The Workshop

Level: Beginner / strong beginner
Prerequisite:
  rigger: single column ties, double column ties and frictions are your bread and butter (these will not be explained anymore).
  model: you are able to recognize and communicate good/bad bodily sensations. .

This full-day workshop aims to equip you with the essential skills and knowledge to practice safe, sane, and consensual kinbaku. Our goal is to help you create a safe and shared experience that will empower you to continue applying what you’ve learned once you return home.

The gote is a classic element of traditional Japanese bondage, known as kinbaku. Since RopeMarks adheres to and teaches this tradition, we prioritize imparting the techniques and knowledge required for tying your model’s arms behind their back in the gote style. There’s no single “correct” gote; the best one is the one that suits your model. We believe almost everyone can be comfortable in a gote-based tie.

During this workshop, you’ll be tying on a carabiner/ring. There are various ways to tie off uplines, but which method do you choose and when? We will guide you through several exercises to help you understand these choices.

Next, we’ll apply the knowledge of the gote and uplines to three floor ties, progressively making them more intricate. Along the way, we’ll introduce you to a variety of smaller ties for added fun.

By the end of this workshop, both riggers and rope models will have advanced to a solid beginner/intermediate skill level.

Recommended precursor workshop is our Ryu #0, kinbaku foundations workshop.
Recommended follow up workshop is our Ryu #2, Kinbaku workshop, suspensions on single point.

Program

Topics that we will address are:

  • Gote bootcamp
  • Uplines
  • Three full body gote-based ties with uplines
  • A handful of smaller ties to have fun with during your suspensions
  • Anatomy & safety

Presenters

Who’s RopeMarks?

RopeMarks, also known as Bob Roos, is a Dutch rope artist who specializes in Japanese rope bondage, also known as shibari or kinbaku. Professionally he began studying and perfecting his craft in 1999, under the lineage of the late Akechi Denki (明智伝鬼) and Naka Akira (奈加あきら) in Japan. While RopeMarks’ work reflects the traditional techniques taught by these leading kinbakushi, he has also developed his own unique and distinct style.

RopeMarks is widely recognized as the foremost Dutch expert in Japanese rope bondage, and is highly respected in the global kinbaku community. He has taught workshops and classes around the world including, but not limited to, Europe, the United States, Russia and Japan. Using the name RopeMarks Ryū he provides real, fun, hands-on, courses, classes, lessons and workshops in Japanese rope bondage worldwide.

Who’s Spring?

Spring is an enthusiastic Dutch rope bunny who loves intensity in every possible way.

Already at a young age Spring had kinky and BDSM fantasies that she started exploring in 2011. Rope fascinated her from the beginning and after her first experience she was hooked. She started experimenting with rope and BDSM in her private life and gradually moved towards experimenting and modeling in front of the the camera, satisfying her exhibitionistic streak.

As a rope bunny, Spring loves being seriously challenged. She experiences (slow) suffering as a sexy and sensual way to a deeper connection in which she can totally surrender. Apart from the physical interaction, she loves the impact of nonverbal communication.
