Stream 3 will see us building upon our harness work from Stream 2 and starting our suspension journey with partials. A partial suspension, by Red Rigger standards, requires no less than half the body weight still on the floor.
This is a weekly class for returning Red Rigger Rope School students and you must have completed Streams 1 and 2 or have taken private lessons covering the required content, before you can enroll in these classes.
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.
Individual classes are $40 and a full term of 12 classes + Graduation is $420
Each individual class and full term pass is valid for 2 participants and is non-refundable except under extreme circumstance.
The full 5 streams of Red Rigger Rope School will teach you Namaiki’s currently preferred harnesses, forms, sequences and techniques, all the way from beginners to advanced suspension.
Stream 3 (12 x 1.5hr classes) will include but is not limited to –
- Beginning partial suspensions, line locking, line management, risk awareness and mitigation, etc.
- Partial suspensions forms and sequences
- Continuation of harnesses
- Continuation of tension control and tying with intent
- Exploring body mechanics in partial suspension
- Practical exercises on rope and equipment care and maintenance
- Risk awareness, assessment and mitigation for partial suspensions
- Scening with partial suspension/tying with intent – it’s not just What you tie but How and Why you tie it
Class content may vary slightly, depending on 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 ring or carabiners and a min. 5 hanks of rope (7-8m each preferred), a safety cutter and a rope partner.
“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.”
