Welcome to LA Rope

LA Rope teaches shibari (Japanese erotic rope bondage) in the style of the late Grandmaster Yukimura Haruki. Our dojo and instructor is licensed to teach Yukimura Ryuu, one of only roughly a dozen students to hold an official teaching license (menkyo). Our classes focus on communication and connection between partners and we welcome all levels of experience, particular those with little or no experience with rope.
