Red Rigger Rope School Stream 1 – Strong Foundations: Basics and Beyond




Red Rigger Rope School classes are suspended until further notice.

We will be re-evaluating this position as the pandemic develops and recommended guidelines change.

Watch this space for updates.

We have also implemented some temporary but mandatory protocols for when classes can resume –

  1. Any students choosing to continue classes will need to msg me on the day of the class to confirm attendance as spaces will be limited.
  2. Do not come to class if you show any symptoms, have recently travelled overseas, have a compromised immune system, work in a high risk environment or have come into contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient.
  3. Students must wash hands before and after class and during any breaks.
  4. Please use the hand sanitiser provided in the rope studio and the hand wash facilities and paper towels in the bathroom.
  5. We understand that there will still be the occasional cough or sneeze due to hay fever and the like.
    Use a tissue or your elbow please and follow up with a thorough hand wash and/or sanitiser.
  6. Refrain from touching and being in close proximity to other students. No handshakes or hugs please and we have plenty of space, so spread out!
    Why not get creative with a greeting from a distance?
  7. I will not be providing hands-on help during classes, unless there is a safety issue that requires me to step in.
  8. Please wipe down your area after use, with the soapy water and Viraclean provided.
    We will also be cleaning and sanitising common areas and hard surfaces more frequently.

Red Rigger Rope School will do private catch-up lessons or small group classes, at no extra charge, after the pandemic, for anyone who will miss the last classes of this term.

Stay safe and soapy!

“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.”
