i enjoy

Playing against my son and daughter! I’m working hard every day to keep up with my kids, who just absorb everything and grow so fast. I also really enjoy how I can feel my kids’ growth through badminton.

Strong points

“Quick, dynamic plays that make use of my speed on the wheelchair. I’m also refining my techniques, making them more precise and detailed, for synergy across my whole play.”
