Description: It seems the box tie is almost a default tie for suspension these days. But there is a whole world of upper body ties out there to explore. In this workshop we will learn Japanese-style upper body ties other than the box tie which are suitable for suspension. The workshop is 2.5 hours in length and targeted towards intermediate skill level and above. The class is mostly floor work based, however optional partial and full suspension options will be available for those with more advanced skill sets.

Materials Used: Riggers/Tops should bring at least 4 ropes and their suspension rig if they want to carry through to suspension. 

Class cap: 10 tying pairs- 
Don't have a partner? Come to the Meet & Greet on 4/10 @ 7 PM! 

Note: Auditing will NOT be available at this class

About the Presenter: 


Pedro’s decade-plus obsession with rope started in November 2003 in Tokyo. In 2004, a new journey began when he took classes with Nawashi Akechi Denki Sensei. After the Sensei’s death in 2005, he continued to study with Nawashi Kanna - both of whom remain strong influences on his style today. He frequently travels to Japan to keep alive his passion for rope, studies, and research. This amazing odyssey in kinbaku has allowed him to learn from many great people, such as Yukimura Haruki, Nureki Chimuo, Naka Akira, Randa Mai, Miura Takumi, Hajime Kinoko, Naka Akira, and many others.

Over the years he has performed mainly in Portugal, but also has made appearances across Europe, U.S., and Japan. He has been teaching for several years now across Europe, North America, and Australia.
