The untiable hakama is a tool used by zen masters similar to the zen koan.

The hakama is never tied perfectly. It is the students' job to recognize that tying the hakama so that it will never become loose is impossible. Once the students understand that principle, they will discover that their hakama has always been tied well.

/end babbling and boredom.
