Basic Badminton Footwork to Prevent Knee InjuriesTags: Footwork Beginner Xiao Jie Complete Badminton Training
Our beginner trainee's footwork has fundamental problems: 1) he puts too much weight on his finishing step, thus his momentum is too far ahead and he is slow to recover and return to ready position 2) his stopping stance is less than 90 degrees and puts a lot of weight on his knees, which could result in injury over time. To remedy our trainee's slow and injury-prone footwork, Coach Xiao Jie suggests that he kick out his calf at the last step so that the angle behind his knee is greater than 90 degrees. Also, he should land on his heel with his toes pointing outwards. This helps with his balance and speeds up his return to base position.
