Thread: deceptive shots

I watched a video of Peter Gade vs Chen Hong and when Peter Gade used a deceptive shot on Chen Hong the commentor said something about a double action. What does this double action mean?And how does it work?
the shot was done around 0:24 in the video.

I can't view the video from work, but from the looks of it - double action would also mean double motion. It is more or less where a player makes an initial racquet movement in one direction before withdrawing the racquet to hit in another direction. That is what makes the shots deceptive.
I could be wrong in terms of what you were trying to ask :P

That makes sense I wonder how I could actually put that into game play -.-...

wow gade's footwork to get back and hit that smash AND drive off his left leg to retrieve CH's net shot is a thing of beauty

training deceptive / delayed action
once you mastered that stroke, all deceptive / delayed action starts from there. when you're approaching the net, stick your racket out as usual, wait for the shuttle come over, like catching it, that will draw your opponent up to the net, that moment gives you an option of either a net touch, or flick your wrist at the last moment and leave your opponent feet glued to the ground.
hard to put actions into words, give it a try mate...

lol i was supposed to practice catching birdies with my racket so that i could learn how to master picking up a birdie ;D. Now i can kill two birds with one stone. Thanks

Check out this video by a renowned coach JB Lee.
Double and triple action!
But you have to be able to get to the bird early enough to give you this option.

if you are just a beginner, then focus on doing the netshot correctly first before trying to do fancy stuff.
don't learn to run before you can walk.

And I agree with Kwun, learn the basics before we deceive others, or we end up deceiving ourselves...

I agree for singles, but when you're playing doubles, you don't need a lot of time to get to the base (unless you and your partner are both at the net).
Footwork is important for the whole game, not just deceptive shots. Fine & delayed action of your wrist and fingers is the key to deceptive shots.
