Look at what people are saying about
All Tied Up Events!
All tied up provides excellent rope instruction at very reasonable prices. Dan and Rob’s passion for rope and sharing their skills is obvious in every class they teach. The progression of skills presented is well thought out and presented at a challenging but achievable pace. Classes provide a strong emphasis on safety and consent – something that every aspiring rigger should be keenly interested in.
In addition to teaching the skills of rope bondage, All Tied Up has managed to build up a really nice community of rope kinksters. All tied up hosts munches to encourage social interaction between attendees. I have always felt welcomed and respected by everyone associated with this organization.
Some persnickety suggestions to improve the classes:
The layout of the space that All Tied Up primarily uses functions well as a dungeon (its primary purpose) but poses challenges as a classroom. I suggest that the space that is currently designated “the stage” is not ideally suited to allow the best viewing angle to the greatest number of people. I often find myself watching the side of a tie being performed and it is difficult to understand what is being done. As most tops need to relocate themselves closer to the stage to see the tie being performed anyways, I propose moving the area where tying is demonstrated to in between floor locations 15 and 18, or in between floor locations 1 and 3.
Paper handouts are distributed at the beginning of each class. I generally find these useful both during the class and as a reference after. I think these handouts would be even more powerful pedagogical tools if they were emailed out a couple days before: this would allow more novice riggers (like me) to develop some familiarity with the topics that are to be covered and ensure they are preserved for posterity for people who are good at keeping track of electronic files but not paper (also like me).
Overall, I greatly appreciate the opportunity to learn from Dan and Rob and would recommend this organization to anyone interested in rope bondage. Coming to All Tied Up events is one of the highlights of my month.
Thank you for the review and thoughts! We love having you both at the classes! We’d love to find a space more conducive to the class setting and we are grateful to have the space we do have! If you know of something, please let me know! We will have to discuss further the emailing of the handout head of time. Unfortunately, in some cases the handout is being finalized the night before the class, thus making emailing it difficult, but definitely something to consider. Look forward to seeing you and your partner at future events! -Dan
The All Tied Up classes, rope community, and events have been an overwhelmingly positive part of my experience in San Diego. The knowledge and experience readily available through helpful staff, the unique focus on consent, safety, and risk education and awareness, and the obvious organization and thoroughness in classes makes ATU’s rope instruction invaluable to the new rigger or bottom. From the first munch and RP&I, the friendly and inclusive people who make up the community are an inseparable part of what makes ATU special. Will always consider ATU in San Diego my home for rope, and look forward to returning every time.
Thank you! You are missed!
A Very informative and fun learning experience
Myself and Kissed by Fire attended our safety 101 class Held by Sir Knotty Dan and the All Tied Up San Diego team. We had a blast Dan was very Knowledgeable and pointed us in the right direction. We plan on Attending more All Tied up Events. The House of Black was very welcoming. I have never been to a Dungeon but I feel that Kissed By Fire and myself will become regulars to the Rope Community if the other events are as fun as this one.
We have a lot to learn and Dan and Renae seem like a fun loving open people who are there to help. Thank You All Tied Up. We will see you soon
