Generally speaking a master class is a class given to students of a particular discipline by an expert of that discipline. In RopeMarks Ryū a master class is for students of Japanese rope bondage, aka shibari or kinbaku, given by the Dutch leading expert in this field, RopeMarks.

Typically a master class is considered to be one of the most effective means, along with practice, of growing in the development of your skill.

RopeMarks Ryū master classes generally span multiple days. In a small group or privately organised you will work towards a predefined goal or set of goals. Occasionally we organize single day master classes, i.e. ‘mini master classes’. These are specialty classes for a fast introduction of a subject for students already experienced in the necessary related basics.


After completing any of our master classes you will be able to technically- and emotionally safe, execute the bondage's of the specific master class.
