    That's cool, this world needs more left handed support. Two of my good friends (and myself as well) are left handed. I will use the wiimote and become Link, by channeling our left handed power.

    That's the most retarded thing I've ever said.

    Aren't most swordsmen left-handed as well?

    But it's cool how left-handers can use the wii just as roght-handers would.

    Quick answer: No

    Longer Answer: I'll put it this way, the relative ratio for right:left handed is I believe 90/10, this then means that any swordsman has a 90% chance of being right handed. There aren't any genes that make you a swordsman and so they couldn't be tied to the gene for left handedness. I'm a swordsman and at my club we have 2 people who are left handed, the rest are right so out of ~15 people 2 are lefties and 13 are righties.

    Out of curiosity where did you pull that fact from?

    I just heard that back in the day many swordsmen used their left-hand as the dominant one.

    I don't remember Mario being left handed, but then again I don't think I've seen him use either.

    Left-handed swordsmen would have had the advantage of surprise, but there weren't many of them. In fact very few of them were lefties due to discrimination.
