I've read in another forum the tale of a guy surviving a motorbike accident because the parachute effect of his hakama... seriously, i swear.
But did he fly off the bike because of the same reason??

Now my hakama and me have a love hate relationship depending on the week, but it definitely gives you a new feel at times and if you actually take the time to tie it tight it feels really good and together. My dojo lets you get a hakama after you pass your first test and prove you can take ukemi well enough though so I can't comment on the big egos, but I also don't test often.
