Product Information & Size Chart
Keiko Tetron Aikido Hakama
Made in Japan | Black or Navy
Material: Tetron (65% polyester / 35% rayon)
Shrinkage: 0% | Weight (size 26): 0.90 kg
Shape: Reinforced Aikido cut
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 due to a special pressing treatment which keeps the pleats perfectly in place. We recommend it 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. This is our most popular model in Japan, especially for regular training because of its durability and very good value.
The overall shape of this model is almost identical to other models, however, the finish differs in many ways. This model was designed for intense practice and presents many reinforced parts. While the otherTetron version is, like all our other Hakama, partially hand sewn (Koshiita, lateral vents and some inner sewing), the Keiko Tetron is completely machine sewn. The Koshiita is made of thick clarino material (Japanese made leather imitation) which allows to stitch and due to that fix 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 far 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 to maintain, this model may be hand-washed and dried on a hanger (securing the folds using clothespins) without risk of losing the pleats or damaging the fabric.
As all our Hakama, this model is fully made in Japan (fabric, cut and stitching). The color may slightly fade at the first wash.
Option (made to order): sewing of the inside pleats (+ 2,500 JPY)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 stitchings are 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.
