  1. All your videos are enlightening. I would love to see some very technical videos, as wrist positions and grips for advanced cross court sliced drops, smashes and subterfuge shots. cheers.

  2. I have one more doubt…do I need to look for placement before hitting or at the time of contact…please post a video for look, think and hit…my basic problem is placement. I am not sure when to look the opponent's court for vacant spot.. thanks in advance

  3. Dear Lee,

    first I want to thank you for your videos, you greatly improved my badminton game.

    I also play recreational tennis and I must ask you one thing:

    What you teach here is (in my honest opinion) exact opposite to what tennis teacher teach you when playing tennis. Almost everybody tends to move eyes from the ball too early, causing head moving to early, pulling entire body and resulting with often mishit. So they always emphasize that old "WATCH THE BALL" mantra.

    I know that tennis and badminton are different in many aspects (I still struggle not to play badminton with wide – the whole arm – not using much wrist movement), but in this issue of "watching the ball" I don't think there should be difference.

    Am I wrong?

    Sorry if I ask stupid question, and thank you again for your kindly sharing your huge knowledge on the game.

    regards,

  4. coach sir can you tell me how we need to practice daily only shots ? weekly once a game ? or daily practice game ?

  5. Please let me know, where have to be concentrated to the opponet while attending a shot or smash, that is, to his arm, arm rist, finger, racket or shuttle and etc. Pls instruct professionally.

  6. Hi Master Lee,i wanted to ask you how you doing lately?I havent see you post a video for 5 months now.Hope you are fine

  7. hi coach lee
    i am Indonesian and i always try to practice so many training tips in my country,and the others country.not for comparison,just looking for other reference.
    and your video is always inspiring me.
    thanks coach lee!

  8. Hi coach lee, often in a match i open the game with lots of mistakes and silly shots, this then puts in in a bad position for the rest of the match. Do you know how to rectify this?

  9. master i just starting to watch your videos .. where i want to start …

    I am very weak in badminton always failing . I want to improve .. I understand some of my mistakes when am playing while I watch your videos .I want to learn more from you

  10. Great video but by looking at the placement of the shuttle at the same time, doesn't that give the opponent an advantage because they can easily predict the path of the shuttle because of your body language?

  11. Hi Coach Lee,
    Thanks very much for the numerous wonderful videos. I watch the videos religiously and my game has improved a lot. THis video is great because it covers one aspect of the game I have been thinking about lately (the eyes). I have a tangential question to the video but it is still concerned with the movement of the eyes and I hope you would help me with this.

    At exactly what moment in the rally do we observe where the opponents are standing on the court to decide on our reply shot for the best placement ? Should the shot selection be instinctive and second nature to us or is it actually a thought process that goes on in our brain in the short time that the bird is hit by the opponent and the bird reaches us ? Any tips or pointers would be greatly appreciated. Right now, when I play it takes too much time for me to reach the bird, observe where the opponent is standing in the opposite court and place my shot in the most difficult spot for him and my reply shot is mostly predictable.

  12. Master lee..
    I am playing badminton for last 1 year and I recently started watching your clips. I thought I knew things because I trained myself good jump smashes and cross drops and won a club tournament, but your videos are eyeopener for me that there is so much I need to learn before I can even call myself a intermediate player. Thank you very much for these videos. I really appreciate the way you explain each angle of exercise which really leaves no doubt in mind at all. I'll continue to learn and improve with your help. Thanks again for all your effort.
