In this video we’re going to talk about
the doubles defense out in the forehand side. This is a really advanced
stroke if you want to learn the basic techniques about the double defense
please check out our other video we made about that one you can find it in the
description. So we have a stroke now we have a smash coming towards your
forehand side instead of switching to the forehand we need to do the same
basic techniques but we need to do it out in the side still hitting the
shuttle in the backhand. First thing that we want to focus on is that we need to
move our body slightly to the right so we are in a better position of doing the
defense. Next thing we want to do now is that we
want to we want to take our elbow and getting in far out to the right so we
are still able to do the rotation in the forearm so when we are ready for the
smash we go out like this with the elbow all the way out to the side so we still
can generate all the power from the rotation of the forearm. Next thing we wanna focus on is how we
hit the shuttle how we generate all that power with the elbow all the way out to
the side. What we’re gonna do now when we are standing in this position with the
elbow all the way out here we are going to rotate the forearm and use the finger
power to generate all the power for the defense. What is really important in this
stroke is that you use your fingers to generate the power combined with the
forearm rotation. Our grip just before we hit the shuttle it is a bevel grip
slightly on the edge of the racket and actually when we are hitting the shuttle
we rotate the grip in our fingers while we push on the grip so it looks like
this. In some cases when people smash
really really hard all the way out here we don’t have that much time to go all
the way out and generate the power like this so a little extra trick for you
guys is that we can actually move our right leg back to give ourselves more
time to do the to do the defense it looks like this. Thanks a lot for
watching this video I really hope that you learned a lot and you can now try to
practice in this cool shot on your own if you have any questions at all please
leave them below and we will answer them as soon as possible. Thanks for watching 😉
