Re: Kendo and Aikido hakama

Have you asked the retailers what differences there are in the two product lines?

Needless to say, Aikido and Kendo demand different things of a hakama. It might be that Aikido hakama use thicker material in the front and have a thinner, shorter koshita. It might be that Kendo hakama are made from thinner, lighter materials and are available in a wider variety of colors and patterns (Tozando has a pink one.)

it might be that the differences are negligible anyways.
