From Kinoko's website:

 

"Like car driving, kinbaku involves risks which can never be reduced to zero. In order to reduce these risks as much as possible, Ichinawa-kai puts safety first and continuously seeks improvement.

 

Please participate in the classroom and private lessons while keeping that in mind"

Classes that cover the fundamentals of Kinoko style Shibari.

​At Nawa Musubi, we aim to teach the Ichinawa curriculum the same way as its taught in Tokyo. Not only do we emphasis the models beauty in ropes as envisioned by Kinoko, but to do so with their safety as a priority.

 
For absolute Beginners, the prerequisite for attendance is our Introduction to Shibari course, or another similar class such as ones conducted by Evil Girls HQ or Red Rigger.

Please note - Regardless of your skill level, if you choose to attend our Ichinawa-kai, you will still need to start from the beginning.
