    I am a Left handed but I play right hand... But I think I'm already close to reaching my full potential.... whats the difference if you were trained with your opposite hand rather than your normal/natural hand?

    I think if one hand is stronger than the other, it has an advantage if you play with it. But of course it is very small, and many players lift weights with only the hand they play with which would balance it out and is very helpful.

    He said he is righthanded, but he discovered one day when he was young that he could bounce the ball so much better with his left hand. That's how he started to play with his left hand.

    this is totally incorrect as many people whom i know use their right hand in everything, yet while playing table tennis they use their left hand, it is actually possible and makes sense.plus, me too i am a right handed who uses left while playing and i am succeeding and getting better everyday. so reaching the full potential is possible.

    maybe that was a secret masterplan by an evil coach genius?

    That's an interesting topic.
    Yes, playing left hand gives you an advantage, so it makes sense. But how did you manage to do that? Cause I think it's a lot harder to start learning to play with the "other" hand? Did you do that intentionally? How old were you when you started training?

    p.s. that's an ancient topic by the way

    It's not that uncommon I think. I know some darts players that use their non-dominant hand to play.

    Cross handedness is much common than You might think, and often they are taught by society.

    In muslim country, we are taught to eat with right hand and clean ourselves with left hand.

    In fact, there are many left handed people, who is better to use their right hand on certain stuff.
    Funny, I've heard the same thing about Jun Mizutani. I wonder if its true for both, for one, or just one of those stories that spreads.
