Shouting while smashing, and used as an intimidation
Hi, Im Migzz, 16 yrs old, badminton fanatic/contender from Philippines
I'm a Men's doubles champion of our district and our division, and now will be competing against all the districts in our province, (hope we could reach the regionals)
and i would just like to ask and discuss if Shouting while smashing is OK while on a tournament? Cause on our last tournament, i received a warning because of shouting when im about to smash,
i use it as a deceptive shot, for example: "exaggerating my movements, pretending that im preparing to smash, then as soon as i see my opponents ready to defend my smash at the back of the court, ill just flick it to make the shuttle drop right infront of the net, then they cant reach the shuttle cause they anticipated that it was a smash"
the umpire said it was illegal, and almost have given me a yellow card, for doing it for the second time, i was very pissed off, cause me and my partner cant manipulate the game wisely
Is it illegal to use shouting as a deceptive shot?

Where I play in California, it is definitely not illegal. Many professional players also shout before a smash to trick their opponents. I don't know why the umpire said it was illegal.

There is a line between shouting, and intimidation. For example, if you are celebrating a point, you cant raise your fist and shout while glaring at the opponent. So often you see pros turn away before they celebrate. So maybe you overdid the shouting into what the umpire considered to be over-aggression?
Personally I just keep a poker face. No sense in motivating the opponent to try harder lol. Even things like the umpire warning you can help motivate an opponent.

cause i red a book, about killing an opponent (Obviously, it was a martial art book that i could not remember what the title was) and it said that deep intimidation makes your opponent weak even though he's much better than you, im trying to apply that tactic on badminton, but maybe some umpires disagree with that style, Thanks for posting a reply

Markis Kido definitely shouldn't play in your region..
He shouts very loud. I don't think there's any problems with shouting.. but it is banned at some minor tournaments.

From what I understand: shouting to celebrate a point is okay, shouting when smashing is tolerated..
But shouting for no apparant reason is distracting your opponent, which is indeed illegal

Screaming sometimes gives more power.

Agh, I find shouting annoying, even when celebrating a point. The only time I actually utter a sound is when I tell myself how crap the last shot I played was.. it usually comes out as a Nnhhhghgyaa.
Just play the game, win with your shots not your macho.

You shouldn't be using Killer Instinct Mode when your opponent is hot! Softly softly catchee monkey.

there's nothing wrong with glaring at someone. but if you combine it with shouting and waving fists, then that's probably going too far. although you can take a lot of lessons fron a kung fu book, there's a limit to how much you should apply to other matters.

Any how, it would work as a distraction.. he/she will be thinking about something else, and not concentrate on the game
