How to Play Badminton : Basic Footwork for Badminton Beginners

Hi my name is Bryan and welcome back to
What we are going to talk about is, we are going to talk about the basic foot work side
to side in doing badminton footwork. First off, we are going to start off on the right
then to the left. We talked about the base position earlier shoulder,the legs need to
be level. Let me start off in going to the right. Left foot need to move across and the
right foot moves forward. Reach. As you notice, my left foot is a little bit slant to the
ground when I launch my right foot with a swing motion, then go back to the base. Same
thing with the left foot forward. Moving forward and launching to the right hand side with
a swing. Eye contact needs to the net and the opponents with the swing. Go back to the
base position. I’m going to do it a little bit faster with the same position side way
on the right side ways to the left. In the count of three. One, two, three. Also remember you need to go back on the side
ways position. Knees need to bend a little bit as much as possible. If you can do heels
up that would help you better on control doing the lunges.

  1. my teacher said u should always step with ur right foot, and look up and keep the racket slightly higher so u can hit it sooner, works better i find

  2. Where are the split steps? They are kind of important…

  3. its just badminton. are there a lot people who get this into it?
    i see it as a Bar B Q sport

  4. One of the best ways to learn is to watch pros doing it…….repeatedly…..just watch people like Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei, Taufik Hidayat. These are current top world players.

  5. Do you have any idea how much money these people make just by playing with influential people? And The connections they get? Not to mention the girls…

  6. I play tennis.I used to think the same thing about badminton;it's a totally different game.Play with someone that knows how to play and you will think differently about it.I find badminton hard now,and never mind quite physically demanding,if you play against opponents better than yourself.I think I'm hooked now.
