"Dancing with the ropes" by Zamil of Kinbaku-Art.com
"and as he finished dancing, she realized she was tied"
You, rope and your partner, you think that this is it? Re-think please. Do you know your body, the way it moves naturally? Do you know how to integrate your natural movements into your style of tying so that it just comes naturally to you?
Do you know how much your ego and set goals interfere with your ability to get the most out of your rope sessions?
The key to the essence of rope is never the technique, never the rope and never your own goal.
