    Genomically speaking, there is the dominant Right handed Gene, and the 'whatever the ****' gene.

    Which means that if you've got that one, you could be anything on a continuum between hard right, ambodambo and hard left. With leanings of course.

    I'm equally un-coordinated in both hands.

    I can write the same with both hands (poorly) yet my right foot is highly un-coordinated compared to my left. So I'm probably left handed.

    Being southpaw counts for nothing when you first start, is amazing at the intermediate level then counts for little at the advanced level. I've pretty much won 2 of my fights just by being left handed.

    My experience as a lefty is mixed. People often dont know how to hold pads during training for lefty, so that part is not so cool. However, in sparring most people dont know how to deal with us. Right hooks get peopel off gaurd..left kick is the lover shot.. and outside leg kicks are fun.
