A premium quality Hakama from Miyabi, this model has been specially developed to fulfil the needs of Aikido practitioners. Our most popular Aiki model, the Tetron Aikido Hakama combines a raft of outstanding Aikido features with a traditional cut and easy-care fabric.
Built from a durable, easy-care Tetron fabric (polyester-rayon mix), these models hold a crisp, clean shape and well defined pleats which are easy to maintain with little more than correct folding. The consistent, deep black colour is resistant to fading and the top class build quality ensures a Hakama with great longevity which look its’ best throughout its lifetime.
Classic Cut – With a traditional width front panel (Maehaba) and classic pleat depth this Hakama has the classic shape and cut of a traditional model at its core with specialist Aikido features built upon
Extra Long Himo – With most Aikido schools tying the Hakama with an extra half turn around the body compared with other traditional tying methods, extra long Himo are an essential adaptation to more classic cut Hakama. This Hakama features extra long ties for both front and back pairs. Approximate measurements are of the full length of the Himo from one end to the other, including the attached central sections. Front Himo 460cm, Back Himo 230cm.
Flexible Back Plate – A common point of failure on traditional Hakama and a literal sore point with rolling break-falls, hard Koshi Ita are far from ideal for Aikido practice. These models feature a deformable clarino (imitation leather) back plate which is rigid enough to maintain its shape, but which bends harmlessly on impact and moulds around the lower back.
Internally Stitched Pleats – Designed to prevent loss of definition to the internal pleats these vertical line of stitching remain invisible at the front of the Hakama, but reinforce the structure of the Hakama making care and folding quicker and easier.
Extra Himo Stitching – 7 lines of longitudinal stitching run through the length of front and back Himo to facilitate tighter knotting, preventing your Hakama from coming loose during training.
Reinforced Side Seams – A common point of failure and an area prone to being caught by a trailing foot, the side seams of this model feature a subtle reinforcement, strengthening this weak point and adding to the overall durability of the Hakama.
Easy-Care – The Tetron fabric is a specialised mixture of Polyester and Rayon designed for easy cleaning, colour fastness and most importantly to hold its shape and folds. This material makes looking after your Hakama a breeze compared with other natural fabric options.
