Steward "Tony"’s Answer

As a handball, raquetball player and martial artist most of my life, my world turned upside down when an injury in the Marines affected my left hand making it a challange in a variety of sports, except running. I've run 2 marathons, a bunch of mini's and hundreds of 5K and 10Ks' which shows that I dont quit. Running did not require my left hand.

But on the courts which needed use of both arms, legs and especially hands, playing handball, raquetball as well as training in martial arts, my weakest point was my left hand, which could not perform like my right hand. How do I cover aggressive shots to my left court side when striking a ball going 90MPH off a wall, which hurt like "well you could imagine"?

"A Backhand" alone or with a raquet could help, but it was difficult to do, yet it was a remarkable solution if I could take out some time and nudge it into my thoughts, my heart and my game. My weakness helped me think "alternative". Days, to months, months to years of just playing every corner, that my right hand was capable of, so my back hand could same.

I was eventually called Tony Backhand on Bronx Courts as I was amazing people with the accuracy and speed at which my back-hand shots could perform. From any point on the court, hitting kill shots, leaving oppoants in disbelief.

Your weakness my young friend, can be developed into a strength with time, practice and patience. You just need to practice, BTW: I got so good with my back hand, my left also got better in time and the pain from hitting the balls no longer stung.

Many will tell you that practice makes perfect. That statement is not actually correct.
Practice make you practiced, only perfect practice makes perfect. Hope this helps.

Once you have turned your weakness into strength, you can help others with the same issues and that will totally elevate you transformation from weakness to strength. Good luck to you.
