Our Instructors

SirKnottyDan (he/him)

For his entire adult life Dan has been teaching in one form or another. He has traveled the world teaching teachers how to deliver explicit, hands-on, direct instructional materials to their students. For over five years he has been teaching rope bondage to students in Southern California. In 2015, he and Renee started All Tied Up San Diego and began delivering their version of rope bondage to the San Diego rope community.

As his name implies . . . he likes rope. He will openly admit that he is still very much a student of rope and is constantly learning and growing himself. He loves that rope takes time. He likes helping people understand the close, intimate, personal connection of rope and see how it helps bring people together. No two ties are ever the same. No two experiences are ever alike. His love for rope comes through in every class he teaches.

Renee (she/her)

Is a complex, quiet, introverted, shy, intellectual, over-thinker, who is very protective, caring and perceptive. It is safe to say that there isn’t a lot she misses in any given situation. She is also a rope bunny and the co-leader of All Tied Up San Diego. She identifies solely as a bottom (person tied up) and enjoys being tied and sharing her experiences in rope. As a bottom she delivers the lecture portion of the Safety and Introduction class, showing the importance of bottom education in rope bondage. It isn’t all about tying someone up, a bottom has much to learn about themselves, their communications, their physiology, and most importantly what they want out of rope bondage.

Together she and Dan have hosted over 300 different rope events and have taught 150 Safety & Introduction Classes to new people just like you. Their passion and joy for rope comes through every time they teach.

What Our Attendees Are Saying About All Tied Up!

"I’ve been attending ATU events for over a year and attended over a dozen of the 201+ class. As a teacher and event planner I’m consistently impressed by the quality of presentation and instruction. The 201+ class is a well-oiled machine that provides material for everyone from (almost) rank beginners to experienced riggers.
The ATU community itself has been incredibly friendly and welcoming, not just at the events but at the munches and around town as well. Honestly couldn’t ask for more." – CJ

"I was interested in learning about rope and the kink / BDSM culture as a beginner, and after searching around I found All Tied Up SD. The intro and safety class was an incredibly comprehensive and comfortable place to begin learning more about rope, BDSM culture, and the chemical effects being tied up can cause in bottoms. All things that I didn’t know beforehand. If you’re looking for a place to jump into rope, or even if you have had practice and want to learn more, I highly recommend checking out All Tied Up classes." – Nikki

"I’m a middle-aged, vanilla-but-curious guy who went to one of their introduction and safety sessions. It was the first kink event I had ever attended.
They did an exemplary job of making things friendly, welcoming, and nonjudgmental. A wide variety of body types attended, and it was very clear that everyone was welcome. There was a thorough presentation on ethics and consent, with frank and open discussion of some subtleties, and emphasis on how clear consent is both necessary and fun. I was especially fond of the male instructor’s clarification about why a beginner’s enthusiasm could potentially lead to trouble, and how a “no” really needn’t be seen as a personal rejection.
The actual rope skill lesson involved single and double columns and a basic chest harness. Rope was provided for those of us who didn’t have it (along with advice on what kind and how much to get). The instructions were quite clear. One more instructor to help check work, solve problems, and answer questions probably would have helped a little, but nobody had any significant problems. And it was a lot of fun! I was impressed at how effectively they taught these three basics. My partner and I have been able to practice them at home, continuing to learn . It’s probably also worth mentioning that the rope work was pretty hot. 😉 Nice job! We’ll be returning for a 101 class." – Richard

"I attended the RPI Safety and Intro Class to broaden knowledge of Rope Bondage. I was quite impressed with the Class structure and how the friendly instructors broke down the art of rope bondage. I would highly recommend this class for any singles or couples that want to expand their horizon." - Diz

"I can’t say enough good things about All Tied Up’s Safety and Introduction class. Rope always seemed very daunting to me, but Dan and Renee created a comfortable space to learn about the actual risks while making it approachable. They addressed so much more than just the rope and ties! It is definitely a path that you can follow to as much community and connection as you are looking for. Plus, they’re funny and engaging. The class is long, but the time flew by. I will definitely be back to learn more from them!" – Helen

"Coming from San Francisco I have been to bunch of kinky classes and All Tied Up is as good as it gets. They cover safety and try to scare you off a bit. They introduce you to the excitement, sensuality and playfulness of rope as well as basic ideas and techniques. The first course introduces you to broad rope concepts but it also teaches you some skills that you could be mastering for years. While focused on rope there is also enough coverage of general kink skills: negotiation, styles, etc., to get you started or take you further. Just as importantly, All Tied Up can be a warm and helpful community with plenty of events and people to take your new interest in rope as far as your heart desires. You have to show up and put some work into it but whether you are looking for just a taste or a college level experience All Tied Up is a good group. A lot of thought and love has obviously been put into the courses and the community." – Will
