Intermediate Rope Intensive

Kazami Ranki

Price (per tying pair): 

BOUND Members $125, TIED Members $150, WRAPPED Members $175

Join Kazami Ranki at Studio Friction for a 3 hour workshop on Kazami's Gote and Hip harness. These patterns are known for being robust and solid ties that excel at safety and comfort. This class is an intermediate class that will move into a static suspension.

All students will be expected to have suspension experience and riggers expected to have solid experience in basic up-line management. Participants should be able to tie a chest harness and a hip harness.  As always, everyone is welcome to participate up to their own comfort level or just observe the class.

Riggers will need a full rope kit, rigging plate/gear and a few extra carabiners.

In this class we will cover:

  • Kazami's Gote chest harness
  • Kazami's hip harness
  • Upline attachment methods
  • Static suspension techniques
