    Sorry, I've been pretty busy and will continue to be so for a while. Only got to watch part of the first video. What I've seen is that you do indeed contact the shuttle too low and have too much of an angle to your arm at the point of contact. I'm no expert on it as I have the same problem, but what seems to help me with that problem is focussing on contacting the shuttle high and getting most of the power out of the torso, rotating it into the shot and letting the shoulder and elbow move fluidly and effortlessly. Working on rotator cuff strength (=shoulder stability) and shoulder mobility is also likely to help (working on the rotator cuff is preventive, as increasing mobility may cause instability otherwise).
    If you have the room, try practicing the motion very slowly and controlled without a shuttle to get used to the feeling, reaching as high up as possible and then just angling the elbow a teeny tiny bit to avoid locking it (always an invitation for injury).
    I think FHF mentions it in one video, the key to a good smash is a fluid motion, not focussing on hitting it hard as that causes a stiff and thus slow racket arm.

    So, got around to taping another couple of casual matches in training. Had good fun, testing out a couple of rackets, and as you can see, matches weren't deadly serious Had a good start to the first set myself!
    Sadly, not such great movement as leg strength is not quite where I want it to be and the Achilles tendons have been acting up again. Gonna focus on recovery and conditioning a bit more for the time being, and with exams around the corner, not much (if any) time for badminton remains :S
    Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the match, and find the time to comment!

    Drew

    Do a clear, half smash or drop routine.

    When you step back and draw back your arm to go into the ready position for overheads, with the turn of your body, note the following in practice routines (not games):

    1) start the movement at the point when your practice partner hits the shuttle

    2) turn so that your body and hips face parallel to the side of the court.

    3) make sure the elbow and hand cannot be seen by the person on the other side of the net.

    4) racquet pointing up to ceiling

    5) hit the shuttle reaching upwards with the full turn; change of leg position so your right foot is forward. You will need to jump upwards slightly if you are reaching up to strike the shuttle.

    6) chassť step forward towards base, then back to 1)

    Practice the good habits. It's easy to practice incorrectly if attention is not paid to detail. I put it into a check list format to help you with the details - you can take the list on to court and check each point. Obviously, I have taken j4ckie's points and reformatted it hopefully making it easier to practice on court.

    IMHO, you have improved some consistency, you have got a bit faster but these are more due to better physical strength rather than a vast improvement in technique.

    It's good you put up the video; so much easier to give targeted advice.

    Another match in training, taped on Monday. Was a bit shocked about my legs and movement (certainly felt better than it looks ), I guess I'll have to spend a lot of time in the gym to correct that...
    As always, any comments and/or advice are very welcome. I'm the tall guy in green if you don't know me already

    your partner really crowds you when you are defending straight. There is a lot of room on the XC for him to cover (e.g. 4.36). At this time you're not defending square on and that's why the hip shot was especially tricky.

    6.40 your partner is very slow in to the front - he's watching you play the shot instead of moving!

    didn't watch much more - at work!

    Thanks Yeah, still working on the defense. Partly I don't really play all that serious in training, partly it's still the bad habit of turning my feet sideways (in this case, purely bad habit, not being playful). I think 7:35 and 9:40 are my favorite rallies so far Very rare I get to play my favorite shot in doubles, and successfully to boot

    Forgot to post this video! Just a friendly session. Jamie is injured so he isn't moving very well in this game.

    Enjoy.

    I love those shots as well, but I over play them. People that know me well at club expect it now. I'm working on a 'show straight, fake xc net, play straight net' shot for sh!ts and giggles.

    I think the positioning of the two is correct here (his partner obv covers the middle AND the crosscourt, because noone smashes crosscourt...), but j4ckie should get rid of his (awkward!!!) tendency of trying to defend everything with his left foot in front...;-)

    Thanks for making me feel like Boe! But sadly for me, you're spot on about the foot position. No problem against slightly lower level pairs, then all of a sudden gets really important against equally strong players...

    Not this year, had foot surgery in November before I entered any tournaments. Hopefully will be able to next year if nothing else fails...

    Please review my game, I am on the farside wearing sleeveless black.

    Background. I thought I would never pay again when I had a major injury 1 year back. I tore my knee (ACL) during a football match and was surgically fixed. Lot of pain and trauma-but the luv for the game helped me recover. Now almost back to where I was before the injury-except that I am not jumping any more and very cautious for around the head shots.
