  • Hakama to big

    I have been struggling to feel comfortable and to look right in my Hakama. I thought it might be as it was new and still quite stiff. Over the weekend I washed the whole outfit again and then spent some time trying to get my fitting right.

    I am sure it is to big for me.. maybe by one size. I will talk to the people at the Dojo that sold it to me tomorrow night at Kendo but am not sure if I will get them to replace it after I have already used it.

    My question is, is there any way to alter the hakama to fit a little better. The length will not be a problem to turn up an inch or so, the problem is on the side. I am not sure what you call the opening, but when I have done the himo up (front and back) the opening in is closed up. I then adjust as best I can, but the back of the opening sticks out like a air brake.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Talk to your sensei about it. Maybe you got a size too big.
