Top & Bottom Focused


In this class we will begin with the Gote as developed by Naka Akira. We will then continue to add rope, layering and escalating intensity to further explore the artful building of rope torture, otherwise known as semenawa. Learning to pay close attention to detail of rope technique, body language, facial expression, and breathing patterns of the bottom will become indicators of escalation as well as descent.


A solid 3 rope Gote and experience in transitional suspension; bottoms should have experience in static suspensions, at a minimum Accoutrement: A suspension worthy kit Instructor needs: Single suspension point
