    Hit the shuttle at full relaxed reach. This means you're reaching upwards, but you're not locking out your joints. There are still small angles at the shoulder, elbow, and wrist.

    Any new technique feels weird, because you're not used to it. It's to be expected.

    I understand the technique for all of them now but i'm having problems as i have a bad habit of having my shoulder and arms bent 90 degree in alot of shots and instead of using wrist power i am using arm.

    Clear Shot: My arm stuck 90 degree == but im doing it incorrectly
    and i can get power from wrist and arm

    Back Hand: My problem is the footwork and generating power when the snap wrist action. My shoulder inst pointing up as i am required.

    Smash: my arm is stuck 90 degrees again i cant seem to stretch my arm. And i think i know the wrist action.

    Im pretty sure i know how all the wrist and arm is meant to be but how can i practice this at home? And i won't be able to practice when i go to my badminton session as we just play games and rotate to the people lining up.

    Should i just get a racket and pretend im hitting the shuttle with the correct technique over and over again?

    i think you need help in the sense that you need someone to pick on your bad habits when you are executing a shot. either that or record yourself hitting whether it be in a game or just warm up. without proper coaching it is quite difficult to figure out the little things that you're doing wrong (if any). but sometimes i do find it useful to watch how the pros hit in slow motion, then mimic it and watch myself in the mirror. of course that's the last option because even watching and mimicking the pros i know i still miss a lot of little details, but at least you get somewhat of the way you're "supposed" to hit. but again, nothing can replace proper training.
