Nicolas as been practicing ropes for more than 20 years. His works come from his study of Japanese Kinbaku/Shibari as well as from his different body practices : Aikido, Thai Massage, Contact-improvisation, System A.
He lived in Japan for 4 years, where he met his master Arisue Go.
He also had studied with Kinoko, Ottonawa, Kazami ranki, Felix Rucker, Shadow, Pedro, Petter Amalion… and did many workshop/exchange with other presenter.
His style is generally describeb as minimalist & organic while in Motion.
After seeing shibari pictures on the internet during years, Vergas decided to try as soon as he heard about a new place to practice in Brussels.
It is in February 2015 he joined for his first jam and discovered the Yoroi ryu.
He felt in love with the paradox of this Art: Chaotic but Safe and Precise, Constraining but Dynamic, Public but Intimist, Control of the other but Control of yourself.
Mostly rigger, Vergas was tied a few times to understand this dynamic from both sides of the ropes and to exchange a different way with some of his partners.

Nobuyoshis Araki’s Pictures led me to my first Shibari Jam at Yoroi’s in 2016
I’ve been a weekly practicioner since then.
Doing ropes for me is so rich I sometimes end up not going forward, confused by the possibilities,
but if I had to pick 3 notions essential to my ropes they would be:
Expression, authenticity, and dance.
I’ve been active in the dojo since 2017 as a model, but I do enjoy tying ppl from time to time. I do like ropes because I see them as a personal challenge and a way to grow and learn.
I’m very glad to be a part of the team and help develop that wonderful space.

It’s been three or four years that i practice at Yoroï-dojo. I really like the atmosphere and the way of Yoroï ryu, that others disciplines as contact dance, martial art(…) can be use in our practice.
Active Member since 2014
Deborah Sarura has been a rope model, performer, presenter and rigger since 2014. . She put in her practice 25 years of horse riding, which she has praticed at a competition and professional level, s well as 10 years of studying physical training.
She sees ropes as a way to explore her body and her emotional management. Life has challenged her to explore modelling further than just strength and pain endurance. She has therefore developed an active way of modelling, both physically and mentally as a way to offer more possibilities to her rigger.
Active modelling enables her to fully take part in the dialogue of ropes, and has played a major role in the development of Dance with Ropes.
It’s not there anymore 🙁
But no leaving form will replace him.
If you like to know, he is back in countryside having a pure not consent relationship with a mouse, some dogs to discipline and some complex relationship with other cats.
If you are looking for the one in charge, it’s not him, far too lazy for that. But if if you would like to meet the Boss, don’t look any further, you got him.
He may enjoy watching you play, especially if one of you is suffering or struggling : life is more enjoyable with some intense interaction. He may also ask for your attention. But please if you play with him never forget to be soft and nice with him, it’s the Boss!
