Are your skills up to par when you go out for sushi? Can you really throw back saki and snatch that sashimi like a ninja in a Bruce Lee flick?
Don't wimp out and ask for a fork, get your swag on point! You may never learn to use nun chucks, but at least you can be one with chop sticks. NOTE: The kid's chopsticks with the spring action are NOT a good look at Nobu.
Chopsticks are more to Asian culture than simple dining instruments. They are objects of speculation and legend with 4,000 years of history.
According to a well-known overseas Chinese scientist, Li Zhengdao, 'Chopsticks are an ingenious invention and it is in fact the extension of man's fingers.'
Some research has concluded that more than 30 joints and 50 muscles as well as related nerves are involved in the use of chopsticks - their use helps to exercise the nervous system and increases mental acumen.
