Workshop Semenawa – The beauty of suffering

What is the difference between pain and sufference? How do they effect the body and the mind of a rope bottom, as well as the final aesthetics of the tie? What are the elements that contribute to create the traditional Japanese dramatic look? How can we avoid our models to look like acrobats and rather recreate that swoon typical of old fashion Semenawa kinbaku sessions?

Through the use of timing, intention, progression and non technical lines we will recreate the dramatic mood of a traditional Kinbaku session as well as it’s aesthetics. We will understand the true meaning of Semenawa and will be able to appreciate the it’s beauty, the beauty of sufference, the beauty of the tied person rather than that of the rope.
