Yes, I am sure that being a lefty helps fencers tremendously, especially in foil. Your arm litterally gets in the way a right handed attack, and if they miss your arm, they have a much better chance of missing you completely since their angle is off and their blade is bent backwards. If you aren't used to it, this gets very, very annoying.

When training in a style, one have to go with what they are instructed to do and not necessarily do what they feel is comfortable. Until a solid foundation is established in a style, one have to just do what the teacher and style is teaching them to do. Without that solid foundation in that style, they'll just be missing subtle details that mean life and death in actual fight or wasting energy doing unneccessary movements that could be critical to them getting killed.

Well in my opinion
if tradition dictates the use of anything really in a particular way why question it?
and when it comes to japanese sword play there history of skill with blades in mind i would'nt want to try anything diffrent at all
