Re: Hakama and Obi tying. . .
This discussion has convinced me that I need to hurry up and get my velcro hakama.
All these belts and ties and stuff are a nuisance. Veclro is the way to go.
Mind you, I couldn't help noticing that my friend - who holds the patent for the velcro hakama - wore a traditional hakama with a belt while he was in Japan.
Still, I'm counting the days...
