Badminton tutorial, 6 steps, easy to learn and easy to practice, I will bookmark it first!

Whether it's playing badminton or watching badminton, we all love feeling of jumping high and then "clicking" and ball hits ground hard! But when he came to play alone, he often had involuntary, not to mention ugly movements, and lacked lethality. How to make ball heavier? It's a hard kill that we're going to share today, hoping to give you a more detailed answer.

For ease of learning, I will divide splitting process into 6 steps and explain it in detail. Hope you get hang of it quickly. These 6 steps are: 1. Bend your knees, 2. Raise yourself, 3. Draw your bow, 4. Rotate your shoulder out, 5. Draw in your stomach and bend your bow, 6. Rotate in and hit ball. Let's take a look together.

1. Bend your knees

Bending knees is a very important movement before takeoff, but it is often overlooked. The function of bending knees is to compress body, get more elasticity and make next bounce more powerful. As shown below:

  • Note. The whole body will "bend" as you bend your knees to prepare. So, hands should be pressed to body, and not apart and not raised. This helps body to be stronger when it is exposed.

  • 2. Takeoff

    The push-off after bending knees is process of "relaxing" body. Hands up, non-clapping hands should be slightly higher than clapping hands; Both legs push off ground With force, body bounces up, and calf bends back.

  • Notes before takeoff:

  • Hands: Raise your arms up to push your body up; at apex of jump, your non-holding clapping arms basically straighten out and then retract. While holding applauding hand, extend it back to make bow motion.

  • Both legs: The quality of takeoff, besides force of actively pulling body up, most important is reaction force created by both legs hitting ground. The stronger blow, more reaction force body receives, as in a standing long jump.

  • 3. Stretch bow

    Most people can bend their knees and push off, but they can't hit ball successfully. The reason is this: after repulsion, body is straight and there is no backward movement. Just like with a bow, if you don't draw it hard, you won't have strength.

    So, when taking off, you need to deflect body back. At this time, with “breast stretch” action, pull elbow back while holding clap. This will be main movement of body arching back. Thus, first action after repulsion is: Holding clap, pull elbow joint back, demonstrating action of drawing bow. Allow chest to expand and body to lean back.

    This not only increases force of ball but also brings point of impact closer to you.

    4. Rotation of arm outward

    Drawing bow, stretching chest, kicking back, and hooking legs are all actions that take place in process of repulsion, and purpose of these actions is to make next shot more powerful.

    When jump culminates, it is also time when body is at its most "exposed". Next action: raise elbow and forearm and lower back, and pull racket back< /strong>. Two precautions in this process: ①elbow joint forward and upward, ②forearm external rotation. As shown below:

  • Note.

  • ①Raising elbow: it does not rise directly from state of flat lift to highest point, but from state of pulling bow back, leading forward and upward, and forearm Take elbow joint as an axis from vertical to horizontal.

  • ②Outward rotation of shoulder: in fact, if above point is reached, shoulder will naturally rotate outward. When pulling elbow, forearm drops back and large arm rotates outward naturally. When you read this, you can try it empty handed to see if it looks like~

  • 5. Tummy tuck

    Summarizing above steps, we find that:

  • ①Before takeoff, we retract and body contracts; ②When taking off, body expands; we hit ball.

  • Next, you need to relax your calves by going from tilted back to upright. At this time, the whole body is basically perpendicular to ground, so do a good job of pulling in belly and preventing arching. Get ready. As shown below:

    Abdomen pull: This is main source of force to counteract bending of body, belly is pulled inward, which is useful for tilting upper body forward. The goal is to make downforce of hitting ball more sufficient, feel of ball hitting ground. After closing abdomen, upper body leans forward, shins swing forward, and body leans forward, as shown in image below: (This is opposite of our original bow drawing, which is why it is called anti-bow). .)

  • Abdominal control goal:

  • Use power of your waist and abdomen to increase your body rotation;

  • "Eject" power. As belly is drawn in, upper body leans forward and then power is thrown forward from arms to enhance "whip" effect. . Similar to Carp standing upright. As shown below:

  • 6. Internal rotation

    When hitting ball, we need to pay attention to following points:


    Any action before hitting ball will affect force of hitting ball, and same is true for racquet grip. Constant tightening of racquet only increases internal friction of power. When hitting ball, you only need to grab racket and apply force at moment of hitting ball. During entire process of hitting ball, movements of racket are as follows: loose→tight→loose. As shown below:

    When drawing bow, fingers are relaxed. You can use "palm empty" (relax last three fingers) or "hukou empty" (relax first two fingers) method, then raise your elbow and pull racket back;

    In whipping action, after blocking elbow, fingers gradually grab racket. There is an instant surge of power when hitting ball, and fingers completely grip racket, ready for next hit.

    ②Key point

    Because vast majority of people first learn high ball and then learn how to break ball. Therefore, when hitting ball, they will follow pumpkin. Not only are movements very similar, but point of impact is same. This makes everyone feel that it is difficult to break and cannot be pressed. The point of impact on impact must be closer and lower so that ball goes down rather than parallel or up. As shown in figure below: Compare surface of racket and impact point of high ball and impact ball.

    So main point of hitting ball is footwork, people are behind ball, not under ball. This is only way you can make sure your point of impact is in front and not on top of your head so you can push down. The choice of point of impact also directly affects power of hitting ball. If you find that you have finished your movements, but cannot kill ball, and your strength is not enough, check your point of impact. Is it too far behind?

    Above are 6 steps to kill orb that seem complicated and difficult. After such a decomposition, do you think it is much easier? The weekend is coming, everyone quickly picks up a racket and tries.
