Lynn, I have heard this argument so often, but nobody has ever been able to explain to me what this "modesty" business is all about. Is modesty something that only concerns women? Would you mind explaining?

Sonja, this argument relies on the fact that keikogi was used (and maube still used) as underear. From what i've read, women could use hakama earlier than men, because this ones could be distracted by the circunstane of practicing with women "half naked".

not that i agree of course =P. but thats what i've heard ^^
