Ahhh Kwun I was about to post a thread on this but it seems you beat me to it by a couple days. I haven't gotten used to having the "web space" he describes between the racket and your palm. It makes sense because it allows more room for you to tighten your grip and thus making the backhand shot more explosive at the moment of impact. It'll take time for me to make that "web space" second nature when I do my backhand because I do believe it will squeeze out some more power out of my backhand stroke. I think mainly it's because I've become so used to resting the racket on my palm when I perform the stroke
Aside from that, I like the forehand smash video because I actually learned something from it. He mentions at 0:45 of the video to have that 90 degree angle for both arms when in the stance to hit a smash or a clear in order to create more power. I myself have that small angle that he demonstrates that most badminton players shouldn't have and thus limits the range of motion your racket can wind up and really generate power.
I actually tried that 90 degree arm thing today and I definitely noticed a pretty sizable difference in the power generated though I have to adjust my timing with the new stance since it takes a little longer to complete the stroke. People have always told me that my smash stroke seems unnatural and that it didn't look like a "full" or "complete" stroke. I guess this is what they meant.

In regards to the backhand clear video, what do you guys think about stepping out with your right foot at the same time as hitting the shot (he does that at around 1:45)?
I was trained in that manner but a coach recently told me I should step out first, and then hit the shot so that I am more stable when I hit the shot.
