John Ramsay answered this to me : if you train your off hand you lose time you could have practice with your leading hand. If your leading hand gets smashed and you must use your off, youre finished as you already lost using your stronger hand, your off hand is not gonna do better, and probably will do worse. And of course in two handed this does not have much bearing.
