    Default position of shuttle during smash + j.smash

    i dont exactly have proper training with badminton, but i would like to think i'm decent, but still learning, so could someone clear this up for me (as there usually isnt anyone to correct me whenever i play):

    i was wondering about the shuttle position while smashing, i usually get a relatively high powered shot with good angle just by weight bearing on the left leg and sort of kicking with the right (almost like a tennis kick serve), when i hit these the shuttle is usually just in front of my body, therefore i get all the momentum and body weight into the shot - i assume every does this? or is there a better way?

    also recently i've been trying to learn jump smashes, and i just cant seem to hit them over the net, i can hit them with lots of power, but i cant clear the net, i'm just wondering where the shuttle position should be when i do jump serves. in front of body? directly above body??

    that way i can practice the jump smash more correctly thanks, or alter my normal ground smash if theres a better method,

    Check out some videos on youtube by Rasmussen. It's excellent. I have posted this years ago and have always been told to keep practising - not very useful back then. I think questions pertaining to timing, positioning, as best as anyone can describe here in all possible constituent breakdowns, it is better to keep on trying. I started off by hopping a little for a smash and then eventually going for a real jump whack.

    Check out Rasmussen's video first.

    Personally I wouldn't attempt a jump smash without guidance from either a very good club player or a coach. Rsamussen's videos are excellent, and obviously he knows what he's talking about, but a video can only demonstrate. A coach will correct errors, help with breaking techniques down, offer suggestions for practise, and help you to avoid injury that you might otherwise incur due to poor technique.
    Jump smash is an advanced technique.

    ok so jump smash is just like regular smashing
    except
    you have to jump and turn your body alittle bit
    go to where you would do a regular smash then turn your body to the right alittle and jump smash using your whole arm

    oh okays, cools, yea i've chked Ras's jump smash vid, been trying it, he tell us to use both arms to start low and throw them up so it goes with our body momentum to get a high jump, but i always end up just jumping and not hitting it on time, as it takes way too long to bring my arm up and hit it, i usually just begin with the racket arm back already, but i think i might give the little baby jumps and then slowly increase but by the looks of it i should find a coach thanks guys

    my advice is for you to reach a certain level of proficiency with your normal scissor-jump smash first. The description of your smashing technique sounds a little queer to me...maybe you could post a video of yourself..

    agree with monster on this one, btw my first quote...horee
    i also started the jump smash with the assistance of rasmussens vids. Rasmussen rocks! funny how he speaks (check out the rasmussens footwork too)
    What i find most difficult is to get the timing right. if you're too early or too late you have a big chance to smash in the net.
    Now i luv forcing high lifts so that i can execute it with powerrrr.
    Anyway my suggestion to keep practicing it. ask your partner to give you extremely high lifts so that you have plenty of time to get in the right position. like rasmussen says jump, open up, smash, end in the right position. remember timing is the key and focus on the technique. personally the scissors,back and side jump smash is more difficult and thus for later concern. cheers and goodluck!

    Try not to jump smash 'defensive clears'. Your racket might have more contact with the feathers and result in a failure. Try to jump smash bad clears or offensive clears =)
