Choker Ties


When playing with rope the sound and sane advice is to stay away from the neck! What you are about to learn in this course therefore falls into the "do not try at home" category.

Some rope partners love to be choked, for others it's a hard limit.

If you wish to practice the kubikazenawa (首風縄) do so responsibly. Come prepared with a safe exit strategy and keep cutting tools at hand.

Whatever your skill level be aware of the risks involved. Always treat your rope partner with respect and do not take their trust for granted.

Tanuki (Racoon Dog) Suspension

 
Raccoon Suspension


The infamous tanuki suspension (tanukizuri, 狸吊り) used to be quite popular in the early 2000's until it was replaced by another tie introduced by me to the West: the futomomo-zuri (太腿吊り).

One-rope Teppo


For extra points in the aesthetics department the elbow of the upwards-facing arm should be facing straight up. To achieve this, the shoulder should be properly rotated with the upper arm (takate, 高手) nestling behind the head.

The use of rope for combat was one of the 18 warrior skills (bugei juhappan, 武芸十八般) of the samurai.
The hojojutsu/捕縄術-inspired ties that are part of the Osada-ryu curriculum are meant to offer a tiny glimpse in history.
