“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.”
