training in street clothes
All the discussions on wearing hakama made me think - how often do you train in street clothes? For me, putting on the uniform is part of the whole experience and I am sure affects my training. If I train without a hakama, I feel different. And very, very occasionally I have trained in a tracksuit - very strange!
Has anyone tried training in normal street clothes (not counting when you are a beginner), and did you see any difference in your ability?
I felt incredibly un-coordinated, and fragile!
