A better way to learn shibari suspension
There’s a new and different way to learn to suspend creatively. The ShibariClasses ‘Suspension: Mega-bundle’ complete online shibari suspension course by Bruce Esinem and Nina Russ for only $25 per month. The good news is that, with a single low monthly subscription, you can now access tutorials covering all the core suspension ties, our 12-part ‘Suspension Techniques’ course and two additional suspension tutorials, ‘Esinem teppozuri (rifle carry)’ and ‘Exploring yoko zuri to ebi’.
It’s our ingredients-based method, which you might already have encountered is our other tutorials. This approach applies equally to suspension by making the core ties ingredients in suspensions. You will learn how these can be mixed and matched. In this way, you will learn how to vary your suspensions creatively, rather than robotically duplicate set ‘recipes’.
And it’s very different from the usual tutorials because it makes learning easy, by teaching you how these ingredients are used, rather than just confronting you with a bewildering selection of suspensions. And as you’ll see, it will make seemingly complex suspensions very intuitive, enabling you to tie more safely and accelerate your learning.
Best part of all, our structured approach means you won’t be left wondering where to start. We take you from zero to hero.
So, if you want to understand shibari suspension and learn to tie creatively, this is the course for you.
Tie like a pro
Many of the techniques we reveal will also improve your flow and speed by allowing you to work efficiently. Smooth, confident tying creates trust by demonstrating competence and exudes dominance, unlike inexpert fumbling.
If you have never experienced a tutorial of this sort, you probably have no idea what you and you partner are missing.
Making sense of the maze
There are so many ways to learn. It’s confusing so where do you start? Books can teach the steps but fall short on teaching the nuances. You need to see it done. Videos might show you more but where do you start and which are any good? ? If you go to a workshop, is the teacher competent to teach you good technique?
This course offers a solution. We have structured route to guide you from the basics of equipment, ways to practice before going fully airborne, simple and safe ties to hone your skills right the way through to advanced suspensions and transitions.
Our tutorials are based on over 30 years of combined experience of teaching and performing, combined with tuition by Japan’s most acclaimed masters. Thus, you are guaranteed first class instruction.
Our videos are shot in HD with two cameras so you will be sure to catch every detail in the close-up shots where it really matters. In addition, there are also written notes where extra clarification is needed and the opportunity to interact directly with Nina and I to answer your questions.
