In General Did I mention Christmas yet? Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Guess not!

My wife, God love her, is a very supporting wife despite my short commings. For christmas this year, she gave me two new pairs of Gi pants from Bu Jin. These are awsome, by the way. My other pair are wearing thin in the knees and are the basic cheesy ones you get with a cheep gi. But Bu Jin makes them with: velcro clasp instead of buttons or clips, belts that can tighten and cinch but not pinch (poet and didn't know it.) and ZIPPERS! That's a good thing.

Anyways, I needed those and am greatful. ALSO... she got me a hakama! Now, I'm not black belt, but I've wanted a proper hakama for a while, just too cheap. She got one on clearence and the length is great! However, the width is "XL" and I'm a big guy, so I thought that should be right. But ya gotta see this thing! IT'S HUGE ! Really gotta get it to Sensei and get his opinion on it.

If you ever order from Bu Jin, make sure they know your measurements before ordering. I have a feeling I'll keep this thing despite the size. I got a Gi from them off the clearence rack and it was too large as well. Need to start ordering the "L"arges instead of "XL's".

Next up on my list: Best Aikido: the Basics and Ikeda Sensei's 4 part DVD on various techniques! I've seen the Irimi video, and it's very good. Looking forward to getting all 4, but on the DVD version.

What did you get??

I tried on the hakama again last night and though it is large... now that I look at it again, I think it's just about the right size. YIPES! Damn I'm a big dude. LOL Not that I'm one to brag, but...
