Service details
Hakama Alteration - Koshiita height adjustment

  • The Koshiita should sit on top of the belt. (Seido Hakama are fitted to be worn with a common Judo type belt.)
  • High Koshiita (Iaido style): The Koshiita is higher than the front strap, to be worn with a Kakuobi/large Iai type belt.
  • Low Koshiita: The base of the Koshiita is about 2 cm lower than the front strap. This allows to fold the front belt into the "Judo type belt" without getting a crumpled Hakama when tied.
  • Adjusting the height of the Koshiita according to your belt/style of wearing, helps that the pleats fall nicely and flat.

Dogi & Hakama Sashiko Bag

Made in Japan

Material: 100% Unbleached Sashiko Cotton

Dimensions: 43 cm x 55 cm (rope length is about 195 cm in total).

Embroidery color: 18 colors to chose from (the same color applies for both the kanji main design and the name option).

Name option: Name embroidery at the bottom of the bag (see product pictures)

This cotton bag can fit a dogi, hakama, belt and towel. The ropes and port on the back are thick and comfortable. For optimal quality, Seido logo, Aikido calligraphy, "Ki" calligraphy and all other designs are not printed but embroidered. Made 100% from japanese made unbleached sashiko cotton, this product is eco friendly.

Here are all the designs we offer and their meaning: 

  • The Seido embroidery is based on the Seido label attached to all Seido equipments.
  • The Aikido embroidery is based on a calligraphy found in the main dojo of Aikikai Hombu Dojo. It was created by Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei when he was 80 years old, a period in his life when his calligraphy reached its peak. Note that the depth and extension of ideograms are a sign of an open mind.
  • The "Ki' embroidery is based on the same calligraphy as the "Aikido embroidery" but only contains the second kanji "Ki".
  • Judo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Karatedo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Kendo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Iaido - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Zanshin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Remaining mind, or lingering mind. 
  • Mushin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : No mind (mental state), or mind without mind.
  • Heijoshin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Calm, imperturbable, relaxed heart/mind
  • Shingitai - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : The unification of mind, skills and body.
  • Takemusu Aiki - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Aikido concept, the unity of martial techniques through the concept of Aiki.

Option "Name Embroidery":

Optionally, you can add your name as embroidery. It will be embroidered on the left of the bottom part (same high as the Seido label), with a font size of 2 cm by 2 cm.
Please note that due to our technical settings and to improve the overall balance, it is only possible to embroider either a first name, a last name or a word (1 word).

Product Information & Size Chart

  • Aikido Tetron Hakama

    Made in Japan | Black, Navy or White

    Material: Tetron (65% polyester / 35% rayon)

    Shrinkage: 0% | Weight (size 26): 0.92 kg

    Shape: Traditional Aikido cut (flexible koshiita, straps with 7 lines of stitching)

    This model is made of a composite fabric polyester/rayon, a combination that provides our hakama with durable quality. This synthetic model is solid, comfortable, and very easy to maintain thanks to a special iron treatment that keeps pleats perfect in any place. We recommend it for young practitioners and for those training daily. Tetron is the fabric most commonly used in the manufacture of Japanese Hakama for Kendo, Iaido, and Aikido. The fabric that we use is slightly thicker and stronger than the fabrics used for common Kendo or Iaido models. The uncompromising quality of our tetron hakama is illustrated by the 7 rows of stitching on the straps for extra robustness. The flexible Koshiita made of durable composite rubber is safe for any kind of ukemi.

    Easy to fold and to maintain, this model may be hand-washed and dried on a hanger (holding the folds using clothespins) without risk of losing the pleats or damaging the fabric. The color does not fade even though a slight color transfer may occur due to frictions.
    For maximum comfort, the strap length is adjusted according to the size of the hakama.
    As all our Hakama, this model is fully made in Japan (fabric, cut and stitching).
    For size smaller than 22, please contact us for custom order.

    Please note that the white version is made to order in about 4 to 5 weeks.

    Option (made to order): sewing of the inside pleats

    Though Synthetic Hakama are quite easy to maintain, we propose to sew the inner pleats for those who want to make the folding as easy as possible. The pleats are sewn on the inside, which makes them completely invisible when worn. The result however is that the pleats are better kept, and the "puffed out" aspect the hakama will be reduced.
