We are a group of kinbaku enthusiasts focused on education for advancement of the art. We prioritize information based on primary source material and first-hand instruction.
Listen to our introductory conversation on Graydancer's Ropecast.
The group was started in 2012 in Los Angeles, CA, but we now have members and friends spanning the globe. The group has grown exponentially through our local class structure (the various Cells), by hosting visiting international instructors (find some of them in our Links), and by attending and teaching at national conferences and various local rope groups. See where we'll be next on our Calendar or check out our list of Class Offerings by instructor to find out what we can teach you.

The group can be found on Fetlife.
