J = Japanese Style Bondage


Japanese style bondage has it's origins in an traditional bondage, and often not for fun purposes in the past, I might add. But today's Japanese bondage is all about the art of knots. Japanese masters are the masters of knot tying. The more complex series of knots, the better the rigger (the one that ties) is.
Here are two examples of "Ushiro takate kote shibari" or High hands behind back binding. Now of course not everyone is as flexible as the ladies in the drawings, but a lot of bondage practice makes the one tied up (for fun, always for fun remember?) more flexible as times goes by.


Japanese bondage style is often referred to as Shibari or Kinbaku. There is much discussion about the distinction between shibari and kinbaku, and whether one term is more appropriate than another. I will stick to Japanese bondage. The journey of the binding is maybe even more important than the end product, it is seen as a way to communicate between the one who is bound and put her trust in you and the hands of the one that binds. Traditional Japanese bondage techniques use natural vegetable fiber rope (hemp, jute, or linen) exclusively with multiple 6-8 meters of rope.


The honour of ancient Samurai warriors was rated on how well they took charge of their prisoners, and the technique used to tie the prisoner showed the honor and status of that Samurai. There were four rules of binding prisoners
1. Not to allow the prisoner to slip his bonds;
2. Not to cause any physical or mental injury;
3. Not to allow others to see the techniques;
4. To make the result beautiful to look at.

Our "prisoners" now will appreciate the rules above. There are many instruction video's about Japanese bondage, because many people like to show what they can do with this type of bondage art. The instruction video's I chose, was about Ushiro takate kote shibari.

Of course.
