Having no experience with a hakama, I still loved to try on my indigo dyed hakama. it fit well and I can move in any direction freely. It moves and flows in exercise very comfortably and I hope to wear it to class one day, too. I felt that this was a wise investment in my aikido practice, for the future.

This hakama is my third cotton hakama. If I had known this website before my previous two purchases, I definitely would not have spent a penny on them. The quality of AikiJapan's cotton hakama is truly superb. If I am to buy another cotton hakama again, surely I will return to AikiJapan.

Excellent quality Hakama. Not only beautiful but also great fit and comfortable. I always wanted this Hakama from Aiki Japan because my Sensei is wearing it and it looks excellent! So I got mine as I received my 3rd Dan. The color of mine is still fresh deep-navy color but it will get lighter navy color like my sensei’s after the several washing, I suppose. I am very pleased with this Hakama.

Needed a better Hakama for Testing and Demo's so I chose this cotton one to replace my well aged Tetron Hakama. I find that it drapes with far better structure and emphasises my stance and form. It is a bit hotter than a Tetron Hakama and slightly higher maintenace, but its a more than fair trade off if it means that I can look better in it and pass more Shinsa's!!
