does it ever get to the point where you get as comfortable with your non-dominant hand as you are wiht your dominant hand?

I think yes, but I'm not to that point yet. I believe everything can be achieve... and if some people can become ambitextrous by training for it, why not?

There was another post earlier on that talked about a theory that learning moves with your off hand before your main hand, lends to proficiency in your main hand without ever practicing with it. Its an interesting theory and everytime I'm learning something new, I forget about it completely. LOL

haha, I've heard several people say that this is how they learned and that it worked better, but I'm with you, when I go to learn something new I forget about this theory.

Try doubling your practice time on your off hand.

I dunno if this works for anyone else but I learna trick with my dominant hand and then watch very closely exactly what each part of my body is doing before trying it in the weak hand. For example, I learnt inner arm rolls on the weak hand by forcing it to copy the shape my dominant hand was making.


Don't know if that makes sense

It's actually a magical hand used to summon unicorns!


But no, it's just what I call the non-dominant hand, I suppose... =D

haha I used to be an SCA fencer, so I use weapons fighting terms. Off hand is the hand that is weaker.

It's also what us D&D nerds call your weaker hand as well. All the -2 modifiers for doing things with your "off hand".
