The pace is wrong, and everything is in vain! Five basic steps of disassembling badminton learning

Most amateur badminton lovers don’t have a good foundation, not only their skills are not perfect, but many people can’t even distinguish the most basic steps clearly, let alone skillfully use them. Therefore, on the court, we often meet golfers who are "confused and tired into dogs". If we want to improve this situation, we must learn from the most basic pace. Today, we are going to disassemble five basic steps that are common in learning:Starting step, merging step, crossing step, stepping step and jumping step..

Strictly speaking, the starting step is not a step, but a nerve reaction. For example, when you are startled by surprise, your nerves suddenly tighten and your body will contract immediately. The starting step is the reaction of nervous tension and body contraction after seeing the opponent’s return ball, which is to better prepare for the next move. It is worth noting that:The starting step is only available when you are paying attention and actively moving your body.If you relax and don’t care about the return of the ball, there is no such subconscious action.

The function of the starting step: tighten the body and prepare for the movement; At the same time, it can also lower the center of gravity and change the direction.

Most of the forms of starting steps are legs apart, jumping in place, etc., but no matter which form is used to remind the body to enter the moving state, from the preparatory action to the moving state, so we see that in professional competitions, many players jump in front of almost every step and constantly use the starting step. As shown below:

Step by step can be said to be the most commonly used moving gait, which can be interpreted literally as: the step in which the hind feet are close to the front feet. Take the right-handed racket as an example, and the step is to move the left foot together with the right foot. When the left foot touches the ground, the right foot continues to move forward, and the left foot comes together again, as shown in the following figure:

Parallel internet access

Step back

It can be seen that whether surfing the Internet or going backwards, you can choose to step in parallel. In the process of moving, the knee slightly bends to slightly lower the center of gravity, which can make the body more stable and is also conducive to the final shot; At the same time, stand on tiptoe and touch the ground to speed up the movement.

The above step is that the hind feet are close to the front feet, and the front feet drive the hind feet to move; The cross step is the cross movement of feet, just like our daily running, but it is not easy to master the cross step because of the uncertain moving direction on the field, and novices may trip if they don’t pay attention.

Cross steps can be divided into front cross and back cross. Generally speaking, many people are willing to adopt the way of back cross, which is convenient for the back foot to push the ground and the front foot to have more opportunities to change direction when moving. As shown below:

Anterior crossing

Posterior cross

It can be seen that the movement of the right foot is limited by the left leg and it is not easy to change direction at the front crossing; Then the right foot is more likely to change direction when crossing; At the same time, the left foot will push harder and move faster when crossing back. But as I said before, the back cross is easy to trip, so you should master it before using it.

By comparing the parallel step with the cross step, we can find that the cross step moves faster, while the parallel step moves more frequently. On the whole, the two steps perform well on the court and can be used in combination. In addition, according to the editor’s observation, long-legged athletes prefer cross steps, while ordinary athletes use parallel steps more.

Pedal stride is mainly used when hitting the ball on the internet. Whether it is step by step or cross step, the last step of surfing the internet will be pedal stride, which can not only speed up the speed to grab the hitting point, but also make the body land more stably, which has the stability of hitting the ball with the hand. Therefore, the importance of stepping is self-evident.

Literally, stepping is to step forward with the front foot and the back foot on the ground. As shown in the figure below, after the crossing step, there is a pedaling step to surf the Internet:

This seemingly simple stride is not easy to learn. You should master the following three core elements:

1、Right foot (stride foot). When landing, the right foot should land with the heel first, and the toes should face the direction of the ball and outward. The advantage of doing this is to make the right foot land more stable, thus making the whole body more stable. As shown in the figure below:

2、Left foot (foot pedal). The power of the left foot is the power source of the right foot stride. The greater the power of the left foot, the greater the stride distance, which is why the stride will be combined with the cross step. Because of the long stride distance, after the right foot strides, the left foot will slide forward with the body, and the inside of the left foot will slide on the ground by friction. As shown below:

3. Knees. Many golfers say that playing ball hurts our knees. In fact, our exercise is within the range of our body’s tolerance. The reason for the injury is that our movements are not standard and our own maintenance is not enough. When stepping forward, the legs that stride forward bear a huge impact, and the pressure on the knees is very great, so we should pay attention to one thing:The angle between thigh and calf must be greater than 90 degrees.That is, the knees do not exceed the toes.

If the included angle is less than 90 degrees, the impact on the knee will be greatly increased, which is very harmful to cruciate ligament and soft tissue. Professional athletes rarely have this way of catching the ball. For amateurs, we should pay more attention to this in order to reduce injuries.

In addition to stepping in front of the net, there is also a stepping in the backcourt. The action is the same as that in front of the net, but the direction is different, as shown in the following figure:

The simple understanding of the jump step is the take-off step, which has two forms:Take off in front of the net to save the ball, take off in the back court to hit the ball.

When you save the ball in front of the net, because the time is short and the opportunity is rare, you must be fast, lean forward and jump forward. The main action is to jump forward. When the body leans forward, the center of gravity is all on the right foot, and the right foot is used to jump forward, as shown in the following figure:

The advantage of jumping is that it is fast, and you can hit the ball in only one step. No matter how fast it is, it is not so fast. This is the advantage of jumping. The same is true for jumping shots in the backcourt, which can quickly catch the right hitting point, whether it is killing the ball or dropping the ball, it will give the opponent a certain threat.

Jumping backward to hit the ball is more common among male athletes. Using the strength of the arm to hit the ball, the body does not turn, so that the speed of hitting the ball is fast and the hitting point is higher. If you move to the position and then hit the ball, the hitting point is already very low and there is no lethality. Jumping backward requires certain leg strength and skills, which is an advanced skill for amateurs. As shown in the figure below:

These are the five basic steps commonly used. Except for jumping, starting step, merging step, crossing step and pedaling step are the steps that badminton lovers must master. Only by learning these basic steps and then mastering the combination of various steps can they move in an orderly way on the court and avoid the embarrassing situation of "being walked into a dog by the opponent".
