This tutorial concludes the planned 3-part series, 'Tying techniques & rope handling'. However, whilst we have gone more in-dept into this subject than any tutorial before, there is still a wealth of knowledge that we can add. If anything, this is likely to be Season 1 with much more to follow. It is only by putting our techniques under a microscope like this that we have begun to realize that there are numerous nuances that are rarely, if ever, taught. Sometimes one is lucky enough to 'steal them' by watching a sensei at work, sometimes one's fingers simply find them after years of practice.
This main 60 minute part uses two ties, one on the arms and one on the legs, to demonstrate not only the reasons for using single or double column ties on specific parts of the body but also how to construct the ties using only these 'building blocks'. You'll understand how how these ingredients can be used to make your own recipes. You will learn to maintain tension safely without overly tight bondage and handle the rope with maximum efficiency. The latter is essential to communicate, control, convey dominance and maintain flow. The devil is in the detail and Nina shows exceptionally clearly how to use your fingers correctly, create flow with precision and get results.
In addition, there are several supporting videos expanding on specific points.
