Why are chopsticks hard to use?

Have you ever wondered why some of us find using chopsticks difficult? Unlike western tableware, chopsticks require the use of 80-odd joints and more than 50 muscles in the shoulder, arm, hand and fingers. Chopsticks also require the use of lots of cranial nerves and builds excellent eye-hand coordination. So don't be too hard on yourself. Unless you grew up using chopsticks, learning to use chopsticks will take a little practice!

At EverythingChopsticks.com we carry several learning chopsticks and training chopsticks to assist in building chopsticks dexterity.
