Re: Tying The Hakama

When I was tying the front first and the knot behind the back, it did bother me. Also, when tying the front first, it does look nicer & neater, however, it does tend to slip down if you work out hard and it is also a chore to deal with all that extra strap you have left over from both himos. I tied the back first on Saturday and wrapped the front straps around the outside and tied them in the front. As Arjan wrote, it fit great, stayed in place, and never slipped. But is one way traditional?
