    Imagining hitting the shuttle without a real shuttle of course. Make sure you do all 6 sides with the proper footwork and with speed.

    There was some nice speed. But in reality can you really take just one step towards the back court and swing? What are the chances that somebody would give you that weak of a clear? I do shadow drills to the extent of each corner.

    If you can't get to the back comfortably without a shuttle, think about how bad it would be when your under pressure and the shuttle is flying behind you. If you really can't do it, then you really need some practice on moving back. Why don't you thoroughly read www.BadmintonBible.com on footwork and then ask us questions about it.

    That guy could leap 1 step from base position to the baseline. 6ft+.

    you won't improve that much if you do shadow training. You need someone to feed you shuttlecocks if you want to improve. How can you know where the shuttlecock is going if you don't train with one.

    I have to disagree. Shadow drills are the fundemental training for footwork. You can't hit the shuttle without knowing the proper footwork otherwise it will just be a waste of time and effort. With people feeding you, it will be better just to practice the strokes alone. It takes time for the feeder to feed you with every shuttle making shadow drills one of the best way to replicate a real match with a high imaginitive mind of course.
