The block jump is also an important footwork technique used to intercept the shuttlecock with a forehand or round-the-head forehand action for a quick point.
The block jump is performed by taking off with both the legs straight in the sir with your hands too in full strtch to block the shuttle and land with the same foot position you started. Here the body position is in defensive mode, so your body should initiate the next movement toward sth shuttle.
This jump is also done sometimes in the sideways also, as in this case, the body is positioned parallel to the net. The important factor to note here is that when jumping to the forehand side, your right foot will lead and while jumping to the backhand side, your left foot will lead, so your foot don’t cross over at any time and remain wide apart throughout the jump.
When you do the block jump to your right side, you usually land with both feet together. But, Whenever you are forced to jump out to your left while playing the round-the-head forehand, your body is less balanced. So, you will be forced to land with your left foot. But remember to put your right foot to the ground as soon as possible!
