Hakama care

And here I was worried that my wrinkly hak look was not 'traditional' ... then I see this photo.

I'm short a few wrinkles. But, this feller wasn't really very traditional either. Let's not get into the hair thingy. Or the shoes.

Re: Hakama care

Of course I read your subject and thought "Hakama care? Because I'm a compassionate person..." :-)
But seriously folks.... do you think these guys were going to fire up an iron and press their haks!

Re: Hakama care

I have seen many senior people who train in aikido with hakama that the pleats have dissapeared from. They mostly hang theirs, so the pleats just sort of fell away. Folding them is a pain in the butt!

Of course not ... that is a job for the wife. Now, if I can just get my wife to stop laughing at me ....
