The Secrets

of the

Osada-ryu / 長田流

Side Suspension


The side suspension (yokozuri, 横吊り) comes in many shapes and sizes. It is one of the most versatile suspensions with numerous poses and transitions.

For starters the Osada-ryu yokozuri offers three chest contraptions and three touch-down methods for a combination of nine base varieties. Once in the air the possibilities are almost endless from hooking the heels into the back for a sideways hogtied orientation to gently squeezing the body into an embryo position.


The Ingredients


Finding ourselves deep in the middle of the intermediate-level curriculum (chukyu, 中級) we are now ready for some serious suspension work.

The takatekote (高手小手) and front takatekote aka maete (前手) have already been covered by the sixth kyu curriculum. In the fifth kyu A we are adding a third chest tie, the nijubishinawa (二重菱縄 ) before diving deep into the secrets of the Osada-ryu side suspension techniques (yokozuri, 横吊り).

We are confident that you will enjoy this course especially for its innovative transitions and artistic touch-down methods.
