The Badminton World Federation (BWF) has put some interesting stuff on line recently. Here is something I found about how to warm up before a game. This is from the Level 1 Coach Education course material, which is now available online at www.bwfbadminton.org.
This is the first in a series of coach education resources currently being developed by the BWF.
This video of Lee Jae Bok is more than just a simple hold and hit. He is actually executing a double deception in this demonstration. He moves in and holds as if he is going to execute a net drop. After a brief hold, he then drops the racket as if he is going to clear (lift or flick) the shuttle deep. Shortly after the racket drop, he then drops his hand (and the handle of his racket) to change the orientation of the racket face in order to hit a net shot cross-court instead.
