Hojojutsu was part of the Samurai martial art repertoire of ancient Japan and has a long and complex history.

In the Edo period this martial art style was codified by law enforcement officials for the control, interrogation and punishment of criminals. As a result, Hojojutsu is fast, secure and harsh.

For this class, these Hojojutsu ties have been modified for safety and can be used with standard size ropes. They have also been adapted so they can be worn for longer periods of time safely and more comfortably.

These ties form the roots of the Japanese bondage we see and enjoy today. Come learn how fast, secure and elegant these ties can be.

Much of the class will consist of hands-on exercises to help you get familiar with the material in a friendly, low-pressure environment. The emphasis is on learning, having fun, and building confidence.

If you can, come with a practice partner. If you don't have a partner, come anyway and we'll make sure you get a chance to practice the basic techniques. Rope Bottoms- this is your chance to meet some rope tops - come learn and get tied up!

Some rope will be provided for the workshop, but bring the following if you can

  • (2) 30-foot pieces of 6mm hemp

If you don't have suitable rope, Monk (of www.TwistedMonk.com) will be selling hemp rope before the workshop.  Please show up 15 minutes early if you would like to buy rope.

This workshop assumes no previous bondage experience, and is appropriate for all genders and orientations.
