Human gait is a significant biometric feature used for the identification of people by their style of walking. Gait offers recognition from a distance at low resolution while requiring no user interaction. On the other hand, other biometrics are likely to require a certain level of interaction. In this paper, a human gait recognition method is presented to identify people who are wearing long baggy clothes like Thobe and Abaya. Microsoft Kinect sensor is used as a tool to establish a skeleton based gait database. The skeleton joint positions are obtained and used to create five different datasets. Each dataset contained different combination of joints to explore their effectiveness. An evaluation experiment was carried out with 20 walking subjects, each having 25 walking sequences in total. The results achieved good recognition rates up to 97%.
