Hi All, To be honest, I believe many of badminton players DO NOT look or observe the position of the opponents and think before making their shots. This is indeed one of the most fundamental coordination that a badminton player must have in order to move to the next level or improves the competitiveness. A good friend of mine who used to be my mentor in badminton, has always reminded me: - to look/observe the position of the opponents (by peeking at your opponents) - think before making your shoot - make shoot as effectively and efficiently based on your opponents position It looks like a very difficult tasks before making your shots. In my practice, I have done it and it gives so much benefits. I can effectively & efficiently kill my opponents by either using all kind of shots including clear, drop, smash, drive or even a simple net shots based on their position on the court. But still often times, I am having difficulties to look at the opponents position and think before making the shots. The difficulties often times caused by lack of concentration, physical fatique or even psychological barriers. Is there any method out there to improve the coordination of your eyes, brain, and action? Some sort of special drill perhaps? Or else to improve LOOK (observer) & THINK & HIT the shuttle (LTH)? Thank you for all the suggestion and hope this will improve others badminton skill as well.
