Yanagi Ryu – Hojōjutsu (Tying Arts of the Samurai)
D.J.Angier, inheritor of Yanagi Ryu Bugei, demonstrates Yoshida-Han No Yanagi Ryu, Willow style tying Arts of the Yoshida Family.
Hojjutsu is an ancient Japanese martial technique that involves restraining someone with a string or rope.
Hojojutsu is a distinctly Japanese art that is a unique product of Japanese history and culture, including many diverse materials, techniques, and procedures from many different schools.
As a martial arts discipline, Hojojutsu is rarely, if ever, taught on its own, but rather as part of a curriculum contained by a larger school of bugei or bud (traditional martial arts), frequently as an advanced study in jujutsu.
Whatever their origins, Hojojutsu techniques and practices are rarely shown outside of Japan, and, unlike its relative Shibari (Japanese sensual bondage), many see it as a dormant art.
