Re: Poll: How important is right/left symmetry in your physical aikido practice?

Few people are truly symmetrical. We define right or left handed in american culture. We were taught that 'all swordsmen are right handed', so I never grip the bokken left handed.

I agree that we should Train for symmetry - so why don't we train left handed sword techniques?
