Hakama - Navy Blue Wide Maehaba Tetron

£62.50 ex VAT
£75.00 inc VAT

Miyabi dark navy blue, wide cut Tetron Hakama for Kendo, Jodo and Aikido.


Traditionally, Hakama width does not vary with changes in size, only the length of the Hakama changes to match the pelvis to ankle drop.  Classic cut Hakama are a fairly slim fit in general terms regardless of size selection.  Formal Hakama tend to be cut from a wider bolt of fabric, giving a wider shape and silhouette.


When correctly tied, a degree of opening of the Hakama pleats is both normal and desirable, the exterior pleats are not designed to hang perfectly vertically.  However, in some cases, for wider body shapes, that pleat opening can be pushed to an extreme and the Hakama can feel tight and restrictive when tied.


Enter the wide Maehaba Hakama.  The Maehaba or front section of this Hakama is created from a wider bolt of fabric, increasing both the overall coverage of the front section, and the depth of the pleats.


This special model follows the lines of the higher class formal cut and in doing so also accommodates wider hips and waist shapes, reducing excessive flaring and constraint, and eliminating excessive gaping of the side vents.  


Features include:


Wide Maehaba Style – Perfect for bigger frames and wider hips, the wide front section hangs with perfect pleat flare, eliminating gaping at the sides and issues of constraint caused by classic cuts.


Extra Long Himo - This Hakama features longer Himo than average to enable comfortable tying for wider body shapes.  Total front Himo length is 385cm, total back Himo length is 205cm.


Easy Care Fabric – Created from our popular premium Tetron (polyester-rayon mix), this Hakama is the ultimate in ease of care.  Tetron is easy to keep free of debris, holds its pleats and shape impeccably and keeps its rich colour for years of practice.


Internal Pleat Stitching – The internal line of the pleats, those hidden from view, feature a vertical line of stitching to assist the maintenance of pleat structure, making Hakama folding and care even easier.


Comfort Fit Koshi-Ita – The back plate is formed from a thick layer of deformable neo-leather, preventing corners digging in and maximising comfort and fit.

Hakama are nice. Though it feels strange having a soft koshita it still sits well. It is nice to have the wide front option. Unfortunately there does not seem to have an allowance at the back. So i find as a larger woman the pleats still do not hang well

Hakama - Navy Blue Wide Maehaba Tetron
Hi Team, I must echo some of the other comments on here - everything I've bought from Nine Circles - aikido gi, bokken, jo, tanto and now the hakama have been such good quality and all well priced. My friends in Sweden prefer these products to the locally available selection despite the exchange rate. Thanks for the great service and fast delivery too. Ron

I have 2 gi, 1 hakama, 3 bokken and a tanto from nine circles. Always helpful and great products. I can't rate them high enough. If I could vote 6 stars I would but you can only go to 5. Thanks Nine Circles. Chris.

Your site is amazing in all aspects from the simplest adresses the best katana. Very good
