    What is the name of this technique?

    Appreciate if someone can tell me what is the name of this technique so i can properly put a description in our drills. Is it forehand attacking lift? or deceptive lift?

    Thanks. Yes, i agree with you that this stroke can be called a net flick and it starts by showing to your opponent the net shot form then suddenly doing the net flick. Thanks.

    Badminton terms: Difference between "Lift" and "Flick"

    .
    For a shot going up high (from an underarm stroke) to the back tram-lines, there are 2 ways of doing it;

    * Using a full arm action - which I call it a "LIFT".
    * Using mostly a wrist action (with less arm action) - I call it a "FLICK".

    Says "Forehand attack shot" in the text, but what you usually call it in Japan is "lob".
    In Sweden we use the term "lyft" as in "lift" in English for both attacking and defensive purposes. I prefer to seperate lift and lob though and use the word lift for defensive and lob when attacking (i.e you lift it, but not as high and faster than a defensive lift).

    Answering what you have posted;

    In Badminton, as soon as you are doing or forced to do an underarm stroke, the term used is usually called a defensive shot.

    Defining an Attacking Shot

    .
    While I was reading past posts in this thread, I remember the longest post that I have made (back in 2006, 14th of June) talking about "Defining an Attacking Shot". :):):)

    Click on this link (to read) :
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/for...t-really-better-to-Attack?p=394781#post394781

    Perhaps, I should copy it and paste it in this thread. :):):)

    ================================================

    As we are talking more and more about services, ie whether a service can be an attacking shot or not... we have to consider what is defined as an attacking shot.

    Different postings from different contributors tell me that we are not talking on the same wavelength. This could be because we are players of different skill levels, of different schools of thoughts, etc, etc...

    So until we can agree on a definition, we won't make any progress in this forum.

    My experience in coaching Badminton over the decades tells me that most players think that an attacking shot is a shot that is executed with a violent force, in a hostile manner, with the shuttle being struck at above net height downward toward the opponent's body or court. But now my trainees have learned something new from me.

    My trainees now know that an attacking shot is any shot that can affect harm to his/her opponent, and it is a shot executed for that purpose alone.

    Games like Pool, Snooker or Billiards are 2-dimensional games, length & width. I have played and enjoyed them. Badminton, on the other hand, is a 4-dimensional game. And I prefer Badminton better because of the extra 2 dimensions of height and time, although, Loh and taneepak, based on their postings, might want to add in another dimension, the 5th dimension, ie the human element... mental strength, feeling of being in control, toughness, psychology, etc, etc...

    However, I am saying that we can attack with 1,2,3 or all of the 4-dimensions, length, width, height and time.

    Please remember my definition...”An attacking shot is any shot that can affect harm”.

    From my “first time to Badminton students”, a high service(in Singles) to the back tram lines is an attacking shot. This is because it pushes the opponent(also, first timers) to the back of the court. This is to do harm by moving the opponent away from the centre of the court. Of course, if Peter Gade is to serve high to Chen Hong, Chen Hong will not consider it as an attacking shot because it causes him no harm. Chen Hong can deal with it easily.

    From viver, an experienced player, the S-Service(which is now banned) is an attacking shot. It is because it is a very tricky shot to deal with.

    From Loh and taneepak, a good service or good netplay shot can be an attacking shot. It can force the opponent to lift or force the opponent into difficulties(time wise).

    Another example of an attacking shot is the shooting service that taneepak mentioned. In fact, at the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne 2006, New Zealand claimed that Australia was cheating in their sevice when Australia played the shooting service.

    From cooler and KooGuy, an attacking shot is a shot executed with a violent force, in a hostile manner, with the shuttle being struck at above net height downward toward the opponent's body or court.

    From Chai, sendoh and chewablemorphin, any shot hitting upwards is not an attacking shot. I thought Loh hinted to us that PG beat BCL in the Singapore Open 2006 by attacking him with excellent netplay, but you did not see it that way.

    From jerby, not only can you attack the opponent's court, but you can attack your opponent's stamina(the 6th dimension???).

    From franxon and badrad, an attacking shot is good provided we are more careful to avoid errors. Here franxon and badrad tried to tell us that that an attacking shot is a tighter shot, a riskier shot to play.

