Bryan,

I used to tie my hakama this way, but I found that the sides of the hakama gapped open. I also found that if you didn't tie the straps real tight, the koshiita would slip down. Tying the front first has helped me feel my center more. It's just that there is so much excess strap to tuck and wrap up.
