I love the jump smash, I use it all the time and have been told I create very good angles(a few umpires have said it and its my best attribute). I am 16 years old and I am in the england cells and I find the jump smash second nature now. At first it was very difficult to do but when I got older and stronger it became very easy. It takes alot of leg strengthening to do it so a lot of training needed. The best example I found was this one:

I like the looks of the knee thing. But i oppose it, cuz when u land, wouldn't it make u less balanced. This would make it hard for u to return your next shot.

try this experiment
a) hold your raquet behind your head in your normal (pre-swing) position - execute a variety of jump smashes this way (3-5)
b) hold your raquet below your waist and swing both your arms up and (your raquet arm behind your head) as you jump and swing try it (3-5 times)
*in other words use the upwards swinging of your arms in an attempt to gain more height*
- see if you feel the difference between a) and b)
which one felt higher/more powerful ?
if you watch vollyball players they will swing thier arms down before they swing them up....the sway of the arms/and shoulders goes up with the jump

I also know that when you snap your knees in volleyball, the ball has a lovely forespin when hit. I think in badminton, this would definately help the speed of the birdie as it does in volleyball.

I am learning how to do a jump shot. Our club is using the mavis 300 shuttlecock. Does it matter a lot if I learn jumpshot using the m300? My guess is that the difference isn't much once you know how to do a jumpshot. What is your experience tell you about not using a feather shuttlecock? When you first learnt how to do jumpshot, did you start to count (ie. 1sec, 2sec, etc) when the shuttlecock dropped to the point where you should initiate your jumpshot? Thanks.

An Indonesian friend of mine once told me that a lot of players from my country play "flat" meaning they are so into strong smashes/returns that they tend to neglect placing and angles. "Flat" because the direction of their returns go right in front of them.
A jump smash/plain smash is a very powerfull tool but pros use it plainly for the kill. If you have a good opponent who knows how tiring a jumpsmash can be, there's a good chance he'll keep giving you clears knowing he can return your smash and use up all your energy. Try it at home. Try doing the jumpsmash (even without your racquet). After a few of those, you'll notice how tiring it can be.
Badminton is not all about the power of your smash. It's more about positioning your shots correctly to force your opponent to give away a shot for you to kill.

I am one of those whose main attributes is attacking and smashing, i started the pursuit of jump smashing about half a year ago after i realized i needed an upgrade to my smash. this thread gave some helpful advice, gonna try it out this weekend and see if the kicking out of the leg thing is really my missing source for some power. after an injury to my arm recently i've got to try getting my smash feeling back. thanks for the tips

Truely you don't see danes jumping around the court just as much as the asiens, but if you look at the smashes you'll se that they often are long (almost down the back-line) and crosses the opponent in the hip-to-shoulder height, which is the most hard place to do a prober return of the shuttle.
My own experience tells me that a flat agressive smash are costing more damages for the opponents 'cause its a harder to return a just as agressive return.

I might not have made it clear, but the idea with a flat smash is to hit at chest-shoulder height on the body, which very often gives i semi-hard return which you just "put in the ground"

On the other hand, players who defend too far forward, or with upright posture, are vulnerable to flatter smashes - because they are not protecting their body.

The perfect condition for a steep angled smash in doubles would be a setup lift in the midcourt. A straight smash to the floor between the two opponents would be close to unreturnable. Any weak returns would be put away by the front player. One shouldn't be absolute when it comes to tactics as different shots works better in different situations and different opponents. Flat and steep smash have their own use. Personally, I find that body shots work better when opponents are still on the move. eg. backing into defense. Effective steep smash is more of a placement shot than power shot to 'overwhelm' your opponents.
