What is a Tetron Hakama?

Those looking for a new Aikido Hakama are likely to have come across the word “Tetron.” Tetron is neither a Japanese dish, nor a fancy word for a new model of a Japanese car. What is Tetron then?

Tetron = Polyester

Tetron is a type of polyester made by Thoray and Tejin Companies and it is a registered Trademark. The name Tetron is usually used in a 100% polyester composition, but also in blends. In the case of Hakama, the blend consists of polyester for 65% and of artificial silk (rayon) for 35%.

Advantages Tetron?

The use of Tetron/polyester has several advantages. It softens clothing, gives it a somewhat shiny look, and makes it cooler to wear than other materials. In Southeast Asia for instance, Tetron is used in two/three piece suits, because it is a very nice material to maintain and clean. Apparently, Gianni Versace was one of the first fashion designers to introduce Tetron to the international fashion world successfully.

These advantages naturally also apply to the use in Aikido Hakama, especially in warmer climates. Here is a list of the advantages of Tetron Hakama (in combination with artificial silk too) over cotton Aikido Hakama:

  • Nice and a bit shiny material
  • Easy to use as it does not wrinkle easily
  • Tetron does not get dirty as quickly
  • Stays cooler during trainings

Purchasing Tetron Hakama?

At the moment, Aikipro offers several Aikido Hakama made of Tetron from the brand Seido.
