    ..but not necessarily more independent...In fact, some if not most of them will go back to their respective countries to the same "comfortable" living/environment as before they went abroad..

    For whatever the reason, they have a legitimate argument for going back: to take care family business. Nothing can beat that

    Even better, let's hope he will win badminton titles for Ina and bring more prestige to the sports for all baddy lovers. Is he too old for that

    Most universities in Beijing are on the north side and were too far for me to go so I went to the middle of the city called WangFuJin Ave., where there is a gym called DongDan Gym. I had to pay one or two days ahead, otherwise would not be able to get a court by just showing up.

    You are much luckier than me with the cheap courts and coaching. Definitely, you will get better faster with help and practice. Mine is more for recreation with no ambitions, which you seem to have plenty
    U mean WangFuJing??Well..u could take a subway to xizhimen then transfer to wudaokou.Hehe..no wonder it's so expensive for u to play badminton.U took taxi everytime.Taxi in beijing is not very expensive,compared to the other countries,but the locals tends to take bus or subway more.That way u can save more.I know these might not be a good option for foreigners,including me..since the bus n subway is always crowded.N during summer,it smells..

    All i had was just 2 months of courses..what's useful for me was the footstep lessons n how to grip.I got power to do full court clear,but i can't even smash.Simply said,i was sucks back then..So,i trained my self by playing more rapidly n by watching matches videos.I've learned my smashes,backhand,positioning,fakes,stunts..all by myself,by those self-training program.I'm a bit luckier,since i got more free time to play to different places in guilin,n they're all cheap to rent.I used this opportunity to play with different kinds of good players,to train my self for my next visit to indo.I wanna beat my dad's friends.Haha..

    As to the subway and bus in Beijing, because I was bringing family, it would cost the same as taxi. And also time was important, if I had more time we played 4 hours instead of three, and kids played pool table most of the time. We had to grab other ppl to play doubles with us.

    As for training in badminton, I heard that a lot of time itís about stamina and repeated actions. Since youíre young and athletic, you may not have problem with the sustaining power. If you have time, training every day would be the best. Now I see you have raised the bar after defeating your dad to include his friends. Are you talking about singles or doubles?

    No..i haven't beat his friends yet.I beat my dad at singles before..but that's just few times.Nothing compared how many times he'd beaten me before.So,all i wish is that i can beat him most of the time when i play with him in the future.I'm more into doubles.I got more knowledge in that,about where to place the bird n stuff.So does my dad's friends,they're all play doubles.So,i guess i'm more eager to win doubles against them.Last time,i earned a lil respect from them,n i want to earn more next time.

    Well, that's a different story now. Since doubles depends on two players, it's not you alone can do the job. If you had played with your partner for a long time and cooperate well, it will win your matches. So I'm not surprised you lost to them since you were just visiting home compared to them on home tuff

    Yup..too bad that i haven't really found someone to form a solid team,to improve together.I got some partners,different ppl in different places,depends on which day i play,which place.Good thing is that they're all about the same level as me.Since i don't really go to a formal club as probably some of u guys do,that makes it hard for me to find specific partner to form a solid team with.

    So,how bout u,birdwood?How's ur badminton life?How long have u actually played badminton?What's ur current level?What's ur game?

    My badminton life is none compared to yours, at a recreational level only for doubles. The boring answers have been posted some other places. Are you going to OG 08? I'm not sure I'll make it to Beijing this August with a lot ppl heading that way. It should be easier for you though.

    I don't know yet.First,i was thinking that things r getting way more expensive by then for sure.Accomodation,plane ticket,etc.The ticket?How much is it anyway?Well,i still have some friends in beijing.Prob i can stay at their place if i go.Watching from TV,from different angles r not that bad as well though..with the zoom,n replays.
