Not too shabby..
Your opponent, wearing the black shorts, is pretty good. Played so relax. A lot of trick, wrist shots...good stamina, too, with those jumpsmashes..

Level C, really???
Here we just "kampong" player, like just neighborhood social player, like level Z maybe
He he I know my opponent is good, and he is 50 years old, and just recover from severe ankle injury couple months back and only like 160 cm tall.
That was first time we played, and we lost miserably .

I havn't seen , the whole video - only looked at it briefly.
First thing I noticed , is you did lift the serves a lot of the time?

maybe a few things to help you out:
- you could do it a little bit faster to simulate game situations more.
Don't do it too fast though, you still got to focus on correct movement.
- When you go to the net, you tend to bring your racket high, which is good because you need to take the shuttle as high as possible. But you bend your knees in a strange way. Don't do that, just do a quick shuffle or a lunge to the net so you don't lose speed or height by bending your knees.
I think people will agree on this, please comment if I'm wrong.
I hope I helped you a little.

You definatly have a good spring in your step, you're very light on your feet, kudos!
But maybe you can improve that by bending your knees a bit, keeping your legs more tense. Because you're so very upright you seem to have some difficulties going for the smash retrun steps.
my second point: you have the sequence of steps to your forehand corner exactly reversed: you push off with your left foot, and end up with some difficulty to face the shuttle.
Look carefully at Taufiks footwork http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Lh04AxI6aw
-push off with both feet
-right, left, right

haha I was just watching that old video of me with my bad habits
racquet not held high
Not being able to clear effortlesly cause of the grip
Not really much of a smash
Now all of that has been adjusted thank goodness
I plan to make a new video possibly in the next week and get it up sometime next week

You can vary your service return instead of always lifting high. You need to be faster to do this. A net service return will force the other side to net exchange or lift.
Always split step when opponents hit the shot. This will make you move faster. In some cases you don't move immediately after opponents hit the shot. I'm not sure why.
Don't always lift when you're in front, unless you have concluded you have a disadvantage in net exchanges.

- That high energy/relaxed looking player is 50 yrs old? Well, he sure didn't look like that age. I can imagine him playing with his ankle injury fully healed..

I havent' seen the entire video, watched a minute or two, but it seems like your base position is very close to the front? Around front service line. This may help with retrieving stuff around the net, but it also means you have to take an extra step to reach the back. I'd say, try to move your base position back, maybe 2 feet behind the front service line, so you'll have better reach around the back.

As far as tips go...footwork to your back corners needs a little fixing. If you move like that when you play, you will trip over your feet or just basically have a hard time moving. I'm not very good at explaining, I'd show you if I were playing any time soon. But then again, I don't consider myself good enough to teach anything.

From Taufik video what I see is always split drops before he moves and to the forehand corner he lunges with the right foot and left foot drag and he returns to his base.
To do list for now:
-stay lower not so upright
-move base back a little bit
-back corner fixing (not sure how though)
thanks for commenting
will post another one soon for further help

about the move quicker part:
just try and copy the pace of a real match.
like when you go to the left for your low backhand. try and do that a bit faster beacause in a match, that will probably be a smash you will be returning at that spot. so you need to be explosive there.
you also tend to walk back to your basic position, try and do that a little faster.
the rest is good and your footwork to the over the head corner is very good if you ask me
