Yukimura Ryu Online Class

Yukimura Ryu Online Class



Experience Level: Intermediate
Prerequisites: single column tie, basic frictions
Newaza, literally translated means “non-standing techniques”. Rope Bondage restricted to the floor, i.e. on a mattress or else, can be a very special way of experiencing ropes. The grand master Yukimura Haruki Sensei elaborated this style over the last 4 decades and established a system that enables students to learn his very unique style. Various techniques and a special handling of the human body are needed to increase the pleasure of tying on the floor. In this class, the participants learn how to use leverages and how to position their partner in certain ways with the use of ropes.

Barkas & Addie Bio

Barkas and Addie are Vancouver-based rope educators who teach and perform world-wide. Their style is characterized by a focus on the process, interaction, and emotion of a rope scene. Together they run TheSpace2, Vancouver’s first dedicated rope space.

Barkas is a bondage educator, writer, and researcher. He has developed the “Interview Metaphor” as a way of understanding rope bondage and placing focus on the person in ropes, “Ranboo” which is a highly dynamic and stormy way of doing and thinking Kinbaku, as well as the “City of Kinbaku”. In 2015, Yukimura Haruki gave Barkas the name Haru zuyu and permission to teach Yukimura Ryu.

Addie is a switch and self-suspension enthusiast. She organizes regular workshops on dynamic self-suspension and versatile education both, for beginners and technically advanced. When co-teaching she focuses on bottoming information and discourse.
