I am tired of seeing people with their gi pants dragging the ground. For me it is appearance, for our sensei it is safety. Likewise I don't like seeing hakamas dragging the ground, nor do I like seeing gi pants hanging below the hakama (it is visual distraction). Sensei asked that I write a memo to to the group. Therefore I would like to set standards - judo has them, why don't we? Input would be appreciated.
Ok , you made a point about distractions caused by gi showing below hakama.Just tell your guys to cut a bit off the length of the pants, gi sleeves and either sew the kit themselves or go to an alteration shop. its not rocket science. joe.
