If you guys check out the introduction, i am new to this badminton game. I just started a month ago and find out this game is addictive and fun. Not so much of power but reflex. That makes me impress. Guys, as a new beginner like me, I just want to ask, What i should do to improve my skills? How should i begin with? I think i really need some basic skills as of this status. Can you guys help me on this ? I know it is very general question, but i would like to hear from different ppl. Thank you

Maybe the most important thing a beginner can do is find a local badminton gym/club and take a few lessons. This will give you a good foundation of the basics to build on. I myself have never taken a lesson in my life and have spent a significant amount of time (years) unlearning bad habits.

Learn the proper strokes
You can get a lot of tips for free on the Internet: youtube (type "badminton instruction"), you can go to badmintonsite.com where they have free videos, or you can get our book which teaches you everything you need to know in easy-to-understand terms with lots of pictures and examples:

Thank you for you guys idea. I kinda get that i need a coach and just learn some basic skills. Yesterday, i found some coach in my area which is california LA, they cost about 35-45 an hour plus you have to book the court. It's sort of expensive to me as i am student here.

just hit around at first and get few tips from other players before getting coached. That would save u some money. I know many players learned just from watching others and playing, no coaching but i mean up to B level.

If you have some friends that know how to play badminton well, you can ask them to share some tips with you =D
You could also try to search up some instructional video on the internet.

u dont have to get a coach to get better. What u can do is play with lot of better players and ask them how to do this and do that. I'm sure they'll be happy to give u some tips or even practice with u.
