Starting in August, LA Rope will be offering a new class of single rope ties in the style of Yukimura Haruki sensei.

This class builds on our two beginner classes (Hands in Front and Hands Behind Ties), but exploring how those basic foundations can be used to create more advanced ties by utilizing these basic constructions and different body positions to develop better communication and intimacy using rope.

The class begins with a refresher on the basic hands in front tie (which we will use for most of the class) and then moves on to three ties that use this as a foundation:  Momo (Peach) Shibari , a one rope Tengu (Demon) tie, and the Kani (Crab) open leg tie.   Finally, we will explore two versions of Yukimura’s open leg tie, the first utilizing the hands in front tie and the second using the hands behind tie (gote).

While no prior experience is required, students will find it helpful to have take either or both of the other two beginner classes.

Beginners always welcome. We have rope to loan for class as well as for purchase. It is recommended you come with a partner. Individuals are welcome but we can not guarantee a tying partner will be available.

Cost: $25 per person, in advance. No tickets at the door. If you are buying as a couple, please order together as this event always sells out and we cannot admit over our capacity once class is full.

Tickets are for this event only and cannot be refunded or exchanged once purchased.
