Intro Class at Stormy Leather in SF – October 9th 7:30PM

October 3, 2007 at 4:57 pm (class, general)

I’m teaching a slight variation of my intro class at Stormy Leather in San Francisco, specifically geared to the Twisted Monk Starter Kit that they sell (Stormy Leather is now a subsidiary of JT’s Stockroom, and the change did them good!)

Here’s what they have to say about it…

Who: Mike West
What: Intro to Japanese Rope Bondage
Where: Stormy Leather, 1158 Howard St. in San Francisco
When: Tuesday, October 9th, at 7:30 p.m.
Why: Learn sexy and functional bondage techniques!
How: Admission is $20, rope is available for loan or purchase, and Mike will take care of the rest!

Do you love the look and feel of Japanese rope bondage? Layers of thin rope pressing into skin, asymmetrical poses, decorative wrapping… What does it take to get started? Mike West recommends the amazing Twisted Monk Hemp Rope Starter Kit, now available at Stormy Leather. Together with his Introduction to Japanese Rope Bondage workshop, it will get you well on your way to ties that will enhance your bedroom and dungeon fun.

In this hands-on workshop, Mike will provide you with the basic building blocks that give Japanese bondage its distinctive look; he’ll also explain why these techniques are so well suited to natural fiber rope. Mike will show you how to combine these basic techniques in order to tie an elegant, sexy, and functional hogtie. You’ll also be given the chance to see these same basic components used to tie a subject in full suspension (demonstration only).

There’s no need to have any experience with ropework as Mike will teach you the only two knots you need! Singles, couples and small groups are welcome. Singles must be willing to both tie and be tied, so come prepared to make some new friends…

All attendants will receive 20% off all purchases made between 7:00 p.m. and the class’s start at 7:30, so arrive a little early, do a little shopping, then join us for this fantastic workshop! Email RSVPs (appreciated but not necessary) or questions to

**Please do not bring cotton or synthetic fiber rope; the Twisted Monk hemp rope kits will be available at the discounted rate, and Mike will have extra rope for those in need.
