Considering Paulas's question, I myself do not look at the matter in terms of advantages and disadvantages.
Hello Peter,

as far as the rest of your reply, it makes perfect sense to me. I think regardless of what one is wearing or using during training, it is always a matter of personal awareness and conscientious training to keep things as safe as possible for those involved.

The reason I used the advantage/disadvantage approach had to do with the impressions I got from the words - "it seems that the danger to us (the type of training we do in Aikido) outweighs whatever the reasons are that we wear hakama" - from Paula's original post.

Arigato Gozaimashita.
