More bondage workshops!

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 10.40.07 PM

Today’s guest post is by EricJ, the martial artist who is offering the first of two bondage workshops this Saturday based on the arresting arts of ancient Japan.

Again I have the honor of offering a workshop for the FSPC! My two recent workshops on Senjoyo Hojojutsu were very successful in that in both workshops I had a great group of very interested folks who really took hold of the material offered and shined with it. To them all I offer my gratitude!

This time around I am offering a departure from the brusque and rugged ties of battlefield hojojutsu and will here be introducing participants to the intriguing mysteries of quick-release Torinawajutsu – a strict and effective shibari that looks great, ties briskly, and comes off the body in one long tug of the rope leaving the bottom going “Woah!” and the Top going “Yeah!”

Come join in on the fun!

This workshop, Chain Reaction – part 1, will introduce fundamental principles and core ties and part two (held May 16) will develop these skills into beautiful thematic variations. Tickets are $25 (solo) and $45 (duo) in advance via StrangerTickets.com, or $30 each at the door.
