    Check out the nba slam dunk contest. Do those guys jump off one leg or two legs?

    And, not to forget, it's more of an introduction to the jumpsmash video.

    Does anyone know of any examples where a player is moving forward/backward/sideways while airborne...and still successfully performs a jump smash? Or does all lateral movement have to be finished before the deed, and the jump performed strictly vertical?
    if u watch pro doubles......they can practically jumpsmash from anywhere, in all directions. of course, with more forward component comes greater power. but there's also block jumps to the sides that's frequently used, and is still effective. and for the backhand side, they can do a scissor jumpsmash, or a block jump(which is harder and happens less frequent)

    just need some advice

    ive been playing for about 3-4 years now , and i find that when i "jump smash" ,in games, my form is generally off. About maybe 20% of the time i can execute it perfectly. So recently ive been going outside and having someone watch me, or taping myself, jump smash without the bird. I find that without the bird my form is very good, or as good as i could hope it to be. But the problem is when there IS a bird, my timing of the jump is off really often; and thus results in me having to sacrifice some of my form in order to hit the bird still.

    Anyone have any advice? Should i just keep practicing against a partner?

    thanks

    This is the same problem I have... it's easier when there's no shuttle. But as soon as you bring a shuttle in, everything starts to feel awkward. I guess it's mainly timing the jump?

    I was playing A/B grade doubles club games last night, and since I knew nobody that I was playing against.. I decided to go all hard-out and I decided to shout out loud.

    I usually only play C-grade men's doubles, but I could cope with A/B grade. My jump smashes were.. not like my usual ones ( they were much harder ). I was totally concentrated in the game itself, and I was playing superbly, compared to my usual games.

    My conclusion: Shouting helps.

    timing is the key to all jump smashes, which is also why it is everyone's largest problem. this timing problem is made worse by the feather shuttle's trajectory. ever notice that jumping up to intercept flat clears produces better jump smashes than those where you jump up to meet a high lift/clear?

    you "practice"



    A good start would be to be on time, not jumping backwards, and don't jump the full 100%, but first get a decent smash at 75-80%, you'll be more consistent.
