**This stream is a pre-requisite for further training in the Red Rigger Rope School, as you will learn Namaiki’s unique chest, hip and thigh harnesses (including the Look! Not a TK series) and other content that is required for stream progression.**
To qualify for this stream, you must either have completed Term 1 or be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the “Strong Foundations – Basics and Beyond” content in a private lesson.
Held every Monday evening, 7:30pm – 9:30pm from February 3rd – April 20th with Graduation on the 27th April.
Each class ticket or full term pass is valid for 2 participants and is non-refundable except under extreme circumstance.
You may choose to attend as few or as many classes as you like but it is highly recommended that you attend all of the classes in each term for maximum benefit.
Stream 2 (12 x 2hr classes) will include, but is not limited to –
* The Anatomy of Rope Bondage – a continuation and expansion on rope bottoming content and body mechanics plus a deeper look into the way our flesh may be expected to behave under the duress of rope bondage.
* Harnesses – Hands behind, hands-in-front and hands free options plus hip harnesses, and variations on leg binds, including futomomos.
* Tying with Intent
* Rope handling and tensions
* Transitions on the ground
These classes are intensive and exhaustive; designed to help you understand the WHY as well as the HOW.
Class content may vary slightly and will be tailored to the participants.
Participants are highly encouraged to take notes and photos during classes and to continue to train outside of classes.
Please bring along a camera/camera phone, a notepad and pen, a blindfold, a min. of 5 hanks of rope (7-8m long each), a safety cutter and a rope partner.
House rope and safety cutters are available to borrow but you should be getting your own by this point.
“Hi! I’m Angela, aka. Namaiki, and I’ll be your Bondage Instructor for Red Rigger Rope School.
I’m passionate about rope bondage and have devoted the past 6 years to learning and honing my skills, with the help of some incredible people, on either end of the rope.
I have admired and learnt from many of the best local and interstate bondage presenters and selected international rope superstars.
I’ve grown with and thanks to my rope partners over the years and have developed forms and sequences to suit their preferences and mine, while favouring flow, pace, movement and engagement.
My style has been developed from a rope switch’s perspective and with a preference for the Japanese aesthetic, but definitely with western influence (I’m looking at you Somerville Bowline).
I’m also looking forwards to sharing my love of rope with you and helping you on your bondage journey, wherever that leads you.”
