Safety and Introduction Class (Prerequisite)
This is the most detailed and thorough rope safety and introduction class in the United States! You will spend 3 hours in direct instruction with our trained staff. By the time you leave you will have either tied or been tied in three different ties that will give you lots of opportunities after class. Plus, you'll get the opportunity, after class, to join the largest rope community in Southern California! This amazing community is about more than just rope and can help you to connect with others, and improve your skills!

You will leave the event with new knowledge and new things to practice and use at home and at future rope events!
Note: We also offer a beginner and advanced class. The 101 class is for those who have been through the Safety and Introduction class and looking to start adding tools to the their toolbox. The 201+ class on 1st OR 2nd Saturdays is a good place to move beyond beginning rope. Event dates fluctuate so check the dates on the calendar.
