Re: Tying The Hakama

Chuck,

Two questions:

- Do you find that when you alternate between tucking the front for empty hand and not tucking for weapons, that this changes the length significantly enough to be an annoyance? I.e., do you end up either with a "high-water hakama" when tucking, or having it be too long when not tucking?

I also switch back and forth between tucked and untucked and find that I prefer to actually put on a longer or shorter hakama when doing so.

- Does the knot of the front himo in back bother you during any ukemi? I prefer to tie both knots in front if I am going to be doing any ukemi.

Chris
