How to put on your Aikido Hakama
How you put your Aikido Hakama on will slightly differ from person to person but there isn't a huge difference. Also, if there is a certain way you would like to tie it, then please go ahead and use that method.
Put your legs through and drape the front part over the knot of the Obi
Bring the string towards the front past the hips and overlap it over the place where you bought the front part of the Aikido Hakama over the Obi. Take the overlapped string and wrap it around your hip one more time and bring it forward. Make sure that the string does not twist around while this is happening.
When it is brought to the front, put some tension on it and tie it in the same way as the Obi.
Any leftover string, you can put it through the previously wrapped string or you can leave it as is.
Place the backplate over the Obi (over the hip) and bring the string to the front.
Once you put the string through, tie it below where you previously made a knot in the same way, and you are finished.
