Hojōjutsu is the traditional Japanese martial art of restraining a person using cord or rope.
Encompassing many different materials, techniques and methods from many different schools, Hojojutsu is a quintessentially Japanese art that is a unique product of Japanese history and culture.
As a martial arts practice, Hojojutsu is seldom if ever taught on its own but as part of a curriculum under the aegis of the body of study encompassed by a larger school of bugei or budō (traditional martial arts), often as an advanced study in jujutsu.
Whatever their source, Hojojutsu techniques & methods are seldom demonstrated outside of Japan and, unlike its cousin Shibari (Japanese erotic bondage), there are many who consider it a moribund art.
