    One lol bit tht improved my footwork and shots immensely was body balance/stance.

    Just by keeping my other hand up to balance out the movement

    I have found the best way to improve your game quickly (assuming you are competent with the basics) is to watch professional tournaments. Watch not for their technique which is often times too fast without slow motion capture and the average player is not going to duplicate it easily, but for their strategy, where they are hitting the shuttle, how they are maneuvering the other side etc. Techniques like reverse backhand slice, backhand clearing cross court, backhand smash, fake shots etc and footwork, these takes considerable time and effort, to the tune of a few hundred practice shots a day for months on end, but you can formulate strategy faster and this is probably the fastest way to improve your game. Ideally, you would want to have the entire rally planned out, where do I want to drop, where to smash, when to smash, when to over head etc before the shuttle is served. I had beaten players who are my betters in both technique and footwork, because they were too predictable, always drops cross court, always puts it on the net when receiving a drop etc. Besides that, I don't think footwork is any more important than techniques, you need both in equal measures, your shot is going to be poor quality if you cant position yourself right or if you don't have the skill to hit it right.
