    Default Workout for your body for footwork?

If you don't have anyone around who can show you some good footwork drills (although if you trawl through the archives, you should find some helpful stuff), you should at least work on your quads, calf's and butt strength. Squat's, leg-ups, shuttle-runs, plyometric type exercises etc will all help.
    I can do all the work for quads calfs and butt strengths, but what i can't do is squats. they start hurting my thighs ALOT, do u know why? i "am" pretty fat -_-.

    Just practise. My thighs also hurt 'ALOT' after doing about 6 to 8 courts of squat jumps. It's all just a matter of practise and training really.

    Default Nothing is the most important single skill to master

    footwork, shot placement, deception, anticipation, serves etc are equally important because you'll have to use all these skills when you play.

    for example, if you can get to the shuttle in good time but reply with a weak and inaccurate shot (e.g. semi drop) and get passed or smashed hard it doesnt matter how good your footwork is you won't get to the next reply on time.

    all skills are important as each other, different skills sets serves different purposes so it's pointless to compare. if it's about first things first then i think good all round fitness is a fundamental requirement before anything else.

    did you know that there are 2 kind of foot work? The first one is "floating" footwork and the other one is "stick to the grown foot work". By the analogy, it is like a sport car and commercial car, the sport car will have a better grip when in high speed on the other hand the commercial car will loose grip in high speed.

    Exactly!. I said the exact same thing to my friend, and we had a debate whether footwork or technique is more important. I know both are as essentially important, but obviously just like you, foot work is more important because "if you can't get there, you can't properly hit the birdy."

    I agree with you to a certain extent. I agree that all skills are important, and that they work together. However, it is very important to compare, because people have to work on what is more important first in order to practice the other.

    If you had footwork but no technique then you can't return the shuttlecock in both are just important.

    You can have technique, but you can not have no footwork. If you can't get there in time, you can't hit it properly anyways. SO my point is just to support that footwork is more important. Obviously you have to work on technique, but foot work is more. It opens more doors to your technique.

    There are 3 pillars of badminton and they form its foundation. These are:
    1. Grip.
    2. Stroke production.
    3. Footwork.
    You must have all 3. On or two without the other will only make you a half-baked player. Forget about other things like strength exercise, building bulging muscles, etc. until you get all these 3 right.

    Just follow the order of the numbers. It is a logical sequence. First you need to learn how to use a grip properly for the various strokes. Then you learn the repertoire of strokes, after learning the various grips. With these in your belt, you then learn footwork, which will allow you to move around the court efficiently to carry out what you have learned earlier.

    thats right kwun, when players are young the coach need to practise the footwork very well, the strength and power will come with the age and than younger the players are starting practising footwork than better. When you are older it's harder to practising footwork.
