They severed the nerves in the left hand and forced them to use the right. Worked pretty well, but Taiwan was forced to abandon the technique to be allowed to lobby the WHO for membership.

Actually there was a kid (well, an elderly man now, I suppose) in my primary school class who used to have a deformed left hand from being smashed on the knuckles repeatedly with the blackboard rubber for being left-handed.
