Just got back from training and one of the other Yudansha was wearing his obi on the outside of his hakama, is there any formal stance on this? Personally I think it is a good idea as it stops the age old problem of the hakama 'slipping' down - or is there another way to stop this from happening?
Thoughts would be great on this one.
Serious violation of fashion police guidelines for hakama use in aikido. There are a *couple* ryuha that do this in Japan (all non-aikido), but generally it would be like wearing your superman underoos over your jeans.
