Push = Movement with a constant speed with the swing of the racket-head
in chinese, a push shot is not expained like this, in general, pushes are divided into two types, underarm push and overarm push, according to the height of the return of shuttle at midcourt or near the net, and, based on the concrete situations, you can choose a gentle action or a sudden action with rotation of the wrist to push the shuttle.
the most important, you'd better grasp the oppotunity as you can, ensure the height of shuttle, push the shuttle by overarm push, and get a good effect.

Badminton Strokes/Shots that we wish to know
Please feel free to add more Badminton terms for us, BCers.
Do post some of the Chinese articles. You'll never know, other BCers could translate them.
Also, correct translation is not as important as the idea/description of the various Badminton Strokes/Shots that we wish to know.

The pushshot is a gentle but accurate shot often used in Doubles
Correct. That's what I meant.
The pushshot is a gentle but accurate shot often used in Doubles.
It is directed to an area that causes trouble as to whom of the opponent partners is best to return it. It is to cause hesitation between them partners; And by the time it is returned, their late return is usually not a good one.

Alrighty, I'll try my best to explain The tap is basically the same as the Net Kill while the flick is a flat shot executed at the net area that travels in a flat manner, in a way it's like a very flat lift in the forecourt~

Tap, Kill and Flick
For me, the following terms have these meaning:
* Tap = A softer, but a controlled stroke.
* Kill = A hard-hitting downward "wild" stroke.
* Flick = An upward wrist stroke (directing the shuttlecock higher than horizontal - at any degrees with an upward elevation).
For the flat shot executed that travels in a flat manner, I use the terms:-
"Dab" (when executed in front of one's body), and
"Drive" (when executed from either sides of one's body).
Yes, our Badminton terms usage can be very different worldwide. That's why I started this thread. As mentioned in Post #1 :

Shots from in front of their bodies in a flat manner just over the net-tape

I don't know. Like I said, I'm no pro. Drives maybe ?

Drives and Dabs
Yes, many BCers call them "Drives".
But here, we distinguish between the strokes taken whether in front of one's body, and/or from the side of one's body.
As a professional coach, I tell my trainees the "Dab" is a very useful shot to be used in Doubles. They spend much time to get to train to play it well (with maximum power).
