Roots of Badminton
I just recently watched Play to Win (4 parts on youtube) and heard about Roots of Badminton. I saw 10-15 minute clips of Posture, Footwork, and Hitting Technique. Does anyone know what the other roots are? These are old videos from Coach Lee Jae Bok. I can't seem to find any purchasable copies of his dvd's either. I'm 5 years too late, but maybe someone has a resource to point me to?

Wow he has a new site...
We emailed for 2 or 3 years and I often asked him when he will release new videos on ibbs.tv.
And he did not tell me he has a new site opened :-D

Wow, really expensive I think...
October videos for players: 25 Pounds
October videos for coaches: 25 Pounds
October videos "follow coach lee": 25 Pounds
It's much more then 100$ for all videos of october??? From what I've seen you can't buy single videos, only the complete months for players or coaches...

I asked him if it it possible to buy single videos, but he answered me it is not possible :-(
Really ask me how many persons are willing to spend 100$ per month to buy all videos?!?!?!

Watching training video may help to improve game and they are not cheap
However in your place its still cheaper than coaching.
In fact if you read in bc there are a lot of good stuff and its free!
Just browse through the forum mate!

Of course there is free stuff in this forum, but this thread is about Lees videos.
I was willing to spend about perhaps 50$ for some videos, but not 25$ for a bunch of videos when I don't want to watch half of the videos I bought. If I only want to see one single videos I also have to pay 25$, don't think that makes sense. He would have earned more money if you could buy single videos...

I see he has a DVD which is £90 and includes 5 dvds
DVD 1: The Five Most Important Things in Badminton
DVD 2: Philosophy and Principles
DVD 3: Badminton Stroke Skills
DVD 4: Service, Return of Service, Net Deception and Tactics
VCD 5: Play to Win
Has any1 bought this? Is it any good??

I have bought that set of DVDs, it is an excellent investment. The things he teaches are very simple, but extremely effective. He does not focus TOO much on technique, he shows a lot, ensures you have the correct grip and such but leaves the finer details down to you. He states all the important learning points. The attitude/philosophy/mental ideas from DVD 2 are extremely good.

For most people that somewhat just started playing, its hard to watch a video and then emulate what was seen or told to do.
I definitely think its beneficial to watch at least 1 video series, but can't help to think that the information in all of them are pretty similar and pretty basic. Mostly comprising of basic stroke & footwork for various shots. A section on drills / practice, a misc section that comprises of some strategy , doubles & mixed doubles positioning, and equipment etc.
An alternative for that $100 is to spend it on a real life coach that can spot and adjust your mistakes as you play.

This is my opinion and speculation:
From watching the free videos available, I feel that the videos would be worth it for those that have the money to use on it. It is something you keep and while it is not personal like a coach, the videos have such quality in terms of experience and detail and be useful when you are able to take them into your mental understanding of the game.
It is true that different people learn and develop understanding in different ways. For those who learn through action first then reflection afterward, the videos are not useful until they have experience on the court to the level where each item in the video is applicable in their movements. For those who learn through information dissemination, processing, and interpretation before action, the videos will provide a window of experience that would take years to develop otherwise. For those between these two poles of understanding, having the video and coaching would be well worth the cost if they can afford it. The videos would cost around ~1 month of coaching but used in conjunction with professional coaching, the videos would greatly enhance 3-5 of those months of coaching for these types of learners.

I'm not saying video's are not useful, on the contrary i think they are beneficial regardless if you take coaching or what type of learner you are.
My opinion was more that
After watching about 5 different badminton video series from different producers;some series were 4-5 hrs long while others were 30+ hrs, i concluded that there wasn't any major information that one video series provided that another didn't. The ones i saw on youtube for free didn't provide more or less information than the ones i purchased.
So i do agree on all accounts that
watching a video > not watching any
watching 2 videos is only slightly more helpful than having only watched one
free video + $100 coaching > Free video + $100 video

I see what you mean. I only watch short free videos so I found all this information completely new.
