Badminton Smooth Drop
Chen Weihua Badminton Training - Episode 10 (Mandarin with English Subtitles)
Hosted by Coach Chen Weihua, coach of world champions
In this intermediate badminton training video, Coach Chen Weihua goes over the smooth drop shot technique. The smooth drop shot and the forehand drop shot has a similar swing and contact point. The main difference between the smooth drop and the forehand drop is final wrist rotation. On a forehand drop shot, the wrist leads the racket in a clockwise motion slicing downwards, while on the smooth drop, the motion is counter-clockwise. Another difference between the forehand and smooth drop is that there is more space when holding the racket. Basically, only 3 fingers are used; the thumb, index finger, and middle finger, to generate power and control the shuttle.
