No matter how much you work on both hands you will still end up using your backhand in the heat of the moment -- 1.) coz it's more natural. 2.) You don't lose a split-second switching from the other hand. 3.) If you know your footwork, you will instinctively set up for a backhand and if you switch hands you will end up in an awkward position -- of course, it has sometimes helped to confuse opponents (no one will honestly think you could get a shot with such an awkward position).

    Compared with being ambidextrous in badminton and having a very good backhand, I'd choose the backhand -- I've developed my backhand to a point that I can now do backhand smashes and drops and in my experience I've earned more points with the backhand than the ambidextrous alternative.
    I agree. But it's still useful, say, if your left arm breaks, is sprained, fractured, etc.

    As to lefties themselves, they're scientifically proven to live about two years less than the rest of us. My hypothesis as to why: all the ink they've absorbed from years of dragging their palm after their pen builds up in their body, and eventually the toxins are just too much for the immune system
    As a whole lefties live shorter lives because there's a higher death rate amongst left-handed machine operators and other menial laborers cause the machinery and equipment is designed for righties..

    I agree.. I'd also choose the backhand, because being ambidextrous with your arms means being ambidextrous with your legs too and one set of footwork's complicated enough .

    You should probably think twice about training your right hand. I read somewhere that it can cause oxygen deprivation in your brain or something. But don't take my word for it, as I'm just repeating what it said in this essay at http://www.linkshaender-beratung.de/...bidextrous.htm. It says that " Ambidexterity is therefore neither a goal to aspire to.......it is the first and foremost the mark of brain damage."

    I have tried to train my left-hand, and have gotten quite well with it, being able to write and do everyday tasks. But i found out that whenever I used my left to write, my head would start to hurt.

    Right handed, of course...
    but again, isn't obvious that the majority of human being being born are right handed?

    i'm right handed but i know someone who's left handed but plays very well with their right hand! if i played with my left hand, i'm pretty sure i'll make horrible shots every time!
