    Default Do you find yourself using Badminton footwork in everyday life?

    Hey guys, this is something I've always wanted to ask fellow badminton fanatics....

    Do you find that you use your footwork skills in everyday situations???

    Examples:

    When walking down busy streets needing to dodge people I end up doing a split step then forward step (as if moving to forehand net shot) to dodge people... Especially if i need to dodge people quickly!!

    I find this really funny, perhaps a little disturbing and odd!

    Another one, when I move about my flat at uni (eg my room to the kitchen) i will use footwork to get there quickly and efficiently when I'm rushing through to make my cuppa tea!!

    I do it automatically aswell haha... no way to prevent the badminton taking over!

    Absolutely - chasse steps v useful in the kitchen (fridge to cooker and back again etc.). In the bedroom of course it's the forehand lunge that I find particularly useful...

    its just something with wii tennis, the computer likes to force you into using the fore/back hand that is more likely hit the ball out of court when intercepting net shot

    this is also something i've been wanting to ask .....i realise i throw rubbish into rubbish bins always with right foot ending, sometimes i even stretch a lot forward on the last step....lol

    sometimes i also think that badminton footwork help me keep my balance and prevent falls in some cases...wonder if it's just my imagination..haha

    I used to switch on/off lights in my home pretending doing the net drop. Both backhand and forehand moves.

    my badminton footwork had safe me couple of times when crossing the road!
    I have experienced a few times steping into the road without realising speedy cars approaching, and spontaneously I reacted the same way as anticipating for a smash - a slight hop and a side step back to the footpath! It works like magic lol..
