In this two part series Coach Ruhnow shows an exercise how to enhance your footwork on the Badminton court with the right rhythm. Beginners often run without a specific rhythm towards the center of play or where they think the opponent is playing the new shuttle.
That often does not work neither efficient nor effective. Top players most of the times use a well timed split step and start depending on the time of impact and the anticipated shot of the opponent.
This exercise is a pre-exercise to time that split step and start to an external cue – almost like in the real game. Only thing here for the beginner – the corners are given in the first steps to make it easier for the opponent.
