Same in badminton, when a player train the same pace everyday for 3 years or so, the player will create a same flow in his every game, to beat this guy you need to identify his flow and destroy it, most of the time people will force the opponent to play with his own pace, this is where people mislead the "pace" they thought when forcing the opponent to play with his pace he can beat the opponent easyly, when two people trying to control pace, a new "flow" is created, when this happen, skill and technique will be no longer valid as a winning factor, the winning factor will be stamina ,endurance and luck.

Flow and Destroying Flow
In 2007 I play againts Tommy Sugiarto ( son of the legendary Icuk Sugiarto),I thought in my mind if i play speed and power I will be able to control and beat this guy, since this is my 1st international game, I was naive I thought international standard of playing will the same as back home.
So when the game was started, I play according to the plan, speed and power, wow the game was impressive, but only until 11-10 of the 1st set. I couldn't breath and my stamina was dried out, well to cut the story short in the end of the game the score was 21-12,21-6, It was a very embarrasing moment so I took the lesson and move on.
The same year (november), I when to China to compete in world chinese tournament (25-30) years old category, this time I got the 2nd place.
The lesson I gain from the match againts Tommy Sugiarto was,
1)never ever create a flow in any match or you will collapse by your own flow.
2) Even if you do not have endurance, it doesn't mean you can't beat your opponent.
In China, all my opponent play with flow accept the one I was beaten in final, this guy doesn't have flow in his game!!His shot was simple and basic, but the pace and flow were non!!! At that moment, for the first time in my life I play a match where endurance and stamina was not a factor in determined win or lose, it is about skill, killer shot, smash, strategy and control.
After that meaningful moment I finally understand how to play high level badminton. It is about finding flow and destroy it. If the opponent doesnt't have flow, create flow and destroy it!!

so you're little stick-horses are focus, clamness and flow...
why do you keep saying 'tai chi badminton'? why are you so hellbent on coining your own term?

maybe you should
I know with 'tai chi' you refer to the whole "inner life force" and "inner peace", the spiritual side of the martial arts sport.
But really, these are well-known principles, nothing new. And by recoining it tai-chi and talking about your revolutionary idea (which you by the way admit is already done by all pro's) just sounds silly.
You obviously have a lot of experience (even at international level) and you can probably contribute a lot, but sticking to the well-known terms for these things helps us readers a lot

The Tai chi concept in combat
Martial art: The ability to use tai chi as a form of self-defense in combat is said to be the most effective proof of a student's understanding of the art's principles. The study of tai chi chuan martially is the study of appropriate change in response to outside forces; the study of yielding and blending with outside force rather than attempting to meet it with opposing force.

Blending with the game pace/speed/flow/rhythm, and use the appropriate skill to break the pace/speed/flow/rhythm (not as simple as this). And u must have master all the skill so that you can chance your timing, playing style, pace/speed/flow/rhythm freely in order to play "tai chi badminton". Can you change your playing pace in the bling of a second, from speed pace to slow and slow to fast, in one single point? If yes, you are a great player.

i usually go for exceptionally tight net drops and net shots but sometimes in btw a game i would start net killing and smashing anything that smells like it. would u call this "breaking the flow" coz that obviously puts off your opponent who will never again correctly anticipate your gameplay

This is basicly another form of deception. The opponent won't be able to guess where we will hit ?
I beat my friend three consequtive sets in a row: 21-9, 21-11, 21-8. Two days later when I played against him, the scores got reversed. He basicly knew where I was going to hit, and he could also point out the weaknesses in my pattern. So.. we must vary our shot selection and not play the same shots in the same pattern all the time.
It could've also been a bad-day for me though, I lost my technique-
[ happens when I think too much about my shot selection and stroke, etc, after filming myself play. Something was wrong with my stroke, i also lost to fellow club-members whom i can usually beat].
I later got my form back and I know what to do.
