Knotless Hishi Karada [Level 1]

  There are 6 techniques you should learn before this one. Click here to add this tie as a goal and see them in order.

Notes and Resources:

This alternative way of tying a karada doesn't require pre-positioned knots along the vertical stem, which makes it much faster to tie and untie. The biggest downside of tying it this way is that if you're going to be wearing it for a while, it has more tendency for things to move around and get loose or out of place -- but overall I enjoy this method the most.

        Two points for safety:

        Before beginning this technic, make a knot in the middle with a loop of about 10cm, this is an emergency exit

        After the setting around the head, set also a knot on the collar bone, preventing that the rope could come to close to throat
