Wearing a hakama (usually in our dojo after grading 4th kyu, and at seminars after grading 2nd kyu) means you can take care of yourself during a technique.
Anyone, any thoughts on that?
I always believed tori's mission was to take care of uke, regardeless of rank or clothes they're wearing.

On topic:

I think there is some people who show too much attachment to transient things like grades, hakama wearing , keikogi fabric/label/colour... however, if these things make them happier, i'm happy too.
