    yah, i try my best to get behind the bird before jumping as well
    but only behind enough where I can lift off verticaly and hit the bird a bit infront. Rarely i can get that much behind that i have to jump forward to reach the impact point. Imagine a good baseline clear that i'm jump smashing into.. if i had to jump forward.. i'd be literally way outta court. Don't think my legs can take me that far

    even in volleyball we try not to jump forward cos u'll have more tendancy to fault touchin the net. Now Jumping backward is another thing
    i notice myself doing it sometimes when i'm was being push real hard.
    I do it when my leg go lazy and refuse to take the extra step backward
    and so i start the jump early. However, the extra effort from break my body moving backward upon landing kinda defeat the entire purpose of my leg being lazy. Guess i'll need to get rid of that habbbit somehow

    Hm I think some of you are missing one of the main points of a jump smash. Unlike in normal smash, there's very little body rotation during the execution. Rather than the power output being based on body rotation and forearm pronation, the power comes out of your legs bending at first and a moment before the impact comes the straightening of your legs. And yes indeed you have to jump forward in order to gain better power (this works very well on me).
