Sensei told me hakama is to differentiate between those who can take ukemi and those who can't. When he calls on someone he looks for a hakama, that's all. And that starts at 3rd kyu (it's a hefty 3rd kyu, fyi).
Does that mean that in order to attain 3rd kyu, a person has to have a certain level of ability in ukemi at your dojo?
