The one in front is the one you will use the most to intercept

If you are right handed, try writing with your left hand - the DRASTIC difference is THAT drastic as to this question.

Such people are "wired" differently.

The thing is to seek out what ever edge that kind of thing results in.

And there are other kinds of "handedness" or "dominance."

Again, BL's JKD had been designed by him; for him.

And though he had obviously emphasized different aspects of the same basic framework with each student towards maximizing each their particular strengths, obviously he had never encountered one who had that kind of difference in "handedness."

It's an interesting "problem."
