    I've done that with hakama, you feel like your in slow motion and it's a sinking feeling lol.

    by choice, another thing that maybe could have happened was that his pants were slipping off. If you have ever wore a traditional
    draw string pant they can untie themselves and that is never fun.
    Every once in awhile my friends and I will have a semi-serious discussion about marketing budo suspenders.

    Every time I get caught up in my hakama, which is usually when I lead warm ups and are doing some kind of burpees, squat jumps, back falls, or whatever...I just stop right where I am at and address that ****. Trying to move after your foot gets caught just makes things worse. I just stop and fix it with my hand. Another reason why I tie that **** up nice and high.

    When you are doing the warm ups can you go all samurai and tuck the ends in the himo, or is that what you mean by tying them up?

    No I don't do that when exercising, but sometimes when demonstrating technique. In fact, I try not to wear hakama this time of year when I can scam my way out of it with my teacher.

    We don't get a choice in kendo, it's just what we wear. And everyone goes ass over tea kettle eventually, catching a toe.

    For judo, those pants in the original post would be illegal. For kids we'd either roll them up or ask them to change them, anyone over 17 who steps into the shiai-jo like that would be disqualified.

    that's interesting so they would be disqualified, makes sense though you go to throw someone step on their pant leg and "look at the moon" lol

    The uniform fit is very important in judo, particularly the sleeves. In recent years IJF has introduced a special measuring device to make sure uniforms are within spec as so many people are looking for that little edge.
