How to Play Badminton : The Smash Shot in Badminton

How to Play Badminton : The Smash Shot in Badminton


Hi my name is Bryan; welcome back to expertvillage.com.
Now we are going to talk about doing a smash shot. First off it will be the same concept
as we did the basic one, two, three, position. Just like pulling the arrow in a bow. We are
going to start off in a base position. Move back side ways. The left hand serves as a
guide. The right hand which we will aim. Same concept as a volleyball players spike and
a tennis player makes the serve. Where they place out shoulders, push back, target, and
the guide which is the left hand point of contact would be one o’clock. Which is on
top of me. This would be twelve o’clock, and this is one o’clock—the swing will follow
through. In doing the smash, we need wrist action this time. The action of the wrist
which will push the bird towards down the ground. It is smash action. Same position
of the bird which is going to be the smash zone. The sweet spot of the racket. Let me
show you slow one the guide, the swing, the wrist action, and the follow through. Very
important would be the wrist action. If there is no wrist action in doing the smash the
bird is either going to go high or go to a different direction. Wrist action is very
important in doing a smash. Towards down to the ground follow through. Very important
rule so it is a follow through the weight transfer. We get power on the way transfer.
Not everything on the arm.

  1. Correction : Peter Rasmussen not Kenneth Jonassen

  2. Thank you Expert Village, That was helpfull for me.

  3. maybe u should warm up next time… which is just as important as any practice for any sports…

  4. this video didn't help. Your not even gripping the racket correct. Your doing the pan handle grip. Also you never have a strait arm when you smash or else you'll just miss by a mile

  5. stfu its quite hard to smash from that distance from the net especially with his length/not jumping

  6. Haha, are u a singaporean?

  7. haha i see no real weight transfer during your smash because your right leg does not move forward or lift off the ground, you compensate by moving your left leg and hips back, and this will move your weight backwards.

  8. 1.hold your breath .

    6.if u didnt lose air ur a great kisser!

  9. all these expert village videos are hilarious

  10. Its only basic technique ok….perfecting it is another story. Besides….wouldnt it look bad if he hit the net in this video? He has to slow it down for beginners to follow

  12. he's got bad technique…

  13. Female shot !!! In estonian: emane 😀

  14. since he could have done more takes of his demo, this shite smash is probably the best he can do. he uses too much elbow anyway. and he doesnt talk about racket grip, which is essential

  15. YOUR NOT supose to have ANY WRIST action when u smash it takes all the power away for it. and they say this is "EXPERT VILLAGE????????"

  16. Don't be ridiculous. A powerful smash REQUIRES wrist action.

    Not that I'm rooting for the guy; his technique isn't that great. =.=

  17. yeah but when u use ur full body motion to bring out the power its the snap of the wrist to give the angle to the shuttle. both of u are right =]

  18. i smash using the top part not the 'sweet' part izzit ok?

  19. Eh wen i smash i dont jump mostly is it ok??

  20. yea its normal.. jump smash is more of an advanced technique

  21. a strong wrist action results in the level of power in the smash …. if both players have the right technique, the one with greater wrist action , will smash hardest … besides in badminton.. u often get positioned in a way that u cannot use the whole body and still want to deal out a hard smash.. therefore the key in smashes often lies in the wrist action :>

  22. It also depends on your speed ,strength and your racket

  23. Jumping as you smash gives you more downward angle. Harder to return. also, The angle you twist your wrist down towards whilst smashing will give you extreme angled smashes which are almost impossible to return.

  24. smashing is more of timing than strength.

  26. I see…It's easy to understand. I'll try it 😀

  27. lawl this guy;s smash is so fail speed.

  28. holy fuck that slow motion makes him look like a jiggling blob. Maybe you shouldn't teach you're crappy angled smashes…

  29. oh too impressed for smack like tht.i also wish for a ppl to teach me.i smack like a kid

  30. i jst started playing badminton~
    to me his smash is @[email protected]
    perhaps his height is lower than the net, so he cant do it downward smash? =
    i mostly see ppl jump when they smash, izzit?

  31. its easy to smash when have the right time, angle and power… I prefer to jump even a bit so that the shuttle would land properly..

  32. Basically in badminton when doing a smash shot u just want it to just reach over the net not too high as this will make it harder for the person to return the shot as it is lower.

