    and footwork... when you go to a badminton lesson dont get dis encouraged if you dont hit shuttles at first... most coaches will teach you the movement before the shot for example hartounoes (cant spell lol) the movement is more important that the shot to me.
    I would have to argee working on your stamina. It really helps you move around without being so tired. So you won't be worned out so fast.

    No footwork=no Spee.Without the speed you will loose alot of stamina when opponents does a net drop and clear.also puts you under alot 0f pressure doing a bad return to your opponents

    as long as you got a very strong leg, the stamina will come automatically. Since i have been a coach from my younger days, i have been emphasising on foot work and leg strength. 1 hour physical and 1 hour stroke play.

    Thumbs up

    HEllo everyone i want to share some new experiences as a "not so beginner player".

    Having a nice feel touching the bird my weakness are mostly in footwork, this part of the badminton game must be learn by pro in a way.
    So i picked up some videos in p2p, wanted to check my fundamentals movement (racket included). The videos show me the more efficiency way to move in court.

    I watched them carefully , do some sketch to understand the legs positions and the WEIGHT transfer. After a couple of hours of video Analise I decided to plan 2hours in full footstep action.
    I did this alone in a volleyball area out of town with racket armed and told you that I undestand the overall moves in 30min.
    (advantage to do this alone is to concentrate in your breath)

    I just want to notice i'm a rollerblade player too so my legs coordination are quite good.

    Sometime I mess or lose the tempo of moves (the stamina fault) so that why I slow acting the footsteps to correct analyze the miss.

    I plan to do this again during a week (maybe two) just to be natural with the new moving method around the surface.

    My recommendations its to go practice this out of club if you can **with good shoes because mine kills my foots**

    The experience can sounds boring but if you do this seriously you will have great fun feeling the rules, thats remember me "taishi shuang"

    Footwork it is... I remember when I was 13 yrs old, I'm a member of badminton club of my school... all I want is to play badminton.
    But we were throw in to learn our footwork, 1,2,3, jump, 1,2,3, smash, 123, front, 1,2,3, back and so on... it was tiring...

    At the end of the 2 hrs training, we only left 45 mins to play the game.
    Argh! But soon we realise footwork is so important and need to master it to win games.

    Well said!

    I agree. But I am a fairly tall player and my movement isnt very quick. Can you kindly give me some footwork drills and steps to keep me stable?

    For me, Footwork can only be better through continuous training...
    of course, u must know the basic of it before practicing it.. the basic is important and there is no right or wrong in footwork... Once u have the basic, u can practice it around the court frequently and u will find yourselves lighter and lighter from day to day...
    I also think that gym only come in after u have mastered the footwork.. if u dont have a basic footwork and yet u focus too much on strength training, this will only find yourselves heavier and slower less flexible inside the court there..
    "Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect."
    Once u have mastered the proper footwork, make sure u do it at high tempo that is as fast as you can....
    For double, they require lot of jumping... So jumping footwork is very useful in doubles....which require u to squad a lot.... Any other suggestion?

    It is achieved through trainings/drills from those can teach it, or sometimes from watching professional matches if you're good in learning at what you see.

    The first thing that I've learned was the basics of moving to the left or to the right. That is, from a defensive/offesive stance, if you are going to hit the bird coming to your right, use the left-over-right-hit pattern. Meaning, lifting first your left foot to cross in front of the right, then step your right sideways. By the time you stepped your right foot sideways, you are about ready to hit the bird (assuming you are a righthander).
    If the bird is coming to your left, you have to lift your right foot first crossing behind your left foot, then your left to step sideways, then hit. That's called right-behind-left-hit pattern. These are just very basic, but from these two patterns you can modify to suit your other upcoming footworks to learn. That's it for now, I hope I did something of help to you.
    hi, i'm a self-trained intermediate player with no proper footwork, looking to raise my standard. i've read every post and i couldn't agree more that footwork is damn important, because i'm an engineering student with an analytical mind, and i know very well my footwork could do with more work, above everything else.

    the above posts weren't properly replied to as i hoped, which is why i'm asking this to clarify. thanks in advance for helping.

    see, in the 1st quote by KoiCal, he said that the right foot should be in front, but from melgyver's post it demonstrates that the left foot is in front (because it crosses the right foot from the front). so which is the proper way? i'm a righty by the way.

    thanks again.
