    That seems to be very true, different coaches will all have their own take on particular techniques and mechanics. There's also the "劈杀" and a dozen other techniques that I'm sure each have their own varieties. This is one of the interesting (though sometimes frustrating) things I've found about badminton as a beginner coming from tennis, where the greater force of impact can sometimes limit the number of shots that are structurally viable.

    I think you are describing the 過渡球 but not using the English very well LOL.

    From what I understand from my Cantonese (and my kid is also training badminton using Cantonese), the 過渡球 is a rear court shot (either forehand and backhand) where the shuttle has gone past you.

    Thank you, hence I beg to be corrected (*_*), I omitted to say it was a rear court shot,
    just past 6 am or so in the U.K. and bleary eyed, so excusable.

    Yes, this "劈杀" is a good example of the variations of a technique, I should say it clearly describes the technique used to hit the shuttle.

    How about shots performed in the front/mid court? Could it be also considered 過渡球.
