How to Fold a Hakama

At the end of aikido and kendo classes, it's common to fold the hakama. There are many different ways of doing this. The footage below shows a technique caught on film some time ago in southern Japan. They don't teach "visitors" this method, so you won't see it being done like this anywhere in the West.

Minor update: It has been drawn to our attention that we may have been mistaken in believing this was shot in southern Japan. It might have been in Staines.
