Suspension techniques: Part I

The most in-depth Japanese bondage suspension tutorials ever

Are you wondering where to learn suspension or simply further your knowledge? In that case, this course if for you. Of course, it goes without saying, that you should already have a good understanding of the base ties and nerve paths but we have other tutorials covering those subjects.

Ideally, you should invest in many hours of 1-2-1 hands on expert tuition to suspend competently but, unfortunately, time, distance and money often present an almost insurmountable obstacle. This means wasting time finding the wheat amongst the chaff of the internet or attending classes of unknown quality. Only very few of us realise the dream of personal tutoring by Japanese masters. The good news is that this course condenses what Nina and I have learned from years of experience and tuition by, not just one, Japanese sensei but from many. To gain our experience has involved travelling around the world, taken thousands of hours and cost more money than I care to calculate.

As you might know, I originally planned to release a second DVD set, 'Ground to AIr', which was to cover suspension techniques. In fact, we shot a lot of content for this project which has been combined with new and existing material to bring you this far more comprehensive course. This series will go into more depth than anything ever produced on video or in books.

Unlike attending a workshop, you can review every step whenever and where ever you wish as many times as you need. How many times have you been to a class and then forgotten some crucial step of the tie by the time you got home? Then, wasted hours practicing your mistakes? Never be in doubt again or worry about looking a fool: Here's an instructor who will repeat things as much as you want by just hitting replay! Not only that but we high-light the key information, so you don't have to pan for the nuggets of gold.

In the first part, we look at all the pro's and con's of suspension. As it's an advanced subject, it will be broken down into manageable sections. You might be nervous about causing injury and rightly so as there are many traps for the unwary, so we begin with a very comprehensive safety section. Most importantly, you will be shown how to avoid trouble in the first place.

You'll discover why rope jams and a simple trick to instantly free your rope. We demonstrate some of the problems you might encounter getting somebody down in an emergency and give you an easy rule to follow.

Whilst the first part is not a suspension 'how to', we use a classic side suspension as an example. It's not designed for you to replicate at this stage, although, many points are high-lighted to reinforce the in-depth tutorials that will follow. You'll pick up plenty of tips for later on.

Esinem

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 SteveKinoko, HajimeKazami 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' .

Nina Russ

Nina Russ is a London based, shibari performer, rope artist and educator. She became student of Esinem in 2011 and their collaboration gave birth to BOUND shibari night (2012) and ShibariClasses (2015). She had also the fortune to participate at workshops with different Japanese shibari masters, like: Kazami Ranki, Yukimura Haruki, Kinoko Hajime.
She has performed internationally, most notably at the London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage and RopeFest in St.Petersburg. In addition, she participates in numerous artistic, fashion collaborations and local performances. Her passion for rope has lead her on a route of discovery of concepts, philosophy, aesthetics and benefits behind this Japanese discipline.
She sees shibari as an art form which creates deep connection between the participants and also aids personal development. Due to its martial arts roots, it brings self-discipline, efficiency, effectiveness and, thus, growth in confidence and awareness. She believes these skills allow a greater focus on the most important aspects: you, your partner and your shared experience.
Rope is simply a means of communication. She wants you to discover through her tying, the language of rope, which speaks directly to the mind and body.
