  1. You don't even explain why this works …

  2. I'm glad you said that. I was just about to post another video on "how to construct a rally".
    I was at the badminton club just the other day and a friend of mine said the same thing. He said, "you need to break it down a bit more."
    So, hang on and I'll post a video on how to use the triangles and construct a rally sometime before the end of April — I hope.
    Thank you for commenting.

  3. I'm guessing this is for a right handed receiver right?

  4. The triangles work for both right and left handed receiver. It's more about angles (what to hit and why) than what is consider a strong or weak side. There is a part 2 or a second video title — badminton single's strategy using triangles. I think the second video is a lot more clear.

  5. I suck at badminton

  6. 555 that's Thai for LOL — I'm had to take Geometry twice to pass it and I know very little about computers. They took away my ASIAN card long ago.
    Thanks for the correction.

  7. thats wrong if you play like that will be out,the way is like this it depends on the score of you and your enemy,on your right is for the score 2,4,6,8 like that and your left is 1,3,5,7,so if your enemy gets 2 points he will stand at the box of his right if you hit left your enemy will get one point.

  8. it's 4 sides, its not a triangle

  9. good
    but tell us why is it not advisable to hit at the back line ( cross court ) ?
    what are the disadvantages?

  10. Yash, thank you for your question. The disadvantages are spent time and energy. It takes more time for the shuttle to travel diagonally from back corner to back corner. It also takes more energy to hit the shuttle that far. However, the advantages is that it is unexpected, keeping your opponent guessing where you are going to hit. Another advantage is, it is a good way to get away from your "weaker" side (for most of us that's our backhand side or in this case corner). 
    So, you must weight the pro's with the con's and see if a diagonal shot from back corner to back corner is good for you and in what situation.
    I hope this helps, and thank you again for commenting. 

  11. Hi Pratipat, I play Para badminton Wheelchair H2. thank you for your videos. I will use your triangles techniques. Please find and read para badminton rules. Your coaching and knowledge will a lot of player including myself.
    I will shrink the triangles to fit into our singles court. Thanks again

  12. your video is not good because if someone having a good speed will catch up the shuttle fast and hit a smash

  13. Thanks, great explanation. I would add another option to drop to the center to not open up any angles also which you see a lot like to "reset" the point.

  14. Thanks. Very informative

  15. Sure your chalk is big enough? 😛

  16. Hey, nice explanation. A suggestion: try to cut out the parts where you rub the chalk markings.

  17. That figure is called trapezium

  18. Its a trapezoid. Thank you for the video, I have learnt something.
