Does everyone here who is a Shodan or above always wear the hakama? I am not at that level, but some of the sensei at the Tainan dojo do not, and some do.

Some where their hakama always, some don't. Even high ranking teachers like Kanetsuka sensei not always wear their hakama.

Hi all,

Does anyone happen to know the significance or meaning of the black vs. indigo or even brown or grey hakama? Did they used to represent different clans? regions? particular martial art background?

also, a little off-topic. I have a black hapkido gi and and planning to start formal aikido training in a few weeks. I know my current gi is durable enough for aikido, but is it totally untraditional and unacceptable to use in an aikido dojo? I understand I should ask my sensei for the final decision, but I just thought I might eliminate an option right now after hearing from some people.

Thanks!

Clayton
