This product is a Seido original product designed by our team

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)

  • Jujutsu - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Zanshin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Remaining mind, or lingering mind.

  • Takemusu Aiki - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Aikido concept, the unity of martial techniques through the concept of Aiki.

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

  • 'Cashmere Touch' Aikido Training Hakama

    Made in Japan | Black or Navy
    Material: Cashmere Touch polyester (100% polyester)
    Shrinkage: 0% | Weight (size 26): 1.10 kg
    Shape: Reinforced Aikido cut

    Born from the success of the Keiko Tetron Aikido Hakama and from customer requests for a heavier and better-looking model, the 'Cashmere Touch' Aikido Training Hakama is a combination of the Traditional Cashmere Touch model and the Keiko Tetron Aikido Hakama. The fabric is the same as the traditional model's.
    Almost as good-looking as the Tradition version, this model is the best compromise between a "hard daily training" Hakama and a good-looking Hakama made for demonstrations. If you want a good look but only get to buy one Hakama, that's the model to go!

    The "cashmere touch" polyester fabric provides durable quality, a slight stretch effect, and a weight almost as heavy as cotton.
    The overall shape of this model is identical to the Keiko model. Designed for intense practice it presents many reinforced parts.  While the traditional versions are partially hand-sewn (Koshiita, lateral vents, and some inner sewing), the Keiko model is completely machine-sewn. The Koshiita is made of thick Clarino material (Japanese synthetic leather) which allows stitching and fixing the fabric directly onto the plate. We also noticed that the Clarino Koshiita is more comfortable to wear than the thicker rubber plates when taking Ukemi (but also more expensive than rubber). The lateral vents are reinforced with an added piece of fabric and the front and back straps are slightly larger than those of the other models. The pleats are pressed with a high-pressure industrial press which durably fixes the pleats. Easy to fold and maintain, this model may be hand-washed and dried on a hanger (securing the folds using clothespins) without the risk of losing the pleats or damaging the fabric.

    Due to the stretch effect of the fabric, we have made the straps slightly shorter than they are on the Tetron version. The straps will stretch, which, despite their shorter length, will fit the same waist/hips size as the Tetron version.
    The stretching effect on the straps will allow to tie the Hakama more firmly, so we especially recommend this model to practitioners feeling their Hakama coming up and getting loose during practice. This is why we have not fitted the straps with a cotton core, which would have drastically reduced the stretching effect.

    Please note that this product is not customizable. Please refer to our other Hakama for custom-made options. 

    Strap length:
    Size 24 -> Back strap: 180 cm / Front strap: 400 cm = up to ~ 90 cm in waist
    From size 24.5 -> Back strap: 190 cm / Front strap: 420 cm = up to ~ 95 cm in waist.

    As all our Hakama, this model is fully made in Japan (fabric, cut, and stitching). The color may slightly fade after the first wash.

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

    Though synthetic Hakama are quite easy to maintain, we offer to sew the inner pleats to make the folding as easy as possible. The pleats are sewn on the inside and therefore the stitching is completely invisible when worn. The result however is that the pleats are better kept, and the "puffed out" aspect of the Hakama will be reduced.

    Super Quick Delivery and Ultra-Soft: My Awesome Experience with the Cashmere Touch Aikido Hakama!

    I was thrilled with my recent purchase of the Cashmere Touch Aikido Hakama! The delivery speed caught me by surprise; it was much faster than anticipated, making the whole experience even more delightful. But what truly impressed me was the quality of the hakama itself. The material is incredibly soft, providing comfort I hadn't experienced before in my training gear. Even more, it's remarkably light, allowing for fluid and unrestricted movement during practice. This hakama is not just a purchase; it's a significant upgrade to my Aikido experience!

    Fantastic hakama

    Bought a new hakama while I visited Hombu Dojo in Tokyo.
    Ordering was very easy and Seido delivered it to my hotel ready for my practice at Hombu.
    It’s a beautiful good looking hakama and the embroidery with my name is top notch.
    I opted for stitched pleats to make folding and maintenance easier. They are very subtle and hopefully will keep the hakama looking good for years to come.
    I wanted a hakama that looked good in cashmere touch but could withstand rigorous Keiko. I’m very very pleased.
    Thank you Seido

    Pas déçu

    Toucher agréable, souple, bel aspect. La petite élasticité des sangles est très bien pour ajuster le Hakama et ne bouge pas pendant la pratique. On ne sent pas le koshita pendant les chutes. C'est mon premier Hakama mais j'en suis très satisfait.

    Beautiful Hakama!

    I’m currently a Sandan ranked Aikidoka who enjoys rigorous training. I’m 5’8, 178lbs and usually wear a size 26 cotton hakama. I have pretty long legs and prefer my hakama below my ankle. I was a little concerned that the sizing of a synthetic hakama would be slightly different than my previous indigo cotton ones, and reached out to Seido’s Customer Support Team for advice. They were patient, understanding, and informative as I waffled back and forth between sizes. I eventually chose a size 27 and it fits beautifully slightly below my ankle. The pleats are perfect, the material is exquisite, and I love the way it sits securely on my hips. Although not as heavy as my cotton hakama, it feels quite durable. Furthermore, the delivery from Japan was extremely fast- embroidered and sent to me within a week! I am looking forward to training in this hakama for many seasons…this was truly an excellent investment!
