  1. You are very welcome. Lee

  2. Thanks for the tips coach Lee. These are basics in badminton that i did not know. I still have a lot to learn.

  3. I am very pleased to know that you are learning from my clips. Lee

  4. Thank you very much for the clip! I am very weak at returning low service and this helped me.

  5. I am very pleased to know and thank you for taking time to post your comment. Lee

  6. Hi coach Lee,
    I paid attention to the Start Step you mention and see the differnce. It make the receiver off balance according to my opinion. However, I still don't know why step one is that important because it looks like you just lower yourself a little bit.
    Is it help you to push your racket foot toward faster as well or it is just for balance ?

  7. It is not for only better balance, it is for fast push off. If you look at the players video, you will see that their two feets land same time when their opponent is hitting otherwise they can not change their direction fast. Try to study bit more , you may be able to see the reasons why it has to be done. Lee

  8. is it necessary to make that jerk step before going forward ?? wont it delay our shot? even if its only a fraction of a second delay … when badminton is so fast paced..!! .. juz askin out of curiosity .. Coach Lee , please advice

  9. You have very logical and good points and I totally agree with you. You are right it will be delayed if the person's timing of the step one is late. When you are receiving the service you have to the step one as same time as your opponent is hitting. Let say if you do not do it then it is much harder to push off. It is same as you start your car with gear 3 not gear 1. If you bring the timing of your step one forward/early then the problem you mentioned wont be there. Lee

  10. oh yea. thanks. wil keep this in mind ..

  11. You are very welcome and keep practice with totally positive mind set then you will feel it sooner. Lee

  12. if you boys are looking for to get ripped a lot faster without spending a single another minute in the gym, then you should check out this online video SIXPP.COM

    You purchase pain with all that joy can give and die of nothing but a rage to live.

  13. Coach Lee, I have a question. You said that your racket foot should be flat on the floor, not on tiptoes. However, when watching some of the professionals play (like Cai Yun for example), I notice their racket feet are sometimes a little tiptoed. Why is that?

    This is a helpful video, BTW. Thanks 🙂


  14. Everyone has different ways. If someone put on their toe then they have to down first to push off but if your ball is on the floor then you can move straight way rather then go down first. Each player has their style and you have to choose your too. But remember not everyone does same way. Lee

  15. Yes, that is very true. 🙂 Thank you for your reply.
    Personally I find I like to use a half-tiptoe. My toes and ball are on the floor but my heel is lifted up a bit.


  16. I think the way you discribe is the best possible way to do it.

  17. It really work, many thanks Mr Lee

  18. Your coaching is invaluable sir! Thank you!

  19. Super high serves easy net kill really

  20. Thank you ! Excellent Technique.

  21. This is really helpful, thank you Lee!

  22. I will try these technique s next time I play regards big smash jim

  23. brilliant greay help i won 4 matches in row using this technique

  24. Thank you for all these advices Coach Lee. I just wonder where and when (after which step) to return in a mixed double ?

  25. Lee sir, you are an excellent teacher. Thank you for your guidance.

  26. I have a question not about the service return, but about how to deal with push returns from opponent. Given short time to react and put strength on the racket, I do mistakes like the shuttle goes directly to the front player causing kills at the net. What actions will be appropriate in this situation?

  27. I got the foot movement though it needs practice and i will do it,but i need to know how to hold racquet.

  28. Wow I have learnt so much

  29. Hi Coach Lee,
    thanks for your insightful tips, but please can you demonstrate how on earth this can possibly work for the dreaded drive serves? I encounter them regularly and can not handle them well.

    Interestingly there seem to be no one to teach drive replies and Pros don't do them, so I think they must suck, BUT I can't figure out, why…  

  30. Your videos are awesome! Very helpful.

  31. I'm a beginner. I love your videos. You and your videos are becoming my teacher. Thank you very much.

  32. Hi Coach Lee,

    How do I return a low backhand service using a netshot?

  33. How do I stop high serves??

  34. And thx for the vid, I'll use it next week at my championship

  35. Sir, I wanna ask you a question about when the opponets always serve in the right or left the court not in the middle , what is the best return ? thanks

  36. Coach, I must tell you I participated in a tournament this week end and I realized how week my badminton was!!    I will continue to follow your advises and try to get better for the next tournament.

  37. Wow, your steps was very helpful coach. I'm always have a bad habit when returning serve from my opponent. I tried this last night when playing, surely improved my playstyle. Thanks coach Lee, will make some time to look at the other videos as well

  38. What should I do if opponent is serve by high serving


  40. Thanks coach. I have a question. What if my opponent serves back and high suddenly? Is there a different foot work to go back and take the serve. And, how to decide whether smash is better option or drop on the first return for high, back serve?

  41. Hi Coach Lee, you are very detailed and specific with instructions during training. I think it is very professional!


  42. Thanks for the video, coach! But I made an observation that while u are serving to your students, your service is quite high above the net, and therefore they are able to kill it easily. But in a game, the service is done extremely carefully and it is very difficult to kill it. Please can u tell us what to do in such situations?

  43. Hi Coach Lee,
    Thank you for the detailed steps and instructions! After adopting your method, my return rates have improved and even scoring a netkill at times!
    I have a question though, what if my partner is returning the service and I am behind. What kind of stance should I adopt?

  44. Thanks for this. This move is what i was missing all this time

  45. very clear thank you

  46. Hello Mr Lee, thanks for your sharing..your explanation is simple and easy to understand..thanks again!

  47. That looks great, and it's really well explained, thanks for the video, i can't wait to try it out !

  52. hi coach lee I would just like to say THANK YOU!! it really helped me and my friend during doubles

  60. Dear sir ,your coaching very helpful. I started playing after my schooling days – a very big gap- first few days it was awful. then I have followed your videos whenever possible. before all my group members were telling this is wrong that is wrong all the time with my game. yesterday one fellow came to me and asked your skills have improved a lot, what are you doing ? congratulations Sir. all due to you and some practice videos I am following. people really underestimate when one plays bad which is very bad , they should motivate.thanks a lot. have a wonderful life.

  64. Love your couching

  65. Coach , one small doubt. What if the guy decides to serve it to the back court while standing to do the short service? Or what if the guy decides to serve to the front court corner.Then wouldnt we be at a disadvantage to take those serves?
    Thank you for your videos . They are highly helpful.Hope to hear from you soon

  66. v n coCHING SIR LE JAE BOK

  67. Very 9ce ….

  68. This is most important question that I can think of when returning low service this way – how can I tell whether the shuttle would be ‘in’ or ‘short’ (deciding whether to take it or not)?
