    Is it any wonder people back off when he is about to smash? And if they get it back... great. Cai Yun is there. Bugger.

    You should know that part is a loop... hence sounds and looks exactly identical...... But the most important thing to note there is not the power or sound, but to see how utterly relaxed his hitting action is... totally unforced.

    I can't help wondering if the sound was digitally enhanced. Still, it looks pretty impressive.

    The sound isn't likely enhanced. That the gym looks as big as an aircraft hanger: Superb acoustics for deafening smashes!

    totally agree. here is one i recorded. it was just a few of us hitting around doing clears and light hits. the location is a huge 18 court facility with nobody else but us in the middle of the night. turn up the volume a bit and you can hear the impact very clearly and well as the echo. this was recorded on just an iphone and no further processing:

    He said, technique is most important and not power as "Wang Wang" (?) initially mentioned.
    Initially when young he spent two months practising his technique before starting to smash.
    Having the right technique means that you wont hurt your elbow which caused Wang Wang to retire.

    4 steps in the smash. 1 preparation, 2 pulling back into position, 3 flicking back the racquet, 4 follow through and repeat..

    hope that helps a bit..

    To add more instruction to FHF's slow mo video, thought I'd post here Gollum's most excellent advice on the smash technique from this post in 2006:

    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...288#post383288

    The best way is to watch some videos of the pros in slow motion. This is especially effective when they play the slow motion replay after a rally, because you can see even more detail.

    When watching videos of the pros, be aware that they use many different variations on a basic stroke. For example, they use "half-smashes" as well as full smashes. A half-smash uses somewhat different technique to a full smash. Look for a situation where they have time to get ready and play a full smash.

    Ready position: as you said. Shoulders and body turned almost 90 degrees to the net (though head looking forwards). Elbow high, just below the level of shoulders, and flexed ("pointed" with a small angle, less than 90 degrees, between the upper and lower arms) Racket strings facing the floor. Left arm raised in front of you.

    Hitting: rotate your body as your shoulders turn. Mike Woodward, former BE coaching manager, says, "Hip, hit, hooray!", which is a nauseatingly twee expression but does remind you that the hip should come forward before you hit the shuttle.

    As your shoulders turn, your elbow (still flexed) comes forward and higher and your racket head drops down behind your back. You then uncoil from this position, extending your elbow as you pronate the forearm. At the start of this motion your racket strings are facing inwards (to your left, if right handed); at the moment of impact, instantaneously, they face straight where the shuttle will travel; and immediately afterwards, they face outwards (right).

    Following after the shot, the racket travels initially straight and then relaxes across to the left.

    During the hitting phase, at the same time as you turn your shoulders, you need to turn your legs around. You start with the left leg forward and the right leg back; just before you start the hitting phase you must take your legs off the ground, so that during the hittting phase you can rotate your hips and swap your legs around: you finish with the left leg back and right leg forward. Land on the left leg fractionally earlier than the right leg, throwing it well out behind you, so that you can use it to push forwards.

    Thanks to this thread I managed to change my smashing technique and it has made a huge difference to my smash - you can really hear the difference between my old and new smashes. I also came across this video which is another of Fu Haifeng explaining his technique. I can translate if anyone wants - one of the few times where being bilingual is a bonus XD

    Haha! Thanx for the video, flailingarms. That one is a pseudo Fedex commercial, iirc. But still good.
