  1. That is a good question. there are different ways to do it depending on where the shuttlecock is. more detailed clips will be made soon to explain them. Lee

  2. I think this must be the answer to my shoulder pain too! The arc smash that I do! I must try straight elbow tomorrow and check. 🙂 Yu are good coach Lee.

  3. Thank you very much Coach Lee, you have helped me improve all aspects of my badminton. Looking forward to learning more from you.

  4. I am very pleased to know and thank you for posting your comment.
    I am hoping to upload more soon. Lee

  5. my coach tells me to point my elbow straight forward and my arm at the side of my head then swing straight. Is that wrong?

  6. Sometime that could be right. There is no one fix right way as badminton match requires all different ways to hit in different situation. Lee

  7. 70-80% from wrist and rest from other part of body (feet, shoulder, arm, left arm turning, fingers and others) in my view. Lee

  8. I understand what you mean, but my coach said to ALWAYS hit this way and not throw the elbow outwards like how you teach, because "it is wrong". It's really awkward for me and unnatural, I'll just tell my coach im not doing it his way :P. Thanks for your reply!!

  9. Coach, do you have any advice concerning a tennis elbow that I have since several months?  thank you!
