Kinbaku 101 is an intensive seminar designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of kinbaku.  We cover basics, including types of rope and safety as well as a series of hands on ties, providing a set of skills that will allow students to construct a full rope scene with the partner using authentic and safe Japanese shibari.

The class will combine the psychological and emotional elements of connection and communication, in addition to providing hands on instruction.

We will cover basic hand ties, the Japanese box tie (takate kote), legs ties, and how to put them all together to allow students to create a number of different rope scenes using kinbaku findamentals.
