This is me ...

... wearing a dress.

I assure you, this is the done thing in Aikido. Apparently it's, like, a tradition. It's called a Hakama. It has an incredibly complex closing mechanism (no velcro, more's the pity) and it has a load of folds. Folds which you are supposed to keep in there. Carefully. So, every time you've used it, you've got to refold it. Painstakingly. Every fold has a name too. And a symbolic meaning. I decided not to get THAT invested in it yet. I find putting the damn thing on a challenge as is. And it's fucking hot too ...

So far ... I'm not enjoying this very much.

However ... it does look ... cool. Somehow ... in a Steven "not fat yet" Segal way.
