I'm just full of questions today.
Ok, so my club bought a nice hakama for our sensei, and we want to get it embroidered. I just today realized that I don't really know what to embroider on it.
I figured his name and maybe
What is the convention for this, or is there one at all? And is there a symbolic difference between colors of thread used? I see gold quite often, but occasionally white or silver and both of those look pretty sharp, too. (it's a black hakama, if that makes a difference).
We're lucky enough to have a couple Japanese students, Rie and Taku, and Taku swears up and down that Rie is very skilled at calligraphy, so I'm taking his word for it. So whatever we decide on should be easily trasferred to kanji.
