    Hi,

    I have watched:

    A) Zhao Jian Hua & Xian Jie Instruction Video
    B) Xian Jie's learn to Play Badminton 45 episoles Video
    C) Chen Wei Hua 55 episoles Video

    All the above have positive points & negatives
    A) The two coaches are good, the slow motion is good & it is like a clinic to identify & propose corrective action to common badminton players, not necessary the Pro only. I only managed the youtube English version & do not know how to assess the other English Caption videos. I rate as 8/10

    B) The videos are a little dated but still good specially planning for coaching. The commentary is a little too long, talk too much & since no English translation, do not know what she is saying. I rate as 5/10

    C) The videos are not translated to English so again do not know what he is saying but good video and clear. showed a lot of techniques. I rate as 6/10

    These can be obtained at no cost other than download/internet

    Q1) What do you think of these instruction videos?
    Q2) Are there any others you would recommend & their + or - points?

    Thanks.

    yea ur right bro, i learned allot from these vids, but since they're not in English couldn't get the whole idea of it. But any ways its a very remarkable effort of my Brother HoraizonNL , who put all the coaching vidz on a single folder,
    there's a request to ya'll , could anybody of u reupload the vids with the english subtitles .:)

    not really fair to judge the content of the video and usefulness, based on the fact that you cant understand the language its made in..

    any comments on the visual demonstrations instead

    A) i've watched these and found them pretty useful at times, and sometimes not as good. the show has really good slow motion of the shots performed, but could use closer camera angles for some shots where people may find tricky or difficult to understand.

    Hi,

    You can search the torrent file for the zhao jian hua & xiao jie training videos. It has subtitles in case you have difficulty understanding mandarin.

    The file is called complete badminton training by zhao jian hua & xiao jie. There are 30 episodes and all in decent video quality.

    I find it useful to improve my game.

    A) Saw all episodes that focus on techniques and some episodes that focus on positioning. very good. l like the use of slow motion playback. I agreed with 8/10

    B) Saw maybe one or two episodes. Similar to A) but doesn't use slo mo playback as much. Still good.

    C) Saw one or two episodes, dozed off and didn't watch anymore. The coach doesn't speak loud and/or clear enough. Seems like it's his first time in front of a camera. Camera positioning isn't very good when showing techniques. I would rate this below A and B

    D) Lee Jae Bok's "Play to win" - excellent video. video quality (my copy) is 7.5/10 but watchable. Language: English. If I recall, it covers techniques, strategy and positioning. I find Lee is very effective in getting his points across. Only negative is I wish it's longer or cover more techniques/strategy. I would rate this 8.5-9/10
