One-off purchase price for lifetime access

Big savings

There is a lot of content, covered in great detail; so we want you to take your time and absorb it properly. There's no time pressure, so you can work at your own pace and can always refer back to the tutorials at any time.

All the key ties

This course bundle contains all the key ties:

  • Nina's hip harness and other variations
  • Foto momo ties (shin to thigh)
  • Akechi Denki style contemporary gote (2 & 3-rope TK)
  • Old-style gote with 3rd and 4th rope variations
  • Hishi (diamond) patterns made easy
  • Upper body ties made easy

Building on the basics

When you have learned the basic 'ingredients' of shibari and wish to progress, the next step is to use them in some classic ties or, to continue the analogy, 'recipes'. In this course, you will not just learn these ties but also which ingredients are used and why; such understanding is essential to developing your own style. This means that you will be able to adapt the ties to the person you are tying and the situation. The end result being greater competency, safety and creativity. By learning ingredients and how to build with them, you are being taught to fish rather than being merely given one.

Moving to advanced play and suspension

The ties, and principles for constructing them, are key to more advanced floor-work and provide the basis for suspension. All the tutorials give variations on ties so you can see different ways of achieving the same purpose and how ingredients can be varied or interchanged. This will help you create you own style and way of communicating with your partner, rather than just unexcitingly 'painting by numbers'.

If you plan to progress to suspension, it is essential to be able to construct safe and sound base ties, as getting these wrong can be dangerous. Watching a 10 minute video demo or half-remembered class won't do.As I like to say, it is not good enough for something to look like a plane, it needs to fly like one too. This is especially true of the gote (aka TK), which I constantly see poorly tied. This bundle includes very detailed tutorials, with precise instructions, on the original and modern forms of the TK with several variations. Likewise, we also cover various versions other key base suspension ties such as futo momo and hip-harness thus providing you with a very solid foundation which will prepare you well for progressing.

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.
