Training kendo with left hand and left foot in the front.

by Hieu
(HCM city. Viet Nam)

I’ve learnt kendo for several months and I’m a left-hander. I found it more comfortable with left hand front at the grip, and do foot works with left foot in the front as well. Is that ok to continue training kendo that way? Is it forbidden?

Thank you.

Answer: Thank you for your question. That would be no. Please read “Why is the left hand more dominant in kendo???” at Can I be left handed and still study kendo?.
