My name is Dominic and I am from Malaysia. I love badminton and I have been a badminton coach for over 12 years.
Mental training is of equal importance if not more than strategy, physical, skill or tactical training.
I had a bit of mental training knowledge when I was assisting Frederick Tan, a sports psycologist with the Malaysia badminton team in 2009. It was a 4-days mental training course for the national singles team including Lee Chong Wei and another 4 days for the national doubles team.
Since then I have applied some of the techniques in mental training for my younger players though I did modified them a bit due to their younger ages, the results were overwhelming. I am still in touch with Fred after all these years and I am never tired of expanding my knowledge on mental training!
