Re: Wearing of Hakama at Seminars

I really don't understand why so many people considers hakama to be some sort of a status symbol for yudansha? During O-sensei time everyone were required to wear one...

BTW I also train in the dojo where mudansha (2nd kyu and higher) are allowed to wear a hakama. If I'd go to "all styles welcome" seminar, then I don't see a reason why not to wear a hakama. But If I would go to some "yudansha only" dojo, then I wouldn't wear it.....
