Hi folks,

I am going to have some embroidery done to my hakama and I have some related questions.

Should I use (a) my first name, (b) my family name, or
(c) both? In Katakana or Kanji?

There is no convention in my home dojo. Most people I know
use their first names, others are using both names.

In my case, there is nice kanji for my family name: kuroi (black).
My current preferred option is to use both names, my family name
as a kanji followed by my first name in katakana (http://www.jun-gifts.com/personalizedgifts/namelisttwo/a/alex2.gif).

Is this a common choice?

Thank's for any hints,

When I had my hakama embroidered, I decided to have aikido embroidered in Kanji. Not conventional, but still nice...!
