The revolutionary Knight Trainer allows players to learn, improve and perfect badminton skills far faster than in the past, and frees coaches to concentrate on teaching and coaching. Dramatically accelerate the beginner's learning curve for all ages with the Knight Trainer. Simulate any shot consistently and repeatedly, allowing beginners to concentrate on coordination and technique with the shuttle arriving in the same spot, shot after shot.Coaches don't have to double as shot feeders, but can do what is most important - observe their students, coach and teach.
