Register now for the LRA-Chicago Rope Intensive on July 8

CHICAGO — July is truly a rope lover’s paradise in Chicago!

Don’t miss this special 4-hour intensive with two of the most experienced and fun presenters in the US rope scene!  This hands-on, interactive intensive will be customized for all levels of riggers and is only $30 per attendee. You do not have to be a member of LRA to register for this intensive, but your registration will include entry into our member’s only Rope Play Party at 8pm on July 8th as well.

RopeRaiden and Twisted Phoenix will present two chest harnesses. For the first tie, they will explore the Akechi Denki version of the 2 and 3 rope takatakote (TK). This format will be more of a hands on rope lab so you can learn, refine or perfect this gote chest harness. We will give you some tips about how to keep proper tension as well as some secrets on how to remember the steps. We will also cover safety as well as some tips for the bottoms to help increase the endurance of this often challenging upper body tie.

For the second tie, we will be introducing a newer (to the US) chest harness which is a hojo inspired hishi (diamond) tie. This harness is not as stressful on the bottom’s shoulders but is a beautiful and stable upper body harness that can be used for floor work or suspension.

This class is for all levels. Rope bottoms should be able to have enough flexibility to maintain a behind the arms positions for lengthy periods of time. Bring a minimum of 3-4 bundles (8 meters/30ft length) of rope.
