Footwork for badminton jumpsmash-1 step block jump

Wonder how the pros can get to execute the smash so fast, it's all in the footwork...

Lee Chong Wei 's footwork for jumpsmash.

Split step, one big step backwards (with racquet leg), load up on racquet leg, push off backwards.

As he's falling to the ground, he can hook the shuttle downwards with his body weight using gravity to transfer the potential energy to accelerate the shuttlecock.

Similarly Lee Yong Dae here performed a similar footwork. He just takes one big step backwards with the racquet leg, load up and jump backwards.


This jump is necessary as it takes longer time to take 2 steps to reach the midcourt in a normal footwork.
