    Several people have been asking if there was a site which showed the basic strokes and footwork movements. There is a site I know of, but it`s in Japanese!
    Not much use to most of you! Therefore I`ve put together a collection of direct links to the relevant pages on the site, and as there are a lot of pictures and video you can get by without being able to read what`s written.

    Basic grip - Eastern grip
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/rucket.html

    Footwork - examples of footwork to the back and forehand corners
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/foot.html

    Clear
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/clear.html

    Cut/Slice
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/cut.html

    Drive
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/drive.html

    Receive ( probably more useful for doubles )
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/return.html

    Net - for some reason only the backhand stroke
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/net.html

    Smash - complete with jump smash
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/smash.html

    Side shot - if under pressure to get shots back from the back
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/side.html

    High Backand
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/hiback.html

    Backhand Service and Doubles receive
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/servis.html

    Split step
    http://aqua.pekori.to/badminton/reaction.html

    Some of the pics and video aren`t so great but at least this gives you a controlled look at most of the main strokes ( minus the forehand net shot - weird!!).
    Any questions just let me know.

    Another site

    Thnx for the links, Steplantis. For a good mix of some basic as well as advanced vid clips, go to www.SportsID.com and select Badminton. There are a number of clips that deal with grips. footwork, strokes & other topics.

    Through a Google search, I found a reference to the site aqua.pekori.to/, but when I click on it, I get the Page Cannot be Displayed message.

    It's probably a good idea to make Steplantis an honourary member of BF; he comes up with so many of these great sites and references to help amateurs like me learn the theory in hitting before applying them on the court.
