Hojo, binding with rope, was used for centuries in Japan. Samurai would tie up prisoners taken in battle and collect ransoms for their return. Later, police in the Edo Era further refined these techniques and developed specific ties for each type of person. The ties were different depending on whether the suspect was a Samurai, commoner, monk, woman, child or mountain ascetic.
This book looks at how these tying with rope techniques were described in various manuals from the 1800s up through World War II. While the early instruction manuals contained only illustrations and a few mysterious notations, later books contained detailed descriptions of each stage of the tying process.
This book contains translations of the following ten resources intended to show how instruction in this art changed over the centuries:
