I typically use the first method show here:

However, I'm a bit confused on the second method that is shown. (the Traditional Method)

Step 2 has you tie the back himo in front about chest height. Then proceeds with the front himo. However at no time does it show what to do with the back himo. Something appears to be missing between caption 3 and 5.
Good point, Steven. I've sent in a "bug report" into the folks at Bu Jin Design.

The way I tie my hakama, though, is very much like the "Traditional Method" shown there and is probably about the same as the one that Peter Goldsbury relates above. I tuck the front himo under my belt rather than tying it into a bow near my chest, though.
