So what is a 201+ Class?
We have a page that lists out the type of ropey goodness one would find at different levels 101, 201, 301, etc hoping that might add more clarification.
The 201+ Class is for riggers who are “advanced beginners.” It’s primary focus is on teaching the Riggers how to Rig! The instruction is shibari style, with elements of other styles of bondage. There will be bottom-focused content offered regularly, but the main focus is on the how-to of tying. Every 201+ Class will include instruction on a specific tie, rope techniques, and soft skills.
You are an advanced beginner if you a) know basic anatomy for rope bondage and why this is important, b) know basic rope negotiation, c) you understand consent and communication, d) you know how to tie a single-column tie, a double-column tie, and an arms-free chest harness without assistance or instruction, e) you know how to extend rope, and f) you have your own rope, safety cutters, floor covering, and blindfolds (yes plural).
This class is not for everyone. It is designed for those who really want to learn all they can about rope, both hard and soft skills, and who are up for a fairly rigorous and fast-paced class. Yep, rigorous. Fast-paced. And also fun.
No one may attend class unparternered. Every rigger must have at least one bottom, and more than one bottom is fine. Given the fast-paced and advanced nature of the class, we will not have time to try to match people up, and each pair will need to have already negotiated limits and restrictions ahead of time. Therefore we cannot have any single riggers or bottoms. If you would like to attend but don’t have a partner, please let SirKnottyDan or ReneeHayBailey know and we will try to facilitate introductions.
The 201+ Class will be a three-hour event. You are encouraged to come 15 minutes early to set up, because class will start right on time. If you arrive late (and we know things happen and sometimes that can’t be avoided) we will not be able to back-up and review what was already taught.
In addition to safety cutters, floor covering, and (2) blindfolds, we recommend you have at least three lengths of rope that are in the vicinity of 25 to 30 feet, and another length of rope right around 10 or 15 feet for classes 1-4. For classes 5 - 12 we recommend six lengths of 25 to 30 feet. For classes 13+, you will need other items depending on you skill level so please contact us for specifics.
The 201+ Class occurs on the 1st Saturday of the month from 1-4pm in San Diego. Sometimes events need to be rescheduled, so please double check the event description!
If you would like to attend, please message SirKnottyDan for pre-approval.
