Can anyone tell me where to find a good iaido obi? ALso, what makes for a good obi?

Bujin (http://www.bujindesign.com/cgi-bin/catalog/access) makes what lookes like a nice 4" broad obi at $33 -- better (and cheaper) than some I brought back from Japan, which were a little broader than judo belts.



Good hunting.

Has some nice obi that are very affordable. Go to the clothing and find links to the obi. These are a bit wider then the usual keiko obi for use with sword and work great for keeping your hakama secure.

Neil,

You wear your obi outside the hakama? If so, why? I've seen a few schools do this, but they're usually jujutsu -- so I think the obi [usually a "judo" type] is worn just to display rank.

Or, did you mean they work well for "keeping your keikogi secure" ?

Ever curious,
Guy

Hi Guy. Sounds like a shaving cream commmercial.

You got me, I mis typed what I meant to input via the keyboard. Somehow hakama came into my statement. Apologies for clumsy fingers!!
