We are very happy to have Murasaki san, Iroha san, and Alice san visiting next month from Tokyo. We are offering a wide range of opportunities to meet and learn from these amazing women.
Our events start with a Night Celebrating the Life and Work of Akechi Denki with Alice Liddell. Alice not only knew Akechi Denki, but also has done extensive research on the history of kinbaku in Japan and has a deep understanding of his place in the history of Japanese rope. She will be bringing extremely rare footage (some never seen before) of Akechi Denki’s performance.
We will also be making a very special video available for purchase at the event.
Thursday, our week continues with our first Murasaki Seminar: Advanced Yukimura Concepts. This is an intimate evening with Murasaki and Iroha, discussing many of the finer and more sophisticated elements of Yukimura’s teaching. This seminar is a rare opportunity to gain a deeper and rich understanding of Yukimura’s teaching from someone who had the opportunity to study with him closely as one of the first students of Yukimura Ryuu.
Friday, we are offering our second Murasaki Seminar: Tying Men. This demo and discussion will focus on techniques for tying the male body. As a long time professional mistress in Tokyo, Murasaki san has developed techniques that allow her to create amazing rope bondage scene that focus on the male body and which overcome difficulties women often have tying larger partners.
Saturday and Sunday, LA Rope and Devil Mask Society will be hosting a unique two day Yukimura Intensive with Murasaki and Iroha. In addition to 9 hours of hands on instruction, Sunday will also feature an afternoon photo session and workshop, focused on using Yukimura style ties to create beautiful images. Participants will be able to tie and shoot their partners with the assistance of Murasaki san and Iroha san giving guidance on ties and poses.
During the week, Murasaki will also be available for private lessons as well as professional sessions. Please contact us at [email protected] to schedule lessons or a session.
