Frog ties can be fun individually, and attaching them together offers even more possibilities. Up to four limbs to play with and pull in different directions. Many of the classic ties can be build with a few of limb ties, and you can also create your own.

Combining Chicken Wings
Many ties with both arm folded are classic poses that have names. Depending if the elbows points up or down, pulled front or back, the result will be completely different. Just like with the previous day, it is important to monitor the hands to mitigate the risk of nerve injuries.

Two chicken wings together in the front is often called the t-rex position

Attach two chicken wings together in the back into a tengu shibari, which means demon tie.

Attach two chicken wings pointing up into a bunny ear.

Attach two chicken wings, one pointing up and one pointing down into a teppo shibari, which means riffle tie

Full Body Frog Tie Restriction

Combining two chicken wings and two frog ties on the leg is a great creativity exercise. There are tons of possibilities, sitting, kneeling, lying on the back, side or belly, playing with symmetry and breaking it.

Practice Time!

Set a time limit, how many combinations of frog ties can you find within that period?

Self evaluation checklist:

  • The ties stays in place when pulling on them in different directions
  • How is the blood circulation? Does the foot and/or hands become numb after some time?

Exploration ideas:

  • Try different combination of upper body ties in chicken wings
  • Try different combination of lower body ties in frog ties
  • Turn a symmetry tie into an asymmetric one
  • Explore different position on the ground: sitting, kneeling, lying on the back, the belly or the side
  • Challenge the back in different direction, bending backward, forward, twisting in a torsion
  • Get all four limbs tied up and crawl around the room. Carpet or matted floor is prefered.
