Over the years, numerous rope lovers from around the world have benefited from private tuition at the Osada-ryu Honbu Dojo (長田流本部道場) in Tokyo.
While on the surface Shibari/Kinbaku may appear an awfully complicated craft to master, the individual techniques can actually be broken down into distinct building blocks.
To this end students are essentially taught Osada-ryu; hands-on tying techniques drawn from established Kinbaku dynasties.

Please note that all tuition/training in Japan is on a one-on-one basis.
