Re: Heavyweight Hakama Easier to Move in?

I study both Aikido and Iaido and haven't suffered too many problems as you describe however, they do happen.

I've worn cheap hakama and Japanese made hakama, although I find the quality far better with a well made hakama, I can't say I've found that to be an issue with problems you mention.

I wear my hakama so that the hem is slightly above the bridge of my feet, I've found that is the ideal height fo me and I rarely get it caught. Wearing hakama will take a little getting used to. Like all things in our training.

As with anything we buy, I'd suggest you purchase a good quality hakama.. Bujin design make for top gear.

Enjoy
