Reply January 26, 2012 at 3:17 pm I think this just covers the basics. Many people just overdo things when they are beginners. I'm sure the man knows what tricks are! 😉 Reply March 29, 2012 at 10:30 pm how come u dont even look at the birdie and jus hit it Reply March 29, 2012 at 10:42 pm You should be able to loot at the birdie as well as opponent court and opponent rather then just look at the birdie. Lee Reply April 22, 2012 at 2:46 pm coachhh can you jump to next level and actually upload gameplayss lik you with your students or sumthingg Reply April 22, 2012 at 5:17 pm Thank you for your comment. That will be done a little bit later stage I am afraid. After uploading footwork, I am going to upload level doubles, mixed doubles, coaches clips, deceptions, then I am going to deal with match play and tactics corrections on match play. Sorry but plaease wait some more time. Lee Reply April 24, 2012 at 3:13 am That sounds great. I am actually a mix doubless player too. I hope to see some great tutorialss about it Reply May 15, 2012 at 6:54 am hi coach, were you holding the neutral grip? Reply May 15, 2012 at 8:03 am Yes I was. I can not have backhand grip nor forehand grip as I do not have time to change when I am defencing smash. It is possible to defence forehand and backhand with neutral grip. There may be a very little bit of change but it is very small. Lee Reply July 5, 2012 at 6:01 am OH MY GOD THANK YOU! I would always worry about my defence and my returns would be sloppy because I would try to change to backhand or forehand grip because I thought just using basic grip was incorrect. Thank you! Reply July 5, 2012 at 7:23 pm Yes you do not have time to change so you should have the grip which suit both side best possible way. Lee Reply July 5, 2012 at 7:56 pm so this is basically more finger power rather than wrist or arm Reply July 5, 2012 at 8:02 pm Yes say 80% finger power and rest 20%. Lee Reply October 9, 2012 at 5:57 pm coach lee how do you train or exercise to have powerful finger power? Reply October 9, 2012 at 10:12 pm There are a number of clips for that, please have look and let me know if you have any questions. Lee Reply October 10, 2012 at 5:38 pm Hello Lee, I have tried this technique but I am not sure if I am doing it correctly as the results are not that great (can't generate enough power). I don't know whether it is due to lack of finger power or due to poor technique. I suspect the latter. So for a lot of your videos, I would like to see a very detailed explanation on how to execute a certain shot (maybe in super slow-motion). In this particular video it would be quite beneficial to most viewers I believe. Reply October 11, 2012 at 4:51 am Forehand smash defense is more difficult then backhand smash defense. If you cant do it will then there must be a reason. Please do not give up but be more egar and be positive to do it. Keep try and see the reasons. Lee Reply November 23, 2013 at 1:22 pm Lee Sir.. I face a lot of difficulty in defending smashes which are hit very fast towards my forehand and close to my body.. i often miss them. i follow you sir. please help.
