I knew you'd say that.
Deal is: Master says I'm right. Even then, his experience is limited here as his Master has only introduced Jhook Do basics to our Black Belt curriculum.
Other students tend to assume that since you would defend with a righthanded high block with one hand (fist to the left), and with our single short stick blocks, the same would be true (point of stick to the left)...then the assumption would be that the tip of the sword would be to the left for a "high block" and to the right would be a reverse high block, just like if the short stick was in the right hand but you were defending the other side.
Master says it's different because you are using two hands on the weapon and to cross the hands unnaturally would be clumsy for fighting.
For personal reasons as well, I want to know. Got a higher Dan correcting me all the time that is emphatic about his own knowledge...and loves a good debate even if there isn't one. Just want to make sure I am correct on my own.
