Welcome to Shibari Dojo's Glossary and Knowledge-Base (KB)

Having read countless articles, numerous books, and seen many videos on the subject of Japanese Rope Bondage, shibari, and kinbaku, I had come across a myriad of words, terms, and sources that I had to go look up, sometimes without any success until much later. Now my students and friends are doing the same, so I'm opting to compile such things here into a series of articles for everyone to enjoy.
