Kinbaku | Semenawa Study Group

With this regular evening class we invite our most advanced students to continue their research in Seme-nawa under our guidance. On the basis of the what has been learned up to this point, we start to explore a more free space of personal expression in ropes.

On each evening we will share our “research” with you and set an impulse for the group. You can then adapt and implement this directly for you. Of course you can also influence what exactly we do with your topics and questions.

This requires a lot of routine and good communication between the partners. We address flow and dynamics, but also more advanced ideas how to develop a “scene.” We show elements and principles of the Kinbaku that we tie “for us.” In doing so we pick up positions from the “Water” or “Fire” Elements, and create new versions or develop paths of transformation between them. As a result you will become more free and creative in your bondage whilst creating images that are aesthetically reminiscent of calligraphy or ikebana.

Who is it for?

This workshop is for advanced students of our style – on invitation only.

In order to master the element of air, both partners should have developed a safe routine in joint tying in our style and be able to fluidly manage even more complex suspensions. Advanced students and changers from other styles are welcome, but need to write an application.
