    Zoiks, I came in a wee bit too late in this thread, but here's something to share. My coach charges £20 per 2 hour session. At times I train abut 4 hours a week. Staying back as a sparring partner to younger kids.

    My coach stresses on techniques and tactics when playing and I'm drilled accordingly all the time. He is an assiatant coach to the Welsh Badminton Union. I too sometimes see Irwan Syah nurturing younger talents. He is friendly and at times we joked about in Malay and my coach will be scratching is head in curiosity what we are chatting about. Irwan states that Rexy might be coming over in a few weeks and we will be introduced~! I just can't wait to Rexy! Once of my favourite doubles with Ricky Subagja.

    Back to coaching, my coach stresses on proper techniques all the time and that stamina will increase over time. I've just trained about 6 sessions and I can feel that my stamina increases over time. Its remarkable~! Yesterday after fed up of watching the lagging coolstream Sudirman Cup, I went for badminton instead. I played many games one after another and I played a '1 against 2' game. I won the rubber set and yet didn't feel that exhausted. So I reckon what my coach said is kinda true. He never rushes me and always asks me to take things step by step doing it the proper way. He is Chinese by the way. An ex-international I think?

    My coach said that badminton evolves through time. What may be proper in the golden 80s era is not so proper now. That is why badminton games now are so much faster and more exciting to watch. (I'm comparing Lin Dan to Zhao Jianhua/ Yang Yang) Techniques are much different eh? Somehow true I reckon. The fact that I started late in badminton means that its unlikely I can join the National Squad~! :crying:

    I stopped around that time too. I have the same feeling, Beng Teong is too busy, i felt "neglected" at times.


    But the real reason was that i could not afford to have a pro coach since i started my small little family early this year and the fee saved could be used for grocery etc. :p

    Kamen, you were under him too? You don't happen to be the one who told him I wrote an 'article' about him in BF?? I think he meant this thread. I was like :confused: when he mentioned it to me. I'm still wondering how he knows. Lol! I'm waiting for the opportunity to ask him, but he's away with his player at some tournament I think.

    Nearly one year under him was great though. My strokes improved a lot.

    Lol! That figures. I was stunned when he told me he knew about the 'article'. Next thing he's scolding me for not writing an article on Suteash, his current trainee and ranked 1st for women singles in Malaysia. I'm like, :confused:

    Who doesn't like compliments? ;) But Commonwealth champion? He's yet to have exaggerated that far...

    Man, all the men who train under him are very very deceptive players. I played with a few of them before, their deception was... wow. Had my feet all tangled up on court. Lol. Likely you're one of these who learnt all the deception from him. Experience + more coaching on deceptiveness=sprawled opponents.

    Yes, I must admit I love badminton. Perhaps a bit too much. Hehehe.

    Joanne, if you suffer from aches or you recover slower than normal after badminton games, I suggest you try some tropical enzymes like papain and bromelain. Both are excellent natural anti-inflammation fighters and they will also improve your blood blood circulation. I found this out from a Hong Kong orthopedic surgeon who prescribed papain instead of nsaids, the latter can be nasty to your stomach, for my wife.
    Also, I understand boxers take papain and bromelain before a fight to lessen the usual inflammation they suffer after a fight. Boxing is one of the most bruising sports with aches and pain like no other.
    The best way to take in papain and bromelain is to put them between your gums and cheek and let them be absorbed into your body slowly, which takes about 30mins. They should be taken on an empty stomach, at least 30 mins before or 3 hours after a meal. Taking them orally is not as effective.
    I take them every day, always papain and bromelain together, two to three times a day. My stiff and aching knees have since disappeared. I recover from games faster and I can feel that my blood circulation has improved significantly.
    Papain is made from papayas and bromelain from pineapple. Yes, you can take these two fruits in quantity to get the papain and bromelain but they are not as effective as the tablets that are absorbed through the gums/cheek. You can get papain and bromelain from the many dispensaries in Malaysia. If you buy them in lots of 100 or 1000 tablets they cost very little, roughly about 12-15 Malaysian cents for each papain tablet and 17-20 Malaysian cents for each bromelain tablet.
    I started on these natural tropical enzymes a few months ago and I have recommended them to a few of my playing mates. Recently, I was surprised to find that many other players, who are strngers to me, also take them. On checking with them they revealed that they were recommended the enzymes by some of the players who play with me regularly. The dispensaries around the area I play badminton, Tuen Mun, are now selling lots of papain and bromelain, to people who don't take them orally but in between the gums and the cheek. Amazing! But true.

    Wow! He was really a Commonwealth champ!

    So sue me. I'm not really interested in the national players, their achievements etc.:p

    When you starting training with him again?

    taneepak, thanks for that interesting bit of info.. now I'm just wondering why you suddenly came up with that topic.:confused: Nevermind, I'll PM you.
