Has anyone tried this hakama for Aikido practice ?
It looks very interesting. I am curious about it's durability.
I've only ever worn the Iwata cotton indigo hakama, which I like but it's time for new one. The e-bogu is significantly less expensive than the Iwata (or Tozando for that matter).
Slightly old thread but, I have the exact hakama shown in the e-bogu link and its a blody nice bit of cloth. Its a heavy hakama but not quite as heafty as the one I wear for kendo.
The inner stitched pleats are great however, I've already split the threads near the knees having done quite a bit of suwari waza, other than that its one of the best hakama I've worn for aikido.
