During the mid 1400’s, Japanese warriors popularised ‘quick capture’ techniques, where rope was used to restrain enemies on the battlefield.

By the 1600’s rope had become a key part of law enforcement. The act of capturing, binding, and restraining criminals (or suspects) with rope continued to evolve for over another 200 years, before the martial art now most commonly known as HojoJutsu began to disappear from society.

Hojojutsu is now a relatively obscure martial art, but it is still practiced in Japan, and has spread to other countries around the globe. And is now more commonly refered to as Torinawa Jutsu, which is still pracitced by the Japanese police force today.
