    Updated video. I'm in blue.
    I noticed that I need to get back up to attack after I do a net push. (sigh... so many things to fix)

    I think I'm improving at least a little each time (at least I feel that way).
    BTW I'm standing wider now to return smashes, but am I standing too wide?

    When you do have a wide base, I think it is fine, although...

    You miss out the split pretty often when you are on the defensive (e.g. 6.18, 6.40).

    You are very upright during your movement around court, but you aren't under pressure most of the time.

    I liked your front court movement. I think you should re-consider how you serve - you go from racket at your side to service in 1sec. There is no preparatory pause anywhere which I think is essential for a consistent serve. Consider this: In every sport where the player totally controls the shot, and the timing of the shot, you will find that there is a pause e.g. golf swing, e.g. snooker stroke, e.g. tennis serve, e.g. dart throw.

    Your jump smash seems to be all arm - no useof rotation/abs.

    Yeah that jump smash is still a work in progress.

    About the serve, you are correct. It was a choice to serve fast but I do see your point and agree with your logic. Initially I do quick serves to give opponent little time to figure out the serve but at more advanced levels I think consistency is more important than the deception.

    Split step. So you mean to load up the legs basically by doing a up-down/mini-hop movement in the same spot?
