Re: Should I Fold My Sensei's Hakama?


Yagyu Shinkage-ryu, koryu kenjutsu.

Yagyu Nobuharu-sensei, 21st soke of YSR. By the time he was in 70s, 80s, he had bad knees. Junior students folded his hakama for him.

Yagyu Koichi-sensei, 22nd soke of YSR. In his late 50s, still pretty spry. Folds his own hakama, and won't even let folks carry his bags.

Just a thought; it's probably not a koryu/gendai thing as much as it is a "creaky old guy/spry younger guy" thing.
