I very nearly added a bit about that. The one and only time that I have had the pleasure of visiting a Shodokan dojo, was in Tokyo about 6 years back.

When I went to watch, I can see how a hakama could cause problems in the knife weiding randori

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
