Nawa Yumio: 十手捕縄の研究
”Jitte Torinawa No Kenkyuu” (1964)

This ”Study of the constables use of truncheon and rope” is mainly a textbook, with a few images, unfortunately (for the interests of this blog), mainly of truncheons… The very few images of hojo-rope, I have reproduced here.

Nawa Yumio, famous for his historically oriented books and articles documenting hojojutsu as well as Edo-era forms of punishment and torture, also wrote the script for two dramatic films on this theme: ”Onna Hankacho I–II, Edo gomon keibatsu” (1998), directed by Masaru Tsushima, with lots of content relevant for anyone interested in ”semenawa”.