  33. bwahaha, your observation is so correct. talk about teacher…

  34. it depends which way the clock is facing. The way his body was facing 1 o'clock would be correct

  35. Check the video badmintonfootworkaamir15,

  36. I love playing badminton, but I find when I'm playing people they do a smash and I can never swing my arm round quick enough so I can do an under-arm return 🙁

  37. Actually, I read this commend last week and did, stiffin my wrist, it gives me more power at the best angle 😀

  38. Dude you goona hurt your wirst,that's for the pro people to use it. For beginner, use your forehand grip

  39. are you aamir ghaffer

  40. how about if left handle…?

  41. you have a Raket Arc Saber 10? Oo

  42. on your channel you were 25 in 2008 [lol] but you're okay for a 15 toichivah dude.

  43. a year 7 kid can play way better

  44. yor smash is just fast bcause yor an adult

  45. god this guy sucks

  46. expert village? how about Crapvillage or Noobvillage

  47. err… dude… you're not even jumping… it helps generate power AND ANGLE…. which you could use a lot of

  48. i can do better than you…..

  49. bad angle need better wrist movement

  50. anyone can wear all yonex..

  51. just saying, could even be replicas. i mean, apacs racquets and shoes look on video the same as yonex. but anyway if he is a coach then they invest in yonex brands because its worth the money to look professional for respect

  52. this is the most fail badminton video I have ever seen in my life…I am a badminton coach and its sad seeing this

  53. im asian but i have to say he talks funny.

  54. These expertvillage videos suckkkk

  55. where i live the best racquet i can get is a 40 dollar carlton 🙁

  56. You are SHIT!!!!!!!

  57. Beginners don't teach….LOL!~

  58. Most of the shots he has shown were out, I believe hahahaha…. Great techniques for seven-year-old children who have no ideas of what badminton is!

  59. @blazemxee but if u dont use ur wrist, how is the shutter going to go down?

  60. Make a more helpful vid then stop complain ….

  61. Hes smashes sucks hes tutorial sucks. Expert village blows

  62. @shadowsabere xDXD loll

  63. The title should be "How not to play Badminton" …

  64. @blazemxee dude iam confused on how to hold a bandminton racket

  65. i dont think this video is good, but wrist is actually important to make shuttle go down..since i got shoulder injury, i start to use wrist more, n its work

    if theres any other smash technique, without using wrist,can anyone pls upload

  66. @ebar86 but the bad things is, it hurt ur wrist early on b4 u get used to it

  67. Can't wait to beat you so I can show you how INEFFECTIVE your smash video is.

    Seriously, where is the angle in your "smash?"

  68. i wonder how the expertvillage can upload of 138,793 videos in few years?

  69. wow, smash to back court!! nice smash dude!!

  70. This sucks. No supinate? pronate? just "wrist action"? he doesn't know what he's talking about. lame. -.-

  71. if you seriously want to learn good technique check out this site (including lessons from peter gade) bestoncourt(d0t)com

  72. @blazemxee i suggest not locking ur wrist or else u'll injure ur shoulder trying to make the shot steeper, or maybe your wrist cause some might not be strong enough 😀

  73. @Latezk1 smashes are the deadliest shots in the world class level, even if its at the baseline, if an opponent manages to deliver a full smash(not half-smash) it would almost certainly kill

  74. Unfortunately there is a lot of misconception surrounding the techniques involved in badminton. I would attribute this to coaches and commentators saying that a power shot involves a wrist action, which isn't technically correct. When someone hears wrist action, they believe that they need to snap their wrist down in order to generate power. This results in less power and deception.

    Here's a good video that breaks down the steps in finer detail:
    youtube.com/watch?v=HNVC5PVJyPQ

  75. The worst footwork ever seen

  76. @blazemxee

    The essence of using wrist is indeed correct and proper.

  77. wow very bad smash demonstration at the end, he doesnt even transfer his body for more power in the smash…

  78. The left hand does not fucking aim. Its there for balance. 149 likes, 102 dislikes says alot… 149 people clearly don't know how to play badminton.

  79. @GregsPCs Obviously not you fucking idiot, thats why they watch these videos durrr

  80. Thanks Brian, that is the best smash explaination I have found yet on youtube.
    I will try it tonight.

  81. where the hell is the jump ur not 10 years old anymore

  82. thse videos are awsome they tell spep to step how to do tricks .

  83. If you make your upcoming videos in 720p or 1080p its gone be awsome atleast make it 500p like that . I like your videos very much it is a good explanation for the batminton smash .

  84. wow they have allot of videos

  85. your smash shot can't be that good if the opponent is passing all the shots back to you….

  86. Sounds like a gun shot lol.
