Hojōjutsu (捕縄術) is the traditional Japanese martial arts of tying up your opponent using the sageo of your sword or other himo. It has came to our attention that unfortunately, very little attention is given to this remarkable art.
Though not common, Hojōjutsu is part of certain bujutsu koryū such as jujutsu school Takenouchi-ryū. Besides restraining techniques also several defensive and disarming techniques are taught within this school.
The Samurai Workshop – evangelist for traditional Japanese bujutsu and weaponry – is making a great effort to supply you with traditionally used weaponry as well as offering repair and customization services.
