Hi Alois , How much should I bend on knees while playing, do i need to keep my back straight all the time?

Hi Swaraj,

You should bend your knees to a level where you can move fast and efficiently.  This means bending them to around 120 degrees.  You should keep your back relatively straight but you can hunch forward a little to get better balance, a bit like a downhill skier.
