How to Do a Smash Shot | Badminton Lessons


Now, I like to say a couple of words about
the overhead smash. As the name suggests it’s a high power shot
in which you smash the shuttle downwards and at a very high rate of speed, resembles very
much the overhead drop and after hitting from a high point and you are hitting it downward
very hard. The motion is similar to an overhead clearance,
similar to an overhead drop in that you turn your shoulder’s first, you start the rotation
with the elbow and you make contact when the shuttle is in front of you or directly overhead
and then you bring it downward very rapidly. So, lets take a look at Shibing hit some overhead
smashes. As you notice Shibing is hitting with a lot
of power and he is hitting downwards. Just an interesting thing about the smash,
the smash in badminton will go very fast. At the professional level smashes have been
timed as much as 206 miles/hour. And that’s basically how you do an overhead
smash.
