All Tied Up Events!
Well done introduction and Creation of community
I attended the intoductory Safety class. It was my first time being courageous enough to go to a seemingly obscure location to meet up with others who express interest in bondage. I didn’t know how the quality would be, but somehow I trusted All Tied Up SD to get it right. I was greeted by a lot of very friendly, cheerful and colorful people who mostly seemed to know each other. Who was new was quickly introduced to everyone else and the room was full with a good 25 people. Dan, who introduced the class did the magic of remembering everyone’s name, and Renee then gave a great Safety class. The practice part was fun too, with 3 different small ties and knots being taught. I felt completely safe, and welcomed at this event, and will look forward to build more community the next time around. Thank you for offering this and for providing a safe space in ehio trust and openness seem to be the foremost features.
Friendly, welcoming, and far less intimidating than you probably imagine!
Let me start by saying that I’ve been in the lifestyle for 20+ years. I’ve seen a lot of intense and intimidating classes, and some very mediocre gatherings trying to pass themselves off as classes. Happily, this was neither! When my wife suggested that we take a shibari/rope class, I honestly wasn’t sure who or what to expect. I had the mental image of some ancient sensei cracking a bamboo crop, or the leather guy from The Village People. And I was positive we were going to be the only couple our age, let alone so vanilla in appearance.
What we found upon arriving is an amazing group of people who openly talk about an artistic subject that has so many facets. The owners are fantastically informative, creative, humorous, and knowledgeable. Every step of the class, we were nodding along or grinning from ear to ear. The other beginners and staff were everyday people who all share a passion for rope. Couples and singles alike; absolute newbies (we’re talking just discovered rope and the community within recent weeks) to those that have been doing this and have been a part of the kink community for years; all gathered and sharing a great learning experience. I honestly felt more at ease and safer in this class than I have in many other social occasions. We had so much fun with the Safety&Intro Class that we’ve already signed up for the 101 classes!
So much respect to Dan & Renee for developing this open and enjoyable way to get into shibari in a safe and inviting setting! I honestly cannot say enough how great this experience has been so far! I am looking forward to where this all leads!
Excellent Intro & Safety Class
There was so much great information in this class! I especially enjoyed the information provided on the culture including etiquette how communication is really essential in so many ways to having a positive experience. The rope instruction was great and I’m looking forward to learning and experiencing more!
The perfect level of instruction
The class was fun, informative and packed with great people. Time flys by and this class is full of useful information and the instruction is clear and easy to follow.
Inviting safe rope space
I’ve been trying to get into rope for a few years on my own, watching YouTube videos and trying to search the web. It’s been a difficult journey until I found all tied up. What I have been trying to learn for a few years, I’ve learned in a few months thanks to the helpful teachers and people in in this community. I am very grateful to have this space to learn and to experience safe and fun shibari.
Very informative and welcoming!
The class was extremely welcoming and very informative. Dan and Renee cover everything from consent to safety to where to buy supplies. It was well worth the cost of admission. It was also great to meet other people interested in rope!
Comprehensive and great for Beginners
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.
Love getting tied!
I absolutely love this group! They put on excellent practice sessions and play parties that are tons of fun!
Awesome Intro into the Community
SirKnottyDan taught a very informative and well structured class. The atmosphere was relaxed.We spent a fair amount of time discussing the complexity of rope tying, beyond just learning the actual physical act. I would highly recommend to beginners and anyone looking to explore something new.
Opportunity to Explore
Educational, interesting, highly recommend. So many principals that apply to real life (totally unexpected). Excellent communication, time flew by. Thank you!
