TRUE STORY: I went to a seminar in California three years ago, Saito Sensei was supposed to be there but canceled after 9/11. Anyway, there was a lady from Australia, and as far as I could tell she was wearing nothing under her hakama. How do I know? I worked with her several times. Her Gi top was a little short so there was plenty of skin in the gaps of her hakama when she took ukemi. Definitely no pants to speak of. She may have worn a thong, but did I mention there was a lot of skin showing off her hips? Which brings us to the next series of questions...
Is it women most likely not to wear underwear, or just Australian's?
