WHEN ROBERT BADEN-POWELL entered the capital city of the Ashanti people in 1890 he was met by one of the Chiefs who came to him holding out his left hand. Baden Powell held out his right in return but the Chief said: "No, in my country the bravest of the brave shake with the left hand." This meant that they had to drop their shields so they had no protection. And that ́s why he started to use the "left handshake" within the world-wide family of Scouts.
