    - full-color
    - added pages and certain pages have been augmented
    - extra article on a new psychological tactic
    - links to videos from the book
    - and if the book is updated, you can download the new version

    Default Important Note

    I've been informed that some purchasers of the book have been approached to "share" the book, in other words, get a copy without purchasing it. Note that each book has a unique password and we will be able to trace which book is being "shared" or copied. Once we find out, the purchaser's log in privileges will be cancelled so they won't have access to the videos or to the book updates and extra articles.

    Butch and I continue to add and improve the book and we look forward to updating it with new tecniques and tips.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, I've contacted around 40 publishers and distributors and they all seem to think "badminton" does not have enough support in North America, although they really like the book and think it's well done.

    hey vip,


    is there a way for those, like me, who purchased the printed version to have access to the videos and updates besides buying the downloadable version?

    Yes, I'm working on a password system where, if you have the printed version, you just need to give a specific word/s from a specific page of the book and then you'll be able to enter a page to view the videos.

    I'm programming this right now.

    Hi. Right after your purchase is completed, you should receive the download info shortly. In your case, I sent the download info Friday--I hope you were able to go through the book before your practice Saturday.

    The password to access videos for the print version of the book will keep changing randomly. So with the book in hand, the page will ask for a word or words from a page in the book. You just enter the word or words and you're in. Now if you give this answer to someone else, you're not sure if that someone will be asked the same question/answer since the page asked for will keep changing randomly.

    Wink Error with pic in ebook

    Hi Vip,
    Great book, just downloaded the ebook, found a error with a set of pic in the ebook. Page 105 'showing the proper motion for a forehand, although the wording and sketches are correct' in the set pics of Butch performing a forehand, he doesn't transfer his racket foot to the front.

    Hi. In those set of pictures, Butch is demonstrating the upper body part of the shot: the shoulder turn, weight shift, hip thrust, wrist action--he wanted to emphasize these aspects of the stroke on that page so he didn't do the step forward to allow the reader to first concentrate on those aspects of the stroke. Anyway, thanks for pointing it out and letting me clarify.

    Thanks for the ebook.
    I read till late night-great! Just by reading some line-ups or watching pictures i could find so many key parts of movements to understand why in the past sometimes the strokes went well or not. I like the many pictures.
    The psychology article is easy but interesting-i'll try.

    Thank you for your comments, TrueBlue,

    Butch and I made the book for people like you and me, who love badminton so much that we constantly want to improve our game and so enjoy it even more.

    Default Great book and fast delivery

    I purchased the ebook and got my password the next day.

    I have now fully read the book and found several interesting sections that I putting into my training. The explanation of how to do the high backhand is probably the most easy to understand description I have seen anywhere.

    There is no mumble jumble in this book. It is straight to the point and most sections are easy to understand. It is definitely worth the money spent.

    However, I am still missing a section of how to hit the backhand when it is on the side or in front of you in mid to back court.

    Thanks
    / Jens

    Hi Jens.

    Glad you like the book. As for how to hit the backhand at the side or in front of you at the mid-court/back-court, I think you're talking about a drive-backhand as compared to a high backhand. For a drive backhand,
    1. first do the proper grip (refer to "Backhand Grip" section in the book, pages 52 to 65), so if the shuttle is at your side or behind you, shift to the "past body backhand grip", if it is in front, then use the standard backhand grip;
    2. take a step with your right foot (if you're right handed) and plant it close to the spot underneath impact point (page 67 in book);
    3. next do the wrist coil (making sure the racket points to the ground for more power), elbow throw, wrist action through the pushing range (pages 72-78, 80-81 and 183 for pushing range). Since you're hitting a drive, your elbow will be at shoulder height or lower (depending on the height of the shuttle), unlike with a high backhand when the elbow will be more at eye level. Make sure you're an arm's length from the shuttle so your shot is not cramped.

    So basically you use the same mechanics as the high backhand, but your elbow/arm is just lower. For practice, do the complete high backhand motion as described in the book (let the hundreds of pictures of Butch guide you), then gradually lower your arm but executing the same motion. When your arm is lower than your shoulder, during the wrist coil, the racket would no longer be pointing to the ground but sometimes will be pointing behind you or pointing up to the ceiling depending on how low you hit the shuttle. This'll give you power during the wrist coil.

    Thanks.
