Re: Poll: Would you wear a hakama with its knee(s) patched in your aikido dojo?

Patching the knees one time is paying gratitude and respect to the hakama for its service. Once the patches have worn through, both sides have come to the agreement and bow out, and the entire hakama is replaced with a new one. This simply seems like the true story of the life of a hakama.
