Ideal Contact Point for Backcourt Overhead Shots | Backcourt Forehand Slice Badminton Drop

Zhao Jianhua & Xiao Jie Badminton Training - Episode 5 (Mandarin with Chinese & English Subtitles)
Hosted by Former Badminton World Champion Zhao Jianhua & Badminton Coach Xiao Jie

Ideal Contact Point for Backcourt Overhead Shots | Backcourt Forehand Slice Badminton Drop

Guest Wang Yan Zhang's Weakness:
Yan Zhang's shots are not very threatening because his contact point is too low. Also, his serves are uncoordinated.

Coach Xiao Jie's Solution:
Yan Zhang's contact point is low because his arm is bent and to his side. Ideally, his arm should be straight at the point of impact.

Thank you both for this excellent training web site. I discovered it just in time to help train my 9 year old son who loves badminton. The tip about landing on the heel of foot for final step is fantastic - now he will not suffer the same knee injuries as I did. Teaching him the correct footwork has been very useful - and when he sees "adults" being taught the correct footwork he understands it's significance.
Thanks again!
