In any case it seems strange to me to train for several years without hakama, get to shodan and then have to learn how to take ukemi, walk around and do technique without tripping or injuring yourself. Maybe its an initiation joke? "Hes a black belt now, he thinks hes great. Lets make him wear this stupid skirt!".
I agree totally

that black gown is nothing but trouble

The road is long...
The path is steep...
So hire a guide to show you the shortcuts
