One Week-End to Start

How to start ? How to integrate the group of study ? This tuition is designed to help people to start study with us.

Since more than 10 years, after I came back from Tokyo, I have been helping people to learn Kinbaku, including a lot of international presenters. From my experience, I do consider that the beginning is the more important period. This tuition has been created to help new-commers. In this week-end, I will invite you inside my art and research. Sharing my personal experience and mistakes with you are my main tools to develop together.

All of this will be based on human interactions and the way we share time and space together, more than any visual result.

Program :

  • Basic knot (one is enough ) and frictions;
  • Rope and Body Manipulation (our style basics);
  • One Rope pattern : Enzo, Gyaku Ashi;
  • Two ropes pattern : Gote (also call Box tied//Takate Gote…) // Mae (hand in the front);
  • How to play and evolve from this.
  • Security Guideline (how to manage risk and be ready for everything – our philosophy);

How the study is organized ?

On the global point of view : First, we wake up the body, then we add rope to wake up the rope-body contact, and then we jump into the main part of the study. I try to finish with a creative exercise which summarize the tuition. And, of course, there is time for breaks. There is also time in the beginning and at the end of the course to socialize.

On each exercise/proposition : Mainly, the educator shows an exercise and comment on important points. The student tries to reproduce it after. Questions are welcome between the demonstration and the practice and you can ask for help through the practice, both for security as for technical point/inspiration/validation.

On a long term : If you are local, please start by “One day to start”.  If you feel you have a lot of experience, private tuition might work. After, the weekly Group Tuition is the best to steadily improve. Starting with Pattern Base or One rope and Free Rope Base, 6 sessions is the minimum to understand the patterns and their logic. After, you can study Semi-Suspension and Classical Play, which offers an endless study and reflection. One year and somewhere between 20 and 30 weekly Group Tuition is the great minimum to start Suspension Basic and play. Two years and a very committed practice are the minimal pre-requisites to attend Season/Research and master class Workshops.

Fast and flashy results are not what we are looking for. Commitment and deep research are our goals.
