NOVEMBER 13, 2011 ROPESHARE [Nov. 5th, 2011|12:51 pm]
A RopeShare attendee blogged:

"Yesterday I went to the RopeShare Dojo. It was amazing. I learned so much about basic rope play and the teachers, assistants and fellow students were all great. That I could just walk off the street into a beautiful studio and be among other friendly, accomplished, funny, smart, kinky people interested in rope play was transforming."

MASTER MIKE has been practicing Japanese rope bondage since 2006 and is a graduate of tyutumi's shibari class. His proficiency as a roper prompted an invitation to join Tyutumi's monthly rope dojo, and he has been a valued instructor at Rope Share. He holds a certificate from Midori's intensive Rope Bondage workshop. Master Mike completed the six-month GMSMA novices special interest group in 2006 and was an active member of GMSMA until 2009. He enjoys teaching others what he knows about rope and creating imaginative, safe bondage scenes. Master Mike's effectiveness as a rope instructor derives from his authority, clarity and gentleness.
