Sobre del evento

WORKSHOP 3 (TORSO) TAKATE KOTE (TK 2) / TORSO HARNESS Class content:  • Review of basic knowledge applied to the Takate Kote and torso harness (hands-free). • Review of the different types of Takate Kote and torso harnesses, and their functionalities. • Safety keys and how to avoid accidents in the harnesses taught. • Review of the anatomy of the Shibari models applying the harnesses taught and how to do shoulder locks for the Takate Kote. • Practical demo of the classic minimalist 2-string Takate Kote (TK 2) and hands-free torso harness developed by Pauline Massimo. • Exercises to make the harnesses taught more practical and efficient.  • How to apply the suspension line to each learned tie.     

Requirements:  • Previous experience is necessary, meeting minimum basic knowledge requirements (check with the organization) or attend the initiation workshop (WORKSHOP 1). • It is not necessary to have or bring ropes. If you have natural material ropes (jute or hemp, please bring them). • In this class it is not possible to change roles due to the reduced time for all the content to be taught. • There is the possibility of attending the class as an individual. The exercises will be done individually. • This type of workshop is focused on one person taking the role of tying and another of being tied, and in the case of individuals as self-tying. • Individual attendees of this workshop will not be able to do some practical exercises, ex: Takate Kote, but they are encouraged to try to make the torso harness as a self-tie if it is of personal interest and to learn about the other possible practical aspects and didactic material theory and demos, as well as adapting the concepts of the Takate Kote as a torso harness.

It is possible to attend this class virtually by Zoom, you will access a link provided once you book and you will passively attend the content of the class, you can ask questions through the chat but your exercises cannot be reviewed during the live classroom.
