Re: hakama use

As others have surely said - depends on the dojo. I've trained at one dojo where everyone at gokyu or higher wore hakama and coloured belts during regular training, but wore white belts unless shodan or higher when training at any other dojo or seminar.
Every other dojo I've visited or been a member, the custom was mudansha no hakama, yudansha wear hakama.
