    Since it is often rather difficult to find the few good badminton technique clips in the internal sea of bad to mediocre ones, I'd like to highlight a rather new YouTube channel which is presenting some high quality content and deserves to get some attention in the BC community:

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfRMnJ4f02bKXts3OE8eOEw

    The topics covered are presented with a lot of detailed explanation and well made slow-motion clips and imo they are entertaining to watch.

    Some background on Tobias as found in the channel info page:

    "My name is Tobias Wadenka, i am professional Badminton Coach and Badminton Player. After a successful youth career with several national titles i moved to the german national training center in 2013, trained with the national squad and played international badminton tournaments all over the world, competing mainly in Mensingles.

    Since i moved back to my hometown in 2016 i am now half player and half coach. On one hand i am still competing in national and international events and train almost on a daily basis. On the other hand i am also working as a coach for the federation, where i train youth top players and educate other coaches.

    I am certified A-Trainer (highest badminton coaching license in Germany), and i am about to finish my BWF Level 3 Education as well as a special elite coach mentoring course. With this channel, i want to help as many people as possible to improve their badminton game and/or coaching by tutorials for all levels of players and coaches."

    And here are some clips that caught my attention in the first place:










    I hope you guys will enjoy it as much as I do. Oh, and thanks to @Mr Arc2 for the tip. :)

    I highly recommend Tobias' videos. The videos answer all the questions you had and even things you had not thought about before.
    If there are still questions: Tobias answers questions in the comments very often.
    Oh yeah, don't forget to read the video descriptions for a summary and additional information.
    Great resource

    I've come across Tobias' channel recently, definitely one of the very best I would say.

    Clear and concise yet contains all the details you might ever need without showing overly complex.

    There is a lot of content on YouTube these days, and finding the good stuff amongst the mediocre, downright bad and even the odd scammer, it can be very difficult to find the best material. This is very much at the high quality end.

    One of the greatest things about his videos are that he mentions drills and common mistakes which can help you to learn the techniques. Definitely one of the best badminton youtubers out there!

    Tobias may have some competition. To be fair, Tobias wins on quantity and quality.
