The Aikido Katsura Hakama ensures the greater comfort, durability, and elegance you only get by wearing a tailor-made hakama.
Aikido students at every level were never satisfied with suppliers' off-the-shelf hakama--but with little contact with Japanese craftsmen, they really had no other choice.
Atelier Katsura's founding idea was to change this. Period. And to always offer the aikido community the very best of service along with uncompromising quality.
THE KATSURA HAKAMA MADE IN JAPAN
A little over five years ago, our founder, mentored by Shirakawa Hideo--an accomplished hakama tailor with over forty years experience--mastered the art of traditional hakama tailoring.
Then, guided by the advice of an advanced aikidoka who is now a director, we introduced useful design innovations. Atelier Katsura was born.
The Katsura Hakama is 100% made in Japan at the Atelier Katsura workshops--under the distinctive Shirakawa red label. And it is sold online directly to students in the aikido community worldwide.
