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!
