FREE: Is length important?

Revolutionise your tying by fine tuning your rope lengths and learning one simple technique.

Less is more

In this tutorial, you will see the difference in tying with short ropes and long ropes. If you are using longer ropes, you might be surprised to learn that this can be very counter-productive. In this video, I have up-sized my model from diminutive Sophie to a larger frame so you can see that less can be more when it comes to rope length.

Fine tuning

As we have all discovered, rope only comes in two lengths: just a bit too short and way too long. Whilst nobody can guarantee a specific length will work for all situations, I will show you how to work out a length that will be right a lot more often.

Speed and efficiency

Whist shibari is all about efficiency, flow and speed will often be a by-product. The attributes all contribute to demonstrating your competence and with that your dominance. Rope length is a vital part of achieving this and so is the amount of rope you have to move to tie and untie. You will learn one simple technique that will massively reduce this and improve your flow.

Transform your tying

There's nothing hard to learn or that requires any real practice in this tutorial and it will only take a few minutes of your time. However, if you are not using the right ropes lengths and using this effort saving trick, I guarantee your handling, speed and flow will be transformed. There's nothing to lose, just some bad habits.

Esinem is a Japanese style bondage (shibari/kinbaku) artist who regularly appears at UK and international events such as Pride, Torture Garden, Erotica, Rubber Ball, Wasteland, Boundcon, Nuit Demonia and recently represented the UK at Japan's first international kinbaku event, Toubaku. He is also known for his teaching both in the UK and internationally and as co-organiser of the London Festival of the Art of Japanese Bondage and BOUND, Europe's premier monthly shibari event.

Over the last few years, he has been improving his skills in Japan with the help some of their best known and respected kinbakushi, Arisue Go, Osada Steve, Kinoko Hajime, Kazami Ranki and, grand master of newaza, Yukimura Haruki. Whilst drawing from classical methods, his style is distinctive and epitomizes the art of communicating with rope, often departing from the typical serenity of shibari shows and flying in the face of tradition to produce some striking and unusual performances.

In addition, he has worked on various videos, e.g. Primal Scream's 2013, artistic collaborations and photo shoots both on and off camera. He has been involved in projects providing inspiration for Tom Ford's 2013 collection and, Raqib Shaw, an acclaimed artist who has exhibited at the Tate, Metropolitan and White Cube galleries.

He contributed to Rope, Bondage & Power, edited by Lee Harrington and is currently involved with a number of documentaries on kinbaku. He is also author of the first English language tutorial DVDs: 'Japanese Rope Bondage: Tying people, not parcels' .
