    Default Coaching videos from Bob Tampas, Badminton Expert

    There's a bunch of these, but I particularly like this one:

    How to Hit a Forehand Stroke

    Are you ready to unleash a furious attack with your badminton racket? Learn how to hit the forehand in this video clip.


    God bless America.

    Very useful set of videos.

    The key points in the forehand video seem to be:
    - Hit the bird only when it is below your waist.
    - Angle your returns upwards at 45 degrees
    - Follow-through as with a golf swing.
    - Do not, by any means, rotate your forearm during a swing.


    I particularly liked that there was a frisbee on the grass behind him...so you can be sure what he was teaching next. Ahhhh, a master in the forgotten sport of Classic Greek Biathlon (badminton-frisbee).

    Whoops, I got his name wrong: it's Bob Hunt, from Tampa in Florida. Sorry Bob!

    Sssshh, keep it quiet. I'm hoping Bob won't recognise my plagiarism.

    And henceforth, it'll be known as Bob's Badmitten Bible.

    Yes, it's important to get a run-up for power.

    Did he really say "when this game gets fast and there's a bit of wind, it gets difficult" ?

    Take a look at the 'slow motion' serve on 1:00min of "how to grip a badmitten racket", it's just the worst mishit possible...

    What a goldmine...

    guys, he meant the sport of badmitten, completely different from what we know as badminton
    clearly he's an expert at badmitten, and not at badminton
