Top Basic Badminton Skills You Should LearnJacob
The key to mastering the game of badminton is to strengthen the basics of the game.
How well you can improve your badminton skills depends on how familiar you are with the basic skills. Have you ever wondered why badminton is so popular in Asia and Europe, but not in the United States and Australia? Or why are the first-class players from Asia and Europe?
Let me share my thoughts with you.
In Asia, badminton is a game where families (especially parents) take their children to the badminton courts on the weekends. Dad will teach his children the basic skills in badminton. From a young age, the children would have learned the basic techniques. When they grow up, they will find their group of friends to play badminton. With a strong badminton background, these children explore more badminton skills and begin to develop new advanced techniques. Badminton is not just a national sport for some Asian countries; It is also an inherited culture where families and friends maintain relationships.
My point here is that you only need to learn basic badminton skills at first. Once you have mastered these basics, you will not need to learn advanced techniques. You will naturally develop them! Execute strong blows, perform quality tricks or dive to defend a blow … You will find badminton exciting when you can perform these techniques! Learn the correct basics in badminton and practice them. When you possess strong basic skills, you will eventually develop advanced techniques on your own.
The most important basic badminton skills you should learn are:
Gripping technique: The correct way to grip a badminton racket allows you to transfer more power to your badminton shots.
Basic badminton shot (full arm swing): When you have mastered the basic badminton swing movement, you can use it to perform a badminton clearance, throw and crush.
Footwork: Badminton is a game of speed. Effective and organized footwork plays an important role by allowing you to move faster around the badminton court. It is simple! Just learn, practice and master these 3 basic concepts and you will find yourself exploring new advanced techniques for yourself.
Some examples of advanced badminton techniques are:
1. Quick attacks (maximum wrist action)
2. Clear attack
3. Net kill
However, I recommend that you master the basics before trying these new skills. Badminton basics are the most important techniques in the game and the key to mastering the game is to master the basics first. Learn these skills and you’re on your way to improve game performance!
