In the "forcing lefties to be righties" vein: I know that even in the U.S. as recently as a generation or two ago, some children would be punished by their teachers for writing with their left hand. If it is difficult to have good Japanese penmanship left-handed, it seems likely that by the time someone was seriously studying sword, they were already used to using their right hand. So it might not even come up. Plausible?
