    Question Jump Smash

    Hey you guys,
    I was thinking of learning the JUMP SMASH. I thought it would be really helpfull, but then again I said to myself I am only 15, is it really worth it and will it really help me? I am quite badminton enthusiast but right now I only play for my highschool team and that too is the junior division. Can some of the experienced guys give me their insight into this matter?

    Jump a lot. You will develop timing.
    Best of all, you will develop stamina, because it's very tiring.

    I too am 15 and play for my high school. I can sorta kinda jump smash. During practice don't be afraid or embarrassed to try it out. If you don't get it the first time then you shouldn't feel bad. I messed up ALOT and hit myself a ton of times too. When you first get it, it feels awesome and then you just wanna keep on going. Just like Loopy said it gets tiring.

    find the Peter Rasmussen's jump smash video on youtube. that's a lot of help. then get a friend and take turns lifting the shuttle and practising your jump smash. don't be afraid to practise lots. but when it comes to a game which counts, eg, a school tournament, then leave them out until you have got them good.

    Age is not a factor in doing a jump smash. I have seen a 12-13 year old buy who did a jump smash, hes not very tall, standing around 1.58cm.

    But my coach said that it is a waste of energy...and the main thing in badminton is stamina so it is not that wsie to do it.

    well jump smash itself is not a waste of energy
    it's just energy consuming
    if you see a big wide hole in ur opponents game and you wanna end it quick
    then a jump smash would be great
    but if it's just a normal rally then there is no point performing a jump smash
    and a jump smash can also put ur opponent out of place when they are trying to retrieve it

    well I find that the jump smash is mainly done to get a better angle, however that much angle wont make much of a difference at the highschool level...unless youre like O.O

    To jump smash or not to jump smash....

    Everything is relative. At a certain level of play, the jump smash is an integral part of the game, whereas at a lower level, it might be a complete waste of time and energy.

    Without knowing what level you play at, my suggestion would be to take your coach's advice and not worry about the jump smash at this stage. While I might not necessarily agree with his assessment, we don't know the context behind his point of view (ie your ability, your opponent's ability, long term or short term goals, his expertise), so your best bet at this stage is to follow his advice.

    I'm sure there are plenty of other things you can work on besides the jump smash.

    You've got to learn some foot work before learning to jump smash. >_>
    Otherwise if you want to jump smash from a fixed position, then all you need is the right timing, technique ( of course ), and confidence.
    But oh yeah, it's better to ask a coach than to ask any of us about this.

    There are several styles but you need to get decent amount of air time, leg strength and alot of practice. In short, it helps generate significant power in the jumpsmash.
