BudoucíAn exploring approach to a breathtaking tie (Michael Ropeknight)

  • 9.6.2021
    20:00 - 22:00

Workshop will be rescheduled to new dates in summer 2021. The date stated above is not confirmed yet, just a placeholder. Participants will be contacted by email.

This is not a regular Wednesday workshop. As Michael Ropeknight will be in Prague, let’s take the chance to learn something new from him…

Most of us want to “take our models breath away” … to leave her/him/it breathless.

This workshop is about the different breathing spaces of the body – and how to use more and more rope to restrict them to make the tie a challenge.
We use a flexible basic pattern everyone can chose and apply more and more tension to communicate during the whole tie.

Level: This workshop is suitable for all levels from “advanced beginner” to advanced. You should be able to tie a basic pattern like TK or other with hands in back.

About Michael Ropeknight

Michael Ropeknight ties with rope since his teens and has later on been able to experience different styles of Shibari on various journeys to Japan. He studied with several well-known japanese and western Bakushiand became an official student of Osada Steve in 2012. Osada Steve was also the one who introduced him early on to Yukimura Haruki Sensei as he felt their way of communication is quite similar.
Both masters describe his emotional empathy and his use of energetic components (Ki) as extraordinary. Not only because of these skills, each of them has shown him the great honor to teach their styles as an official instructor.
Ropeknight combines in a very undogmatic way the kinbaku schools of Yukimura-Ryu and Osada-Ryu. By approaching his model in his creative and powerful, yet calm and deeply emotional way, he gives these styles an independent touch.
As the owner of the Fourelements Kinbaku Lounge (www.fourelements.de.com), he regularly organizes events for beginner to advanced level since 2014 and is travelling to teach in workshops and private lessons.
