Badminton “professor” Xiao Jie Former World-Champion Zhao JianHua Content: effective Footwork technique how do you hit a proper drop shot; Backhand net shot… I am unable to hit a deep forehand clear even if I use all my strength, it only goes to midcourt For your forehand clear, your shoulder is not moving; it’s very rigid. This can be corrected with the right techniques. I’ll tell you in a bit how to improve this aspect Let me make a suggestion. As you cannot clear from to the backcourt as you don’t have the power… Drop shots require less power then clearing or smashing, and it’s still very effective. In your case, I think there are three aspects you can work on. #1, change your footwork so you can get there in time. #2, as you don’t have the power, learn to drop shot so you can attack effectively from the backcourt #3, learn to slice the shuttle effectively at the net this will enable you to dictate and control the game. How to move from the back corner to the front opposite corner… First of all, you must take big steps. Secondly, compared with men or even other women players, you may have to take a few more steps. Now, how do you move from here to that front corner? After you hit the shuttle, you land at this angle, then, I take, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 steps, and you’re at the net Turn your body sideways, skip to the back corner, hit, return to the centre Right foot first, left foot, lunge, and hit. Scissor jump, then when you return to the centre of the court, you use your left foot first, 1 step, 2 step, skip. That’s right (Woman at centre of court), now 1 step, 2 step, 3 step. That’s right, this is how the footwork works. You need to make bigger steps. How does this work? See, if you’re moving backwards without turning your body, you move very slowly and your steps are very small. Turn your body sideways, then skip, and you’re at the backcourt already. So, turn, skip to the back, jump for the shot, then 1, 2, 3 steps back to the centre. What other steps need to be large? Moving forward, 1. step is large, not the 2., then the 3. step needs to be a lunge, your body also needs to be at an angle in order for the lunge to be far enough. So do I need to bend my knees first before lunging? Don’t think about this, just do what’s natural, similar to kicking forward. Both feet need to hit the ground at the same time so you have the power to move forward. “Leave” your non-racquet hand behind to give you more reach. two points, you need to turn around when move backward you also need to turn when move forward for forehand move from this corner to that corner, also the same turn your body first, make a shuffle step, then we are here then take the shot, move back to the centre start from right foot, one, two, three that’s it turn, move, hit the shuttle start from right foot let’s try it right, good return to centre, start from right foot see, you are already here Turn the body and do a shuffle step are the key points to increase both speed and distance for moving backward
The last step of forward move also can benefit from turning the body let’s talk about your backcourt shots It’s your shoulder movement prevent you have a quality shot you didn’t rotate it to the limit, a bit stiff the backswing is not so smooth to improve it, you can stretch it before play see, you can put the hands on and stretch to improve your flexibility this is one way another way is to stretch like this do you feel you are more flexible now? when you are doing backcourt shots, you should rotate to this angle you also can do exercise like this a bit difficult for me you can practice more later just do more exercise to help your shoulder more flexible now we learn drop shot drop shot doesn’t need much strength first you need to swing to the highest point at the hitting time, loose your fingers then slice the shuttle drop shot also need fast speed, a bit power, and need to make the shot deep use the sting bed to slice the shuttle head and the hitting is like a wrapping you may make the mistake that use less power to do drop shot then your whole action is slow it will be easy for the other side to guess your intention don’t move slower use the same power as you do high clear just the last contact point is slicing let’s try it good, but the wrist didn’t turn enough the shot should be above my body your movement is too long the shot should be finished here, there is no power when you swing down the whole power is released at the time hitting the shuttle the power should be released into front first then downward then the shuttle can fly over the net if you hit down at the first point, the shuttle may hit the net just now we talked about footwork, drop shot, now we learn slice shot net slicing shot is the only technique will make the shuttle rotate two way to do the slice shot first is pull back slicing from left to downward is the racket face up or? it depends on your contact point if you contact point is high, you may do like this if your contact point is low, then your racket should face up the technique is, use this finger, swing the racket slightly from left to downward slice the left side of shuttle head make the shuttle rotate another method is more difficult if the other side make a cross court shot we use this you see my hand shape, like a duck’ mouth from right to left, slice the right side of the shuttle head slicing, from downward to front the first method is from left to right the second is from right to left the second method is difficult you learn the first one first your move is too stiff you should only use the finger to generate power, more flexible 1. use index finger and thumb to generate power
2. the rotation comes from slicing the shuttle
3. the racket angle depends on the contact point you can practice any time when you are free or when you are quite tired after playing game, you can also practice slice shot today we talked about footwork, forehand drop shot and backhand slice shot these three technique can be applied together smoothly when you are playing game, you should make use of your advantage Thx, Ms. Xiao! Not a problem
