When you have tied the munenawa and have excess rope that you aren't sure what to do with there are plenty of options. If you want to keep your bottom's hands under control this is a great way to accomplish that and use up that rope.
A few things to note before starting: this is not a super secure tie. An eel will wriggle out of this fairly easily or if you have someone that likes to be more secure then you will need to add additional wraps or rope into the mix to make it more secure. You might also find that some bottoms (particularly muscular people with a lot of upper body strength) may have a tough time maintaining this position. Just something to watch out for.
|Start with a lock knot. after completing the munenawa pull a bight behind the two shoulder ropes.|
|Pull the working end of your rope through the bight.|
|Pull down with the working end of the rope to secure the knot and then dress it.|
|Bring the rope back up toward the munenawa. Often you can lift the arms some doing this |
but again do so with caution. Some people can't hold that position long or it could cause discomfort.
|Pull the rope behind the line coming down from the munenawa.|
|Redirect the rope back toward you.|
|Bring the rope back up behind the wrists.|
|Split the two halves of the rope on either side of the stem coming down.|
|Finish with a square knot. Right over left then left over right.|
|This is how it should look when completed.|
