While we do offer direct instructions at some meetings, we primarily consider ourselves a social skill-share and practice group that actively solicits peer sharing and learning while still respecting and welcoming those who would prefer to practice on their own or just observe. All levels of experience and approaches to rope are welcome at our meetings. You can come alone or with friends or partners. You can watch, self-tie, tie, or be tied. Or you can just come to meet and hang out with local rope enthusiasts. Informal guidance for beginners is available at most meetings.
We model ourselves after the founding principles of Rope Bite International, which are:
- focus on rope bondage
- inclusive and open to all
- part of the larger community (not in place of or in competition with)
- non-political (actively avoiding community drama or group politics)
- meetings range from food and talk to hands-on practice to education
