he Hakama is a traditional Japanese garment, which was worn as early as 900 AD by men in the highest social classes of Japan. Its origin - it is believed - probably lies in the Heian period (794 - 1185), when women at the imperial court wore culottes over their kimono. As a traditional garment, the samurais adopted the hakama as early as the 12th century. Until World War II, it was normal for men to wear hakama and haori in public. With the "westernization" of Japan, the hakama was only worn on formal occasions such as weddings, ceremonies and shrine visits, at traditional Japanese dance, as well as in various martial arts (e.g. Aikido, Iaido or Kendo) (with leg division). In addition to protecting the legs in combat, it was also used in swordfighting so that the position of the feet was not visible to the opponent - so the opponent could not draw any conclusion from the position of the feet as to how the attack or defense was made.

The Hakama has seven folds, which symbolize the seven virtues of Budo:
JIN - goodness | GI - honor, justice | REI - courtesy, etiquette | CHI - wisdom, intelligence | SHIN - sincerity | CHU - loyalty | KOH - reverence
