Double Column Tie

Typically used to tie either on the arms or legs the double column tie can also be used for tying to poles or bamboo or furniture and the like.

The advantage of a double column tie is the elements aren’t pressed together which can contribute to reduced circulation or simply make the tie very uncomfortable or even painful. I often use a double column tie to start Gote Ninoude Gattai or a Ryouashi Gattai Ichimonji Shibari.

It is important to note that the wraps should be checked to make sure they are flat.

Once complete the hands or legs can be attached to a suspension point or similar however the tie does not lend itself to taking full body weight.
