I'm right handed, but I don't think my feet have a preference.

Yes? You could be naturally right handed and if you actively pursued dominating with your left foot from a young age you could technically be right handed and left footed.

It's not like you have to be destined to be right or left handed from birth.

If some dude tied a kids right hand behind his back from the time he was born, that kid would be technically left handed.

If you mean where a kid naturally has a preference to dominate with his right hand, but has the tendency to dominate with his left foot, without any outside force dictating this behavior.. that's got to be incredibly rare

Go put a bball, soccer ball or whatever on the ground and kick it as hard you can with both feet, you should quickly find out which foot you prefer.

To answer OP

Left handed people have a greater tendency to be right footed than being left footed, right handed people on the other hand () are most often right footed.

Last time I kicked something was a ball in 7th grade gym class.

I am right handed and left footed. I wrote with my left hand till I was 8 and played soccer as well which developed me as left handed and footed, but when I was 8 my teachers forced me to become right handed for writing, and now I can't write with my left anymore (basically right handed)

Yep. That's exactly what I am. Right handed but I shred fools on the pitch with my left foot.

if you're ambidextrous, wouldn't you prefer one side for some things and the other side for other things?


and wouldn't that carry over to the feet as well?


i'm somewhat ambidextrous and this is the case for me, anyway. self-training only expands the range, too, as additional neural networks get strengthened on the limb you're working on.

I am right handed and left footed. I think it helps a lot in all sports, or seems to, as I dominate everything but swimming.