    For me, an attacking shot is any shot that forces the opponent to receive it not only below net height but a shot that puts pressure on the opponent time wise.

    Here, I have 2 examples that hitting up shots can be "attacking";

    -------------------------------------
    1. I learned from Darmadi, the Indonesian National Champion in the 1960's, that you can attack your opponent with a upward shot. His example is the attacking clear(giving very little time to your opponent to react). I have played with him and learned from him.

    2. From the Sidek brothers, I learned the S-Service(now banned) is an attacking shot because it causes lots of difficulties to your opponent because the spinning and wobbly effect of the service.

    -------------------------------------

    We can even attack a smash if we can return a smash with a drive(giving him/her less time) to a corner far away from the smasher. This is using all 4 dimensions of the game, correct length, correct width, correct height and with less time.

    Also we can now see that many players have learned to play a netplay shot with lots of spin and wobble. To me this is an attacking shot even though it is an upward shot. It can cause harm to your opponent. With the spinning and wobbly nature of the shot, your opponent might want to play safe and reply by lifting. But of course, your opponent can also spin it back to you, in other words, counter-attacking you.

    I have also mentioned that as we progress with Badminton, we will learn new things. Soon we will learn better ways to deal with the spinning/wobbling netplay. At the moment, I tell my trainees to learn to spin/wobble it back at the netplay to force opponent to lift. Or even gently hit the spinning/wobbling shuttle with their racket frame instead of the racket strings.

    So you see, an attacking shot can be performed with gentleness. Perhaps you can see my philosophy now, as Bruce Lee put it “You can attack your opponent with force or with gentleness”.

    So, for all of us in this forum, let us define what an attacking shot is before we go any further.

    -------------------------------------

    I know exactly what franxon and badrad mean when they said “we have to be careful to avoid errors”. To play attack, we are subjected to more errors compared to if we play a safe/control shot. We can be risking errors if you play a harder smash, a tighter dropshot, a spinier netplay, etc...

    To me, even a deceptive shot that can wrong foot your opponent is an attacking shot.

    When I started this thread, I was thinking of all the points that I mentioned above. But I realise now that I did not know that different people look at the concept of “attack” so differently.

    I apologise for it.

    Wow... what a long post.

    We shall add in the term "Swipe" to our list.

    What is a "Swipe"?

    For me, a "Swipe" is a sweeping blow or stroke executed during 'Dribble', when 2 opposing players are challenging each other in their fore courts'.

    A "Swipe" is a stroke striking the shuttlecock with a follow-through of the racket-head over the net into the opponent's court. Note: The point of impact with the shuttlecock has to be on your side of the net.

    LOL. That's a funny term. :):):)

    Probably, it's best to place it in our BC Jokes thread.

    Push = Movement with a constant speed with the swing of the racket-head
    er?
    in chinese, a push shot is not expained like this, in general, pushes are divided into two types, underarm push and overarm push, according to the height of the return of shuttle at midcourt or near the net, and, based on the concrete situations, you can choose a gentle action or a sudden action with rotation of the wrist to push the shuttle.
    the most important, you'd better grasp the oppotunity as you can, ensure the height of shuttle, push the shuttle by overarm push, and get a good effect.

    I think gentle action=push and sudden action=drive.

    Badminton Strokes/Shots that we wish to know

    Hi sange,

    Please feel free to add more Badminton terms for us, BCers.

    Do post some of the Chinese articles. You'll never know, other BCers could translate them.

    Also, correct translation is not as important as the idea/description of the various Badminton Strokes/Shots that we wish to know.

    The pushshot is a gentle but accurate shot often used in Doubles

    .
    Correct. That's what I meant.

    The pushshot is a gentle but accurate shot often used in Doubles.

    It is directed to an area that causes trouble as to whom of the opponent partners is best to return it. It is to cause hesitation between them partners; And by the time it is returned, their late return is usually not a good one.

    Alrighty, I'll try my best to explain :) The tap is basically the same as the Net Kill while the flick is a flat shot executed at the net area that travels in a flat manner, in a way it's like a very flat lift in the forecourt~
