RopeMarks Ryu

visual, searchable kinbaku glossary

Posted on September 24 2014 by RopeMarks

The RopeMarks kinbaku glossary, now part of RopeMarks Ryu, has seen a complete make-over.

To the best of my knowledge this is now the first visual searchable kinbaku glossary and the best thing is, we won't stop there (cliffhanger :))

Go check out the RopeMarks Ruy searchable visual glossary here:

Wild beaming

with Hester Scheurwater

Posted on September 23 2014 by RopeMarks

Some time... years ago (three and a half to be exact) I made a casual remark about cooperating in a wild beam action. Now, I think it is about time that we show you the results...

Together with Dutch artist Hester Scheurwater we created two Japanese bondage scenes (shibari / kinbaku) ment for projection on tall and large buildings, wild beaming. Without further ado, a few short clips of the scenes projected on building in the Netherlands.

Wild beaming with Hester Scheurwater

During the creation of the video for wild beaming Hester made some behind the scene shots that we think are worth it to be seen:

RopeMarks Ryū

lifestyle, courses, tuition, workshops

Posted on September 14 2014 by RopeMarks

The past period we have been spending a lot of time to innovate our previous workshop section into something vastly more appropriate; 

RopeMarks Ryū.

RopeMarks Ryū is one of, if not, the oldest traditional Japanese rope bondage Ryū in the Netherlands and Europe.

RopeMarks Ryu glossary screen printWe think that besides the unique RopeMarks style that we are offering to teach we also have something that has not been seen in the scene before, a visual, searchable glossary. The current body already holds a vast amount of names and terms and with the information we got coming it is looking forward to become a tome of quick searchable knowledge, with pictures.

See for yourself

Against all good advice we will blow our own horn and show all the good things people have said about RopeMarks, our teaching, our experience and our high level of knowledge in the testimonials section.

"[...]his experience is so big, it radiates from him."

"Not only is Bob an impressive rigger, he also has the ability to transfer his vast knowledge in a solid and entertaining manner."

See for yourself

Keep in mind that all of this is just the start of the RopeMarks Ryū section. You can look forward to free video tutorials more information on the subject of Japanese rope bondage and a real life Amsterdam based Dojo. We are really looking forward to the direction this is going.  or

Club update, The Pillory

with Dutch Dame

Posted on September 04 2014 by RopeMarks

The Pillory, with Dutch DameWe have spend an awesome time in a medieval dungeon with among others a working pillory. A pillory that we just had to put to the test, RopeMarks style!

We have the amazing Dutch Dame strip to nothing but her high heels, then place her in the pillory. A small shock goes through her body when it closes around her neck and she realizes this experience is going to be for real.

The pillorie's holes for the wrist are relativly big, to keep Dutch Dame from getting her hands out we put some rough metal cuffs on her wrists, beautifully appropriate for the location.

As a warm-up, and make the experience as real as it gets we leave her there for some time... Next time we must have a clock next to the equipment

Next we lower the pillory, forcing our beautiful victim in a bend-over position and tie her ankles, spread legged, to the rings at the side of the platform she stands on.

A butt exposed like that is screaming for a spanking... so we comply, and just for good measure we decorate her tits with a pair of painful nipple clamps.

By now resting her neck and wrists on the hard wood, the rough and heavy metal wrist cuffs, the nipple clamps and the uncomfortable forced bend-over position is causing some very sexy movements from Dutch Dame that we enjoy much. We see no reason to interrupt this scene.

Next we lower the pillory to its lowest position forcing Dutch Dame on her knees and making it more difficult not to rest her neck on the hard wood. The strain on her amazing body is showing and she is searching for the most comfortable position to be able to handle this torment... but, really, there is none.

As our final torment, mix in some kinbaku in this medieval scene, we apply a ryo-ashi sakasa zuri. We suspend our willing victim by the ankles only while still in the pillory torment. This is forcing her neck to rest on the hard wood, in effect chocking her (a beautiful struggle) her wrists with rough metal cuffs are going nowhere but are a torment for her arms as she struggles for freedom and her nipple clamps are swaying like flowers in the wind causing sweet torment on her nipples with every movement.
