    "...try and keep your racket up and in front of you..."
    Whole people always told me this since earlier I play badminton until these days.. I have to admit this, but my self dont know why i have such bad habit

    racket behind my head is to be extra carefull that we sometimes smash our own friends LOL

    my movement, yes, i also surprise that it seems i am stand like a statue, i should do a little jump like boxing as to improve me reaction..

    few comments,
    1) the only thing make me dizzy is the viewcam shaking all the way
    2) the hall is too compact. both sides of court are ok. the rear, wall too close to the court.....
    3) why there is a shuttle below the net? not distracting?
    4) you play good. keep-up the good work.

    All are valid points. May I add that your serve and maybe it's just the video giving this impression, seems to float quite high over the net - better opponents would either kill it straight off or play a push and pout you on the defensive to start with. Saying that, your service at around 1:13 looks much better and the serve on the whole, remains better than before throughout the rest of the video so good work for improving that during the game.

    When receiving serve, it is often better to try and play a net shot or push than lift - try and make your opponents lift and put you on the attack as opposed to the other way around.

    Footwork could use some improvement - when you return the drop at 1:15, you go barrelling towards the net and seem to barely manage to stop. You probably could've made the same shot with a lot more control had you opted to take one step and a lunge. Also, anticipating the shuttle and then using good footwork to get there would help you to take the shuttle earlier and do more with it.

    When returning smashes, if you can make a shorter (as in like a net/drop shot) or flatter return (more like a drive), you will find your opponents cannot smash again and you have brought yourself/your pair back in to the rally. Sometimes, this just isn't possible though.

    Another thing to work on is consistency, at around 1:56 (just before), you put a fairly simple shot in to the net and lose the point. Consistency will come in time though so don't worry - just practise.

    At 2:02, you only just get to the shuttle and attempt a cross court net shot. It's an ambitious shot choice and I commend you for that but you didn't get there quick enough to play it properly and make it. A straight net shot that goes over has to be better than a cross court one that goes in to the net. If you get there in time to go cross-court, do it by all means but if not, a good straight net shot is also fine.

    At 3:08, you show the attacker too much court. Your partner covered one service box yet you stayed in the centre, leaving the other fairly open, your opponents capitalised. When on the defenesive, try and get side by side with your partner, it helps a lot.

    At 4:10(ish), you play a pretty nice net shot and really make your opponent reach for it, well done.

    So, to conclude, you seem to get better as the video goes on and although I have posted a lot of things that could be improved, quite a few just occurred once so there's not really a problem as such with them, just look at them and work out how to fix it for next time. Basically, if you sorted your footwork, read the game a bit better and kept your racket up, most of the mistakes wouldn't have happened so there isn't a great deal to work on, just the fundamentals and everyone can always improve their footwork, game reading and alertness. On the whole, you are not bad at all.

    I wish my camera was better or I would try and get some videos up of me!
    I haven't played since Friday which for me is a long time I shall try and get some videos taken tomorrow as I am playing I know my strenghs and weakenesses I just need them confirmed
    Strenghs
    1. Drop shots and netshots
    2. Anything that is deceptive
    3. Anything crosscourt I.e smash
    4. Reactions (I used to play as a goal keeper in football so I have good reactions and I am able to get to the shot in time)
    Weaknesses
    1. I have a habit of not getting back to the centre however when I start to move I am quite quick or so says my coach
    2. I lack power however I have the angle this only applies to smash
    I'll getthe videos up soon !

    this is the best way that other members can comment or guide.
    there are many just post/write "how to improve my smash?" "how improve my defend?" etc... quite hard to imagine the technique that you use.

    Definitely, this thread is definitely one of the best in the Training/techniques forum.

    I'll try and get permission from my sports centre to film there. I've no idea how long that'll take but once I get permission, I'll try and film a video ASAP so you can ridicule me (no, I don't think I'm that bad lol). We need more videos people, MORE!

    Others have already commented that your racket needs to be up and forward. The reason that you tend not to do it is because you are waiting for the shuttle with your non racket foot forwards. Change this to having your racket foot slightly forwards, you'll find that you now react more quickly to the shuttles and you're able to defend more positively. Your racket will be away from your body so you can cope better with hits aimed towards your right side. Good luck

    This is so true - normally people can only answe with "generic" techniques , but it helps so much to see the actual persons technique.

    I will try and video my today - but it just depends on my friend. I'll see if my video on my phone works - but I doubt it .

    I think my place has a similar rule however they ain't gonna see it if I stick my camera at the back of the court + my coach has filmed matches plenty of times so possibly tomorrow I'll video me and post it and you can see what you think
