Badminton-Footwork Skill (1) How to Start from the Base


To me this is one of the most important step in badminton. Ok, lets say I am standing here I am waiting for my opponent to hit until my opponent hit shuttle cock I have no idea and after he hits I have to respond it in short space of time there fore I have to have step to push my body off to the shuttle cock as fast as possible, which is this step. so, waiting here shuttle been hit there then do that, ok. Shuttle goes there and move ready, move. side 1 2 3 4 ready backhand look, this step allows you to push off in all different directions. so lets say here 1 net kill, 1 tap, 1 2 3 1 2 , 1 2 3 but if I don’t do that step compare, 1 2 , 1 2, 1 2 3 I can’t get to the shuttle fast. because I already start from the floor my opponent can deceive me. but if you do that unlikely you will be caught by the opponent. James training with me for 3 years, and this is one of the element he has been training on that. ok ready gently move, try to push off ready, go, 1 2 3 go yes same, go yup one more go every time he move to the corner, the first step he is doing is this. ok, now same without first step ok, no first step go go haha, he did it go yes, as you see it after I say go he can’t go because he can’t push off many club players are doing this step so, if you are training this way of movement you are missing the most important element in badminton movement. now compare again, move go go yes go now same at the net ready go yup go very good backhand, go yup go ok, same does not matter which corner you are moving to the first step you have to do is that that, that, there, there, there, this this is the first step in badminton, singles, doubles, mixed doubles does not matter. ok now one more no starter step just go go without first step he will try to get there faster, he can’t, can’t now compare, please go yup go now without first step go yes, see ok thank you so, if you are not doing this first step it looks like you are starting the car with gear number 3 gear number 3 takes too long to get started. this step is gear number 1 in when you are driving a car so, remember hold it, shuttle goes there don’t go shuttle goes do this surprisingly you will find out, you will get to the shuttle much quicker
