雲雀結び Hibari Musubi  (Lark’s Knot)

Hibari musubi can be found in both hayanawa and honnawa technique. Due to its simple nature it is very effective as an intial capture, having the ability to be aplied quickly and securing the opponent instantly. This method of capture is able to secure fingers, wrists, arms , legs or even the neck. This knot is very important within hayanawa as it is able to secure an opponent without actually creating a ‘knot’.
Hibari musubi is a very flexable and effective metod of capture. There are many ways of utilising it, some of which we will look at, at a later date, when we cover hayanawa technique.
