Re: Hakama for non-yudansha

hi, in the dojo that i'm at women can't where the hakama until they pass there 1st grading which in our dojo is 6th kyu but women can have them as soon as they pass the first grading for modesty as the gi used to be underwear.but the males don't where them till shodan but if you notice the women who where hakama they have their belt showing so we know who is who as in the dojo there is only 2 belts white and black except for the juniors.and you can notice the women beginners more as they haven't got the hakama on
