    what does that have to do with the sport of kendo?

    rule one needs more logical definition of the term "silly," which should primarily hinge upon functionality, while still having room to mock people in completely fucking absurd outfits. not counting sho'nuff. he can wear what he wants.

    what home forum is that Pauli, I need to check out your rules so that I can plagerise someone who can spell propally.

    BJJ gi are the difficult area to rule on. Heavyweight gi = functional. Thousands of patches = silly. We don't want people using a functionality argument as a loophole for silliness. Kendo - great sport, silly clothes. I guess they could argue that the hakama disguiise their footwork and since they are a sport where hiding your footwork is a function, then yes I suppose we could allow it. BUT, Aikido - since they only "fight" compliant uke there is no need to hide the footwork.

    screw you.

    The backs of my hands are extremely reflective, and when I run it creates hurricanes and tornadoes that make my sleeves ruffle and flutter with the noise of a thousand seagulls in gale force winds, therefore the arm gauntlets are necessary.

    And no, ninjas dont tie their gi's to their bodies to minimize noise; it's done to keep us from accidentally teleporting naked.

    as far as the rest is concerned: masks are fashionable, leg warmers keep your fucking legs warm, and tabi shoes allow you to identify your own footprints in the snow (which is important if you're ever lost in the arctic).

    There is too much stupidity in martial Arts today, something must be done about. If, nay, when, we achieve power, we must institute the following rules ASAP:

    1. Silly uniforms. People wearing silk pajamas, Hakama, non-functional gis or any other form of silly clothing whilst doing what is essentially a sport activity will be shot on site.
    Well, its your job to tell the Japanese about the hakamas

And that is, through the harsh training of Kendo, our hope is that you learn not only the technical skills of the sword, but to understand the social and ethical aspects of the Samurai as well as the spirit (mental attitude) of the Samurai. In other words, we hope that you will understand Kendo as Budo and to experience the training of it. A Shinai is a Samurai’s sword. Keiko-gi and Hakama are a Samurai’s formal attire. They should not be considered simply sports-wear. Without understanding this “spirit,” Kendo will merely be another physical exercise. We hope that you will try to understand and appreciate the profundity and cultural values of Kendo.
    Or to rephrase, we kendoka don't care what some eclectic fighters think - we're doing this for reasons that you don't care about or understand.

    Lol@the Hakama wearers getting all defensive. So kendoka are LARPing at being Samurai that's why they wear skirts. fair play, admit it's LARPing and you can get away with it as per the LARPing Tollerance rule.
