An Introduction to the Traditional Handshake


The traditional greeting as we know it today comes from the time when people first used swords for battle


People would carry their swords on their left arm and would carry a scabbard on their left side, which they would slip into when they had to use their weapon.


Eventually, this became a normal greeting, since it was easy for them to draw their weapon with their right. The first known shaking of the hand is recorded in a Persian tale of the seventh century BC. In this story, a king of Persia, Xerxes, is about to conquer the Greeks. One of his trusted advisors, Megabyzos, asks Xerxes not to destroy the Greeks, and then he shakes hands with Xerxes.


In modern history, this greeting is still common. Most people shake hands with another person, when they meet, since shaking hands symbolize friendship. It's a simple gesture, but it's also quite touching. The reason why many people like to shake hands is because it means "hello". If you're holding a nice-looking object, like a piece of jewelry, a flower or a coin, then you can just lean back and relax with your companion, and do a little shake.


Some countries, such as Japan and the U.S., do not hold this kind of greeting. Instead, they do a hand sign known as "honk". There are a lot of people who are very proud to do this handshake, and they make sure that everyone knows that they are doing this. Some people also think that this greeting is a way to tell other people what to do, since shaking hands is done by giving a signal.


For example, when a person says, "I'll be there"I'll see you there", the other person should do the same. That's why shaking hands can be considered as an etiquette. Of course, it will depend on the person and their culture.


In Japan, shaking hands is often used as a sign of friendship between two people


This is also referred to as "Kaisai" and is often used for business meetings and other business contacts. Some people even hold it when they want to say their goodbyes.



A lot of people hold this sign while traveling in order to greet someone they met on a plane, especially the flight attendant, since they will be shaking hands with the flight attendants. It's a simple gesture, but it's also one of the oldest forms of greeting. It's the best way to tell someone to meet you on future flights and get to know one another better.


You can find pictures of people shaking hands on the internet, but you have to be careful when you take these pictures. It will be difficult for you to read the sign correctly, and you might have to explain things differently in your photos. A good rule of thumb is to try to take as many pictures as possible before giving the shaking hand. This way, you can make sure that you are giving the shaking hand the right sign. After all, the point is to make the sign as clear as possible.


Shaking hands can be done by using both hands. If you have just met a person, you can do a traditional shaking hand. However, if you are already acquainted with a person and you would like to give him/her a traditional handshake, the traditional shaking hand is done with only one hand.


It is recommended to start with your left hand. You should touch the palm of the other person's hand, while letting the other person know that you are shaking hands. This is a sign of friendship. If you have never shaken hands, do not worry about it; it will be easy to do.


The shaking hand is a very popular greeting among the Japanese. Although it may not be traditional in some places, some people still use it when they want to give a formal greeting. Although some countries don't hold this form of greeting, it has been adopted as a tradition in most countries. For example, in Japan, you might see the person's fingers interlocking when they shake hands.


This greeting is also a way for people who want to give compliments to another person, and they will do a handshake to show their appreciation. When the other person knows you appreciate their gesture, they will give a more formal shake. This is a good way to thank them.
