Badminton Smash Skill (8) What and How to Practice to make Smash Powerful

January 24, 2020

My next point is how to improve your smash my answer is three practice, practice and practice this is good practice for players who is not sure how to use the wrist the players using shoulder to smash instead of writst remember the main power 80-90% of power in smash is created by wrist, not arm, not shoulder so the wrist has to be used, to feel it this is empty badminton box, make like that sit down in the chair, so nothing else has to be used. you have to use only wrist. ok set, left foot here right here like that come in front, so ready set not not arm it is wrist if you have a mirror, its better to face mirror if you don’t have a mirror, use a window so that you can see yourself so lets practice, set one – set smash two three four twenty rest, relax and then set one, like this what you have to do is really smash ready you have to imagine shuttle been hit set shuttle come left bang ready, do that twenty ten sets every day one two three four five six, two – one two three four five six, three… do twenty, 10 sets ok watch this, James come practice one two three four five ten ok ok now, you can do this way 10 stand still set 10, ready go one you cant two three four now attack, ten ok, so he did stand still hit, to know timing and power and you move with step to learn training steps that’s one set and you can do 10 sets you can do 10 and 10 one set or you can do 15 and 15 one set if you are really stronger you can do 20 and 20 one set and usually train about 10 set ok lets do second set, stand still go one two watch it higher three more wrists -four- bang yup five ten ok now set, you say 1, its better to call himself 1, it means opponent hit then you make steps one two stop as he did, with this practice you must do one and then remember to do the loading step one two ten, ten now, you can use cover, ok now ready feed it please, with racket set one two three four five you can use racket cover or you can use heavy racket, you can buy heavy racket for badminton in any badminton shops two three times heavier than normal racket ok, go 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 well done

    Most of the power comes from rotation of the forearm, otherwise known as pronation, not wrist flapping. Wrist flapping should be kept to a minimum.

    Sir i am been following you since many days. But i have always feel my smash in spite of following your technique. I tried mirror pratice. Found the below issue. When i stop before taking a shot ( i,e a postion of archer) my elbow is coming side app 90Degree before i raise to hit a shuttle. As it is from front side i am not able to visualize if this is correct action. MY energy which i am storing for shot think it being wasted. Need your advice to improve this.

    Lee sir, I am playing badminton for 3 yrs now. Recently I have noticed that whenever I try to hit smash hard, the portion of my elbow starts paining. Just wanted to know few things from you sir.
    1- is there anything wrong with my form or hitting position that my elbow is paining
    2- during smash more power comes from where… Elbow or shoulder.
    Thank you

    I really like your videos since they are detailed but explained simply. Inspiring.
    However, its better when you use a microphone yourself or make a voice-over to the clip since the built-in camera microphone takes up all the echo and huge reverb in the hall. Annoying and hard to hear what you need to hear.
    Otherwise, perfect!
