Sadistic bondage

Do you enjoy pain? This hands-on class explores the possibilities of inflicting pain with ropes in an easy and straightforward way.

Tying in movement

We are used to tying our partners while on the floor, as our rope bottom's stability becomes an easy task and we can usually stay connected just by being close. However, when we stand up, we get stiff and easily disconnected.
Let's start to move, both of us. Our tying can be like a dance – playful, sadistic, or dominant. The choice is yours.
We will work on tying and moving at the same time. You will learn to tie in dynamic ways, move your partner and move together, and how to control his stability, the rope, and the whole tie.

Neck rope

Placing a rope around someone’s neck is a dangerous yet arousing activity. This workshop is mostly about neck rope safety. We explore the human anatomy, risks of using neck rope, and explain the differences between blood and air chokes. You will learn accident prevention techniques by practicing wise neck rope management and watching for body signals. We will also work on some patterns and tips for neck rope play.

Humiliation ties

This workshop explores exposure, shame, embarrassment, and erotic humiliation in helplessness. You will receive hands on experience on exposure, degradation, and objectification ties. We also discuss techniques for creating stronger psychological impacts.

Overpowering with ropes

Overpowering, subjugation, and domination are common erotic fantasies. This workshop will help you introduce them into your rope play.
It is not easy to overpower playful resistance in a sensual and safe manner. Hence, we explore body contact, mild confrontation with your partner, and direct physical domination that does not necessarily require using one’s strength. A rope is like an extension of your arms that helps you overpower, immobilize, and control your rope bottom.
This workshop is not about play-fighting or wrestling. You will not learn how to knock-out your fully resisting partner.

Predicament bondage

Predicament bondage is the art of restraining a person so they are only able to set themselves in limited positions. Each of these positions may be so uncomfortable that the restrained may be forced to shift their weight or position (Wikipedia).
The rest is your fantasy. This hands-on class explores your fantasy and possibilities of predicaments.

Unrestrained tying (tying in movement on the floor)

Are you stiff while tying? Staying in one position for long periods? Does the passivity of your rope bottoms make it worse? Is your rope bottom getting bored? Is your tying dominated by rope instead of you dominating your partner? Do you run out of ideas?
This workshop will change it and integrate movement into your floor work. We will motivate our partners to move in order to overpower them afterwards. Let's free our minds from patterns, and go for spontaneity and improvisation.

Unrestrained suspensions (tying in movement in the air)

Are your suspensions static despite transitioning between positions? Do they look always the same? Do you quickly run out of ideas once your model is in the air? Or even worse do you have to chase after your model while he or she is spinning around?

Discover different way of doing suspensions. Play with your model in the air and use ropes as a versatile tool for play and not just a single-purpose instrument. Learn how to control suspended and moving body. You will explore dynamic way of tying and enjoy spontaneity and improvisation in suspensions.

This workshop is not suitable for people who can get easily dizzy from spinning around.

Water bondage

Water significantly alters the conditions for bondage, such as causing weightlessness. Water also deepens helplessness. Together with underwater breathing restrictions, water evokes a total loss of control.
This workshop will cover safety, various ties suitable for water, buoyancy of the tied person, movement in water, moderate immersion of the whole body, and also some predicaments.

Breath play bondage (without neck rope)

Most people associate breath play with blood and air chokes, rebreather bags, gasmasks, etc. However, the rope is a great tool for playing with your partner’s respiration.
How can you breath play with rope? This class explores the possibilities through hands-on experiments with imposed and restricted breathing. You will learn to sense your partner's breathing. This workshop will cover some ties and rope and body handling tips for breath play.

Bondage for sex

The name of this workshop is self-explanatory. According to the participants’ level, we will examine various ties suitable for sex – from easy and fast ties to intricate positions that will give your partner a hard time while you take advantage of them.

Bondage for sex in the air

Would you like to have sex in suspension for longer than the national average of seven minutes? Are you unable to stay suspended for long or are you unable to bear the discomfort of suspension unless you are tied in a hammock?
We will explore a few elegant and comfortably safe suspension poses for longer airborne time. Ehm, no help with the other part, sorry guys.

Partial and full suspensions

Basics, safety, comfort, concepts, transitions... It is an endless topic for many workshops.

Frictions, knots and other techniques beyond basics

This workshop for intermediate students will help you to understand single and double column ties and basic frictions and knots used in Japanese bondage. You will learn how to do them correctly on the first try. After finishing this workshop, you will have the knowledge necessary to create your own ties by understanding the principles instead of learning patterns by heart.

Strappado (arm-flute) ties

This class is about the total restriction of the arms in arm-flute ties. This workshop will cover some arm-flute patterns that vary in comfort, restriction, and visual aspects.

Takate Kote from A to Z

Takate Kote is the most useful and popular tie. You will not only learn how to tie the three-rope Takate Kote, but you will also fully understand it.

Hojo ties

Hojojutsu is the traditional Japanese martial art of restraining a person with ropes; it usually incorporates a neck rope. As we care for our rope partners more than the Japanese did for their prisoners, we will cover the humanized and safer, yet still very restrictive, ties inspired by hojojutsu.

Hogties in 10 ways

The hogtie is a favourite of many bondage lovers. It is an easy and effective tie. This workshop will explore different variations of this tie, from comfortable hogties to the most strict hogties.

Chair bondage

If you expect to learn how to tie chairs at this workshop, you would be disappointed. You will learn how to tie your partner to a chair and how to be creative with it. Chairs are great for their stability, shape, and their many different options for tie-offs and positions. Moreover, everyone has a chair at home.
We will explain some basic techniques for tying your partner to a chair and help you discover creative positions for play, sex, etc. In the end, we also play with few predicaments. Advanced students will be able to try a suspension with a loaded chair.

Diamond patterns

One of the most visually attractive elements of Japanese bondage is diamond patterns (hishi in Japanese). In this workshop, we will learn some of these ties.

Floor work

Floor work may appear to be easy; however, we often end up in hogties as we run out of ideas very quickly. In addition, body handling and movement on the floor and stability of your rope bottom without semi-suspension can be quite tricky. This workshop will help you to deal with these obstacles and boost your creativity.

Hypno bondage demo

Erotic hypnosis is a powerful tool to create sensations, control your partner, or even get into his/her headspace. We will explain and demonstrate hypnosis, how it can be useful in bondage or erotic play, and where to start learning it.

About Me

I am a bondage teacher and event organizer. I created my first educational website with information on rope bondage in 2000. After ten years of self-education, I met Kinoko Hajime who became my first teacher of Japanese bondage. Afterwards, my tying was shaped by Osada Steve and Kanna; however, Kinoko Ryu is still my first choice for most of my rope partners. A year later, I started teaching regular bondage workshops and have kept this hobby till today. In the meantime, I met two other teachers who influenced me greatly. The first was Yoroi Nicolas who taught me movement, intimacy, and simplicity in ropes. The second and the most influential was Riccardo Wildties. He introduced me to Naka Ryu. The more I study with Riccardo and Naka Akira, the more I fall in love with this style.

In recent years teaching ropes and organizing foreign teachers’ visits has become almost my part-time job. I love to teach topics I am passionate about, such as predicaments and sadistic, overpowering, and dynamic ways of tying, breath play, and many others. I love my job. :-)
