It's true and here's why. Beginners will, very incorrectly, use their arms for shooting power instead of transferring and using their body weight, and this is why they have a poor shot. I've found that this is a lot easier to correct in people than those who have hands of stone (commong for right handed people shooting RH), but then again, that's just me from maybe 30 to 40 cases in my own experience.
