type 1)


Footwork Skills – front right corner (type I) I am going to show you the type I movement the footwork from base to forehand net there are 5 or 6 different types of movements depending on different situations but this is the standard one and the most important step in badminton for this corner remember this is not the only 1 type there are 4 other kind of types, the one I am going to show you today is the 1 of 5 which is most standard way so if a player can understand this one he or she will be able to do the other types of movement to this corner because the other ones come from this standard movement now here you are here, center the first step to this one is one the meaning of one is to see where and then the next step is left goes side or backward the reason for if this one goes side your body remains same backwards also remaining same your balance remains same that way but I disagree with the idea after this one goes forward as you see it my chest is moving and then moving so this is good movement for field train not for badminton badminton need to move faster in short spaces so first step 1 2 third one 3 watch this 1 2 3 or shuttle goes deeper 1 2 3 this one, see the shuttle cock, where the shuttle cock is if shuttle is short, you go small and go if shuttle goes deeper, go and hit after hit 1 2 3 hit there are many ways to get back but today I am going to show you the recovery hit recover and then another one that way, because small recovery step my timing will be faster, my weight will be divided so its less demanding compare 1 2 3 4 ready or 1 2 3 4 it takes too long too much weight moves from one place to the other place so its difficult to move again so standard type I movement is 1 2 3 4 ready 1 2 3 4 ready 1 2 3 4 – 1 go so in badminton the starter step, the finish step is equal the finish step is the starting step because he has to go again ok watch this watch my legs 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 ok focus on his movement go 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 ready 1 2 3 4 kill now – go 1 2 3 4 kill bang one more ready go 1 2 3 4 – kill yes as you see it start two feet together push off he finish the last step two feet together why? because then he can change direction in any way now no recovery step go deep here go shadow 1 2 3 that’s recovery, no recovery one big step go 1 2 3 yeah no recovery step is right some times for in doubles, when he is coming closer when shuttle moves faster but in singles one step from the net to the base is too big too demanding ok watch this go 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 – 1 2 3 4 same now watch this why the final step, number 5 is important that number 5 becomes starter step because he land, landing two feet together he can change any where I will show you watch this ready smash same way go 1 2 3 4 – 1 2 3 yeah more one 1 2 3 4 – 1 2 3 bang net play go 1 2 3 4 – 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 – kill it 1 2 3 4 5 6 remember that is not the only one there are few more different types depending on different situations but today that is most standard way to do it

    net is to my back so how can i hit the shuttle under arm…. and whats the
    name of this specific shot…plz reply thanxxx lovv ur tips

  3. 1. When your opponent have option of flick your net shot, you should stay bit away from the net but sometime players make wrong decision the way you just explained. Two things have to be done. 1. You should move to the shuttlecock the way whicxh make your impact point side of your body not behind of your body. 2. You must create space between your body and the shuttlecock.

  4. Remember your arm length and your racket length, you need to make space to use them. If two boxers are too cross each other no body can make counter punch. If you can do that you can make reasonable length of backhand clear. I am not sure if I have understood your question right. Lee
