Increase your speed, flow, and confidence in your rope bondage play!
Whether you’re an expert or have only taken one rope bondage class, this experience will help to make your rope play more confident, smooth and intuitive.
This class will cover essential skills for fluid, effective and graceful motion in tying. Great flow and speed skills add to dynamic scenes with power emotional and play potential, increases confidence, allows for greater creative thinking and connection with your partner.
After the initial discussion, the students will break into pairs for series of unique timed drills and challenges. These are non-competitive exercises designed to increase your speed and confidence while identifying areas to improve. Everyone will be expected to do the exercises - and each exercize has purspose and philosophy behind it to deepend your play, whether you cast rope, receive rope or enjoy all sides of the rope in your private play.
This method is rooted in theRope Dojo®philosophy - and thus will be presented in a rather uncommon way. Trust the method. It works! A bit of the “wax on, wax off” if you will…
This Rope Dojo Elective is open to those who play at one or both ends of the rope.
You do not have to be a Rope Bondage Dojo graduate to attend. If you’ve not attended, this class will provide excellent foundation for Dojo. If you are a graduate, it’s designed to enhance your effectiveness and build on the core curriculum.
