Convergences

We often hear that to establish a relationship with our partner we would have to put aside the technique : the bane that is so-called good communication. As for aesthetics, it is often seen on the sidelines of the rest, reserved for the outside perspective (photography, performance).

How can we overcome this belief that we should sacrifice technical and aesthetic to devote ourselves to the relationship with our partner?

What guides my way of tying today is the following observation:
The three concepts (technical, aesthetic, communication) intermingle and depend on each other. And what is most striking is that everything leads to communication.
Each technical or aesthetic choice is a transmission tool to the rope bottom, an opportunity to create an emotion.

This workshop will be an opportunity to work on several technical and aesthetic concepts and to explore how, depending on their particularities, they contribute to create communication.

Naka Style : Heritage
Trigoly

“Naka style: Heritage” is a series of workshops dedicated to Naka ryu.

Akira Naka (born in 1969) , is today one of the most famous kinbakushi in the world. “He became aware of the world of Japanese bondage at the age of 30, when he discovered a study course (commonly called ‘Kinbiken’) of the great master Chimuo Nureki. From the first moment he observed the bondage master at work, he found himself drawn deeper and deeper into the fascinating sensuality until he had an epiphany – “This is what I want to dedicate my life to.” (Naka Akira’s of1icial website)
His style became known in the West in 2013. Naka Akira then began traveling to perform and teach around the globe. Naka Ryu has become one of the most popular styles in the world. Many riggers are inspired by his work.

Topics :
These workshops will focus on understanding the roots of Naka Akira’s style. What were his own influences? What are the technical and aesthetic particularities of his style? During theses days, we will try to stick as close as possible to what Naka Akira does in order to understand the issues.
I would like to give you the best of what I have learned from watching him tie, discussing with him and let you glimpse the personality of this man and his ropes. We will talk about his freestyle way of looking at kinbaku and his philosophy and will study inconic ties and shapes.

Naka style : Heritage 3 by Docvale

Hashira : Partial suspension

Hashira in Japanese means vertical beam. Traditional Japanese houses are built with wooden posts and beams. Some of the partitions are sliding doors, so when they are opened the beam become usable.

Directly linked to the imagination of videos and photos of Kinbaku made in these traditional houses, Hashira Shibari has become a specific way of practising Kinbaku.

Whether semi-suspended or suspended, technique and aesthetics on a hashira are very specific. From the point of view of sensations and emotions, it’s also a very special experience for people who are tied up.

In this workshop, we’ll talk about :
– how to create an attachment point on a vertical beam,
– the specific safety requirements for tying on a hashira,
– aesthetic research and techniques used,
– the sensations for the person being tied.

We’ll be practising in partial suspension, or even ground-level suspension for the more advanced participants.
