Re: Gi pants leg and sleeve

We would like to set standards for gi pants leg and sleeve lengths at our Aikido dojo. I can find those for Judo, but none for Aikido. Also hakama clearances from floor would be appreciated. Please feel free to contribute! why?

Do you have a problem with people coming in wearing cut-offs or something?

You do know why those lengths are mandated in judo, right? It's for competitive advantage control, to level the playing field, etc. Unless you'r doing something unusual for an aikido school (no-Tomiki competitions, I get it) what's the reason?

I find it interesting that the kanji character for kuzushi illustrates a mountain falling on a house.
