    Are you right handed, left handed, or both?

    Are you right handed, left handed, or somewhere in-between?

    I was a competitive swimmer for 7 years. Coach made me practice breathing on both sides, and I got used to swimming ambidextrous.

    On a bicycle I try to ride ambidextrous. I can coast over rough ground with either foot forward, but still feel better starting a wheelie with the right leg.

    I do everything else right handed.

    I've always been right handed. I think 90% of the population is.

    Right hand mostly but it depends on the activity, some times requires both hands.

    I'm mostly left handed, but throw a fribee righty. Right handed scissors, but lefty with a knife. Lefty rifle and shotgun, but righty at competitive pistol. Never paid attention to foot placement on the bike, maybe I'll check it out next ride.

    I've done some research. (research consisted of reading mine and Brisk Eddie's posts)

    My research has led me to the conclusion that it is quite normal to throw a frisbee "other-handed".

    Ambidextrous. In my line of work(gaming) it pays(literally) to be.

    I'm pretty sure we had a poll like this not too awfully long ago. I write, kick, hit, and throw lefty (Goofy foot). I eat right handed, though.

    I've been told I'm "Semi Ambidextrous". A physical therapist said it was probably a result of breaking my right arm as a kid and adult.
    And left hand riding motorcycles in my 20s.

    I use to play ping pong left or right. I started right and got so good that, I started playing left handed to give lesser players a chance. In the end I got damned good with the left as well. I used to switch up during a match and confuse people, when I had a real beef with the opposing player. Although I tried not to abuse my new found super power.

    Are you right handed, left handed, or both?

    I'm right handed but left eye dominant which means I shoot lefty. I have a bottom ejecting Ithaca so I don't get shells thrown in my face. Right handed for everything else.

    I write with my left except on chalkboards and things like foggy windows I use my right hand. I eat left mostly but will eat with my right too and can use chop sticks with both. I throw right, golf, play hockey, bat right. I surf/skate/snowboard regular but can ride goofy fairly well. My right arm/hand is stronger but I have more control with my left.
