Rope 101 Instructional Class
The Rope 101 Instruction Class is an optional class designed to give those new to rope the chance to learn from an experienced instructor how to improve their rope work at a 101 level. It is a class that is Tie-Oriented class, meaning we want to teach how to tie and be tied in a variety of ties. Additionally, we will discuss the importance of giving feedback (both Tops & bottoms) and being an active participant during the tie.
To Take This Class You Must:
• have already been through the Safety & Introduction (S&I) Class.
• have your own partner (who has been through the S&I Class), rope, and other materials needed for the class. You are welcome to come on your own, but there is no guarantee that you will tie or be tied unless you find someone at the event willing to work with you. It is also okay just to watch!
