hakama length?

I am not sure if this has been asked. But I was wondering the length of my hakama matters because it’s just below my ankle. Is that ok?


Answer: Thank you for your question! Your ankles should not show. That means your hakama should be below your ankles.

The real question is…how long is it?

If the bottom of the hakama is touching the top of your feet then might be too long.

Please take a look at the boy receiving his recognition. This is a good length.
