Please join us next time for another chapter in the exciting world of Kinbaku and art.
Besides offering Zoom® lessons to our continuing Los Angeles students, we've been holding virtual classes with students across the US and around the world (South America, Canada, Israel, the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Australia, and Germany to name a few). Also, we've held monthly workshops in the virtual world of Second Live® that coincide with changing shows at our virtual art gallery. 

Over the last few months we’ve seen that several BDSM clubs and personalities have begun to do the occasional group activities such as parties and classes but in our dojo the motto has always been safety first and the last thing we would like is for any of our dear friends to fall ill because of a miscalculation during this very complex time.

This isn’t as strange as it sounds. Several famed Japanese Kinbakushi from times past (I’m thinking particularly of Akechi Denki Sensei) sometimes did these creative exercises as art projects and received a great deal of acclaim. 

A Long Wait.
And I was flattered to be recorded on Zoom for an interview to be included in the upcoming documentary by acclaimed London-based Parisian film director, Amélie Ravalec. 

They’re a great way to keep the eye creative and the hands nimble when one doesn’t have an available partner. They’re also quite a technical challenge.

Ms. z-element and Mr. Remy K Thane created some wonderful images that we would like to share. They are lovely and inventive examples of Kinbaku-bi (the beauty of Kinbaku art), some asymmetrically abstract in nature and in keeping with the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, some using classical Kinbaku patterns and some which are purely whimsical. Take a look and enjoy!”

Of course, even in times like these, the art of Kinbaku continues, regardless of the obstacles.

It’s been quite a while since our last post. Of course, this has been due to the scourge of the Coronavirus. We’ve all been suffering with the pandemic which has made the practice of Kinbaku so difficult for many of us, especially those who aren’t fortunate enough to have a safe and vaccinated partner. 

Some screen shots of our virtual events.
But that’s not all, …

I was very pleased and surprised with the results. 

Recently, I gave several of my “named” students an exercise, asking them to do creative Kinbaku ties on inanimate objects. 

In fact, two of my students excelled themselves.
