Badminton experts feel pulse: how to practice badminton for beginners? What to practice? What should we pay attention to?

How do I train in beginning? What basic movements do you need to practice? What should you pay attention to?

(Silian Hushi-Xiaohei)

Of course, it all starts with grip of racket. Proper right and left grip is a prerequisite for learning all hand techniques. Based on this, we study power technique of hitting right and left. The technical term is called "biting action." Full mastery of technique of application of force is very important for our future technical mastery.

In fact, we usually use whipping technique to some extent. For example, when high school students throw softballs in gym class, they use whipping motions, and when kids play tops, they use whipping motions. The so-called whipping action is a superposition of speed, relaxation, starting with turning body, moving shoulders, shoulders with shoulder, shoulder with forearm, and finally swinging arm with wrist. Can you tell me which part is most important? The strength depends on whole body. Note that racket hits ball, not our muscles, and racket has no muscles. The power generated by racket is due to swing speed of racket and kinetic energy generated by speed hitting ball. So our goal is to get beat as fast as possible, got it? Speed ​​is root of our strength. Then we can start learning service technique, backcourt high and long shot technique, hitting technique, netting technique, rebounding technique, etc. When we learn two or more techniques, movement problems will arise. Before learning full court footwork, we must learn spread footwork, which is foundation of full court footwork, such as start step, parallel step, cross step, step step (now rarely used), and side-to-back run. Once you have mastered intermittent footwork, it will be easy for you to master footwork on entire court.

Above are basic techniques of introductory training. Of course, we can make some adjustments according to our personal circumstances (for example, our favorite doubles competition).

Mr. Lin, I would like to ask if you are a beginner, should you practice footwork first or technical moves first?

For a beginner, start with simplest learning, like how to hold a racket. The reason is that only if you master correct grip technique can you use rhythm intelligently and flexibly to learn different basic techniques.

Basic badminton techniques include serving, high and long shots, backcourt shots, sweeping shots, placing net in front of net, tackling ball, pushing ball, taking a corner kick in front of net, etc. Generally speaking, basic skills begin to learn Serve order, high ball, kick, put net in front of net and pick up ball.

After learning above basic techniques, start learning footwork. From broken footwork, to front court footwork, back court footwork, front and back court footwork, and full court footwork. Of course, our training organization will not be too simple. From very beginning of warm-up, we often include a decomposition of footwork, which can not only warm up, but also begin to come into contact with concept of footwork. The last training content is often footwork, which is both physical training and special training. So in terms of arrangement, technical preparation and footwork training are basically done at same time, and above order is more conceptual. Because our workouts are very targeted and incremental, without basic skills, no matter how good footwork is, it will be useless. Only by mastering more than two techniques in front and back can footwork be of practical value, because function of footwork is to connect. When we play ball in backcourt and opponent returns ball to frontcourt, we move intelligently, quickly and easily from backcourt to frontcourt to receive ball. This process of moving is called footwork. Thus, practical sequence of techniques and footwork has both a conceptual sequence and a flexible mastery of practical arrangements, and arrangement may be different for each coach. I think it's ok.
