    Right now i am training at su's badminton club. however, i have decided to switch to lee's because su's dont' really teach me anything! Before i thought the coach at su's is better than lee's since he was part of the chinese national team. But after been there for 2 month, and asking the ppl at the club, i have noticed he barely teachs anything! all we do is go there and play, no trills, no foot work nothing!
    Another thing i'm really concerned is that the coach sells FAKE :eek:racquets!
    I saw a student there with an ** *** and the student said she bought it from the coach. I am considering on buying an ** *** so i asked the student if i can try it out. but first i looked at the serial # it says 231153C*H. the * imediately
    cought my attention and then i looked other parts of the racquet and found out the shock obsorbers are missing( i'm sure this type of racquet should have them, by the way, the racquet is yonex).

    Therefore, i am difinitely going to lee's and i just wanna warn you ppl at this club.


    sry i can't tell u the name of the racquet because su's ppl might find about who i am:p

    through my experience during my time at su's badminton, i would have to agree on most of froca's points, except for some. i went to su's badminton in the summer. the coach only used one fifth of the time we were there as lessons. we played amongs ourselves for the rest of our time there.

    im not sure about the fake rackets though, as i have not seen him selling anything.one thing i know for sure is that this place isnt too professional. they rent high school gyms as training facilities and they have only one coach who is none other than mr. su himself.

    i am now training at lee's badminton

    I have seen him played at Lee's, no where as good as Troy. But don't know if he is better in coaching or not.

    Thanks for the information about Su's

    About Su's chinese national team member Status

    Just let you know, rumor say that he has never been in Chinese National Team.

    To find out the truth, you can ask him which year he was in national team and how long he was there.

    Good luck

    looking back, i dunno why i've ask that dumb question.

    As for claiming to be on china national team, u have to watch out for those claims. If china can fabricate fake strings, shoes, rackets, bags, shirts, why not fake or makeup coaching credentials? Even worst, it's all verbal, no papers, not even fake papers. Sometime it is tricky. A janitor sweeping floor at the china national training center can be also claim to be part of the national team too.

    i highly doubt that mr Su was a part of the national team. first of all, he isnt fit at all. one could say that he jus gained all that weight after retiring, but then again, y would an athlete, who probably cares about his own health especially as they're getting old do that to him/herself? especially with the knowledge of healthy dieting. Also, ne one seen him be4 in the rankings, or at least seen him play?

    could he have been a coach for the chinese national team? no way. his teaching methods r terrible. ppl go fer 2 hours, but only half an hour is used to actually do drills, n then we play by ourselves, while he relaxes. the other thing i found funny, is they way he taught techniques. when i was there one summer, he was teaching overhand shots, he started out alright, teaching the beginners to turn their bodies, make sure the grip is correct, then he said sumthin funny. as u hit the bird, try to jump as high as possible:eek:. that jus confused me, i litterally looked like this:eek:. what could he mean? could he be talkin about the scissor jump? but no way, y would he teach that to beginners, n it wasnt indepth either. n then i saw this poor 6 yr old do exactly wat mr Su said. so he was ready to hit it. n then he jumped, after hitting it and landing he looked like he was about to trip n fall. but wat did mr Su say? well he spoke chinese:D, but he said it was good, and if he kept practising that over n over again, it would be better n better.
    WOW!!!

    boy im sure glad lee's badminton doesnt do this.:p

    lol:D a janitor... he does look like one:D

    well i'm not going there anymore so i guess i can tell u guys what racquet it is.
    it's a YY AT700 CH and the serial # on the cone has a * thingy in between the "C" and the "H" and no shock absorber at the bottom of the head...
    therefore...it's definitely fake.

    anywayz.... su's sucks:p
