- Hojojutsu is the opposite, in many ways, of the nice, happy rope arts that are taught and practiced by many rope artists. There are ways to make Hojo bedroom/play acceptable for those who don't necessarily want to potentially damage their partners. Hojojutsu is one of the martial art forms, from which the erotic art of tying has its roots. It is the antithesis to all that is gentle, nice, and sweet about rope. This hands-on class will focus on how to get your (willing, consensual) partner into a fairly helpless position. An understanding (and shameless exploitation) of body mechanics is at the root of this class. What is taught here breaks many of the strictures about safe, kind, and comfortable play, so it is very much edge-play.
