What I meant is that if our footwork, taisabaki, ukemi (and concentration) are adequate, the hakama wonīt get in the way. However if anyone is having constant hakama related incidents (tripping, getting tangled with partners, limited mobility, etc.) I donīt think is because of the hakama or the ukes. To me itīs a sign that the practitioner should/must improve in this areas, specially footwork, IMHO.

Thanks for the clarification!
