Starting is a very important part in the movement of badminton, but it is also the most easily overlooked link. Many golfers don't understand the concept of starting from the beginning: they mistakenly think that striding is starting. In fact, this is not the case. Starting is an acceleration process when receiving the ball in other directions. Only after acceleration can the movement speed of the subsequent footwork be faster. If you want to start faster, you have to introduce the concept of starting small jumps, because this is the process of speeding up when starting.
If there is no start step, see what will happen ? There is no chaos at all! Mess! ! Mess! ! !
So how do you grasp the rhythm of the footwork?
If you give the opponent a high ball, the quality is good, and the flight path of the ball is very Long, so that you have enough time to return to the center, then you have to slow down the speed of the return footwork, save energy, and let you return the last step [the starting step of the next footwork] just close to the opponent hitting the ball In an instant.
If you draw the ball back to the opponent’s baseline with a fast draw, or when the opponent is playing back in front of the net, the ball will fly fast and the time to return is alsoVery short, you have to speed up your reversing footwork, and the last step of reversing you [the starting step of the next footwork] just closes the opponent's hitting moment.
In this way, adjusting the speed of one's footwork with the flying speed of the ball and the insufficient time of one's return is called footwork rhythm.
Some people return to the middle as fast as possible after hitting a high ball. This is completely unnecessary. First of all, this will waste a lot of precious physical energy without knowing it, and secondly, it will cause the footwork to become a flying footwork. Just like you have been playing at a sprint speed of 100M, you can't hold on for long.
How to start small jumps easily and reasonably?
1 The main points of starting a small jump:
When landing, separate your feet and bend your knees. This is a posture that can help your body maintain balance;
Relax the upper body, with the center of gravity between the feet, and the waist slightly bent forward;
You need to push the ground when you jump up and land, but the time of contact with the ground should be short, so that you can move out faster .
2 In the usual practice games, mandatoryTake a small jump at the moment the opponent hits the ball. As long as you practice more, you will slowly master the timing and rhythm of starting the small jump.
3 If you find that starting a small jump has become an obstacle to your play, there are only two possibilities: one is that you are not proficient in your movements, and the other is that the timing of your jump is wrong, or it’s too early. It's not too late.
4 Usually, many masters will emphasize: We must find a way to disrupt the opponent's rhythm. Many people do not understand what this means. In fact, this is the use of fake movements or momentary pauses of the wrist to disrupt the opponent's rhythm of starting small jumps.
For example, delay the hitting time a little bit, let the opponent jump earlier, and have to restart a second time. This is actually disrupting the opponent's rhythm.
