In 1980 the person teaching/coaching you in Australia may has been anybody, definitely not Tang Xinfu.
Can you tell me how was Tang Xinfu's playing style. And how was his tactical thoughts compared to his playing style? You mentioned earlier:
- "I find Tang Xian Hu's philosophy on training methods the best. If only you have studied/listened to his coaching methods. But of course, this is only my opinion"
- "... How do I know? After knowing Tang Xianfu's philosophy, I can only
guess what he had told Lin Dan before the match. And also how he had
trained Lin Dan at the 2008 OG (in anticipation for him to face LCW at
Based on your own words and description, you must have an intimate knowledge of Tang Xinfu's thoughts and training methodologies. Would you be kind enough to share the principles that guided his game then?
In 1980? As mentioned, Tang Xinfu already retired as a player and did not train much. I don't think he would play a match against a fit opponent. And again, in 1980 you could have anybody coaching you guys in Australia, but not Tang Xinfu.

If you happen to meet Tang Xianhu, just remind him of me...

Tong Sinfu – The man behind the victory…
Tang is the man who responsible for the winning of China’s team. With his magical touch, he makes China into a badminton giant in this modern era.
The sad part is Tang was Indonesian…
The fact is Tang was born and grew up in Teluk Betung, Lampung, Indonesia, March 13, 1942.
”In China, my name is often called Tang Xianhu or Tang Hsien Hu, depending on the respective regional dialect. But, my parents gave the name of Tong Sinfu”. While still dealing with Indonesian national team, he got the name of Fuad Nurhadi.
...His career began in late 1979, when he started to retire. For six years, Tang had trained China’s female players.
...Then in 1986, Tang started to train Indonesia’s players. Initially, he did not handle Pelatnas Cipayung’s players. He coached at the Bakrie owned club, Pelita Jaya. He was paid USD 750 per month, at that time. After that, Tang was transferred to Pelatnas Cipayung and began to coach there.
...”Indonesia’s players at that time were different from the one now,” he said. “They were of better quality”. “Also, they have a spirit and willingness to be a champion” said the 68 years old coach. ”My philosophy as a coach is not the coach who must be good, but the player himself. The trainers task is only to help” he continued.
...At the 2000 Sydney Olympics, he saw his protege, Xia Xuanze, surrendered at the hands of Hendrawan who was also Tang’s protege while he was still in Indonesia. ...Conversely, the success Ji Xinpeng who had beaten Hendrawan was also thanks to Tang’s instructions.
...How sad is above story ???…
He could have been Indonesia’s greatest badminton coach…
He is truly a pearl who have been wasted by Indonesia…

chris-ccc promised so much but never delivered?
I am really getting annoyed now.
May I repeat it: Tang Xianhu was teaching me how to coach Badminton, not how to play Badminton. It looks like I haven't been able to get this point across.
BCers (who are players) are still asking what he has taught me on how to play Badminton - While I was only being taught by him on to how to coach Badminton.
I shall stop responding now, because the noise is getting too much for me (I regret to say). Because many readers here do not understand the difference.
It has really got on my nerves.

I think Chris has been very tolerant. I would have stop long ago. I am a lousy teacher of any sorts.
Chris, you must be a very good coach.

Most BCers here are players and not coaches
We need to let it go.
Why? Because we coaches and players often think differently.
Because most BCers here are players and not coaches, I have to admit that I am a minority.
While I am talking about TXH as a coach, most others are talking about him as a player. Strange isn't it?
Just look at another example: Whenever we talk about Li YongBo as a coach, we seldom find BCers talking about him as a player. Why? I wonder.
Perhaps I am in the wrong thread again.
This thread is probably more suitable to talk about TXH as a player, and not as a coach.

Chris, take it with a grain of salt and laugh it off As for my teasing you in previous post is meant in a humour manner, maybe it may sound twisted and for that, I apologize.

This thread is about TXH, period. As a person, and as a man who has brought his considerable knowledge, insights, instincts and beliefs to bear on the very future of the game that we all love so much.
While I would hesitate to name him as the greatest ever (that's just too definitive for me! ) there is no question about his influence on players, and the course of the game.
I am sure that like me, there are many more here who would be interested in knowing what it was that you learned from your meeting with TXH. Frankly, I wouldn't expect anything profound or spiritual; probably some basic truths that most of us discard or prefer not to recognise as we get too wrapped up in proving a point. I don't mind waiting a while, but please think back to your meeting with him, and what else you took away from it, and when you think the time is right, I hope you can share it with us.
