Ambidexterity was the state of being equally adept in the use of both left and right appendages in humanoid species. The clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic were trained to be able to wield their issued blasters ambidextrously. All members of the Yevetha species were ambidextrous, and Ruurians were identically proficient with their two largest appendages.
Jedi Master Vodo-Siosk Baas was able to wield his staff ambidextrously. Other notable examples in the Jedi Order included Weapon Masters Thon and Anoon Bondara, Battlemaster Kyle Katarn, Quinlan Vos, Mace Windu, Depa Billaba, and Aayla Secura. Dark side individuals also inherited this skill, such as Dark Jedi Xanatos, Aurra Sing, Tol Skorr, and Sora Bulq; Sith Lords Exar Kun, Scourge, Darth Maul, Darth Tyranus, Savage Opress, Sith Tyro Vestara Khai, and Dark Lady of the Sith, Lumiya.[source?]
