Description

This will be a live, online class offered through Zoom. No on-site tickets will be available.

Hojojutsu is a Japanese martial art of securing a prisoner with rope. Ties attack air, energy, and blood pathways. If the prisoner struggles, increased pain and discomfort occur. The techniques are not comfortable, not nice, and highly effective. This class will maintain the martial aspect of Hojojutsu while using techniques in a reasonably safe manner for play. A brief history of Hojojutsu, types of ropes used, how to prepare rope for use and several capture ties (hayanawa) will be taught including from tasuki (rope to hold back kimono), torinawa (capture rope, fast rope bundle) and practiced with detail and assistance. If time allows, a honnawa or transport tie will be taught to replace the hayanawa for sustainability. This is a hands-on class though participation is not required. Please bring your own rope.
