European Rigger Exchange

EURIX IX

Posted on August 01 2016 by RopeMarks

The EURIX has been organised eight times by now and the RopeMarks schedule never seemed to align to be able to visit. This Autumn the stars are aligned, RopeMarks will attend and present at the ninth edition of EURIX.

Before the event the rope-scene gets anxious, lots of talk and expectations about the upcoming EURIX, after the event praise all-over. This year I'm there for the experience. RopeMarks together with a host of awesome scene/rope-people will be there to present.

Come up and say hi, bring drinks and we'll chat... or something :)

Ellipsis Rope Event

the first

Posted on April 03 2016 by RopeMarks

Last weekend we participated in the first Ellipsis Rope Event - it was one awesome experience where we provided our "The Rope, The Ring, The Knockout" and a two day RopeMark Ryu learning experience.  I  have every intention to write about, but could not do it better than the organiser himself:

120 visitors, 3 performers and 2 workshops... I think we're off to a good start ;)

With the help of RopeMarks, Asiana, Shikara, Voleuse, Funmaatje and Tina we were able to provide this evening with an awesome program. The Ellipsis Team did an amazing job helping out whenever and wherever needed and there was a lot of unexpected help from Rope Tower regulars when it was time to clean up at the end

Open doors and workshops (1900 - 2145)

People arrived at a slow pace (as expected) and seemed to like the new venue right away. When the first workshop began there were a few too many couples participating at first but this was easily resolved ;). The workshops looked fun and the participants as well as the spectators seemed to be enjoying themselves. Someome noted that the workshop area could have been moved to the center of the room so that more people would be able to watch… I made note of that for next time ;). At the end our lovely flowergirl provided the workshop hosts with beautiful bouquets which she had made herself earlier that day.

Intro and special appearance (2145 – 2215)

After a short “Hey you guys, great to see you, this is what this evening is about” by yours truly, we had a special surprise from London. The lovely Nina Russ (well known rigger, teacher and co-organiser of Bound and her model Sophia had taped a special HELLO ROPE PEOPLE OF HOLLAND video as an introduction for the evening and to the video of their performance at Bound in May 2015

Performances (2215 - 0030)

The first performance was by Voleuse and myself. Due to a change in the program we had about a week and a half to prepare and Voleuse was still sore from Eurix, but fuck it! Lets do this! :P We had a great time! A few hiccups here and there but nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a smile and a face slap…

Asiana and Shikara were up next. With Spanish music and the sun in their back they gave an amazing performance. The room was deadly quiet as everyone watched their beautiful show.

Last but not least… RopeMarks! A energetic boxing match with matching music, great visuals and fantastic ropework. It was clear to see these pro’s really enjoyed themselves on stage. What a performance…

BoundCon XI

2014

Posted on May 15 2015 by RopeMarks

It is that time of the the year again! We’re looking forward to it like Christmas, but in shorts...

This is a big blog entry, if you're feeling impatient, here's a video impression of RopeMarks @ BoundCon.

Download this video.

RopeMarks @ BoundCon

RopeMarks booth @ BoundConThe RopeMarks presence on BoundCon seems to grow by the year (and we love it!), this year we had a combined booth together with BindMe and Matthias Grimme creating one monster of a place for people to get rope and see rope.

 

BoundCon show planThis time we got booked for three big-ass prime-time main-stage acts, three custom photo shoots and one 4 hour workshop. On top of this we had continues bondage activities in the booth

RopeMarks, Safiya Winta, Dutch Dame, SerendipityBecause of the size of the booth and presence in activities we had this year we brought reinforcements in the form of Safiya Winta and Serendipity to help out.

Day 1

Video capture of RopeMarks vs Raven and NadjaThe first day of BoundCon I had the pleasure of a custom photo shoot with Raven C. and Nadja Nice. First time models for me, no plan so I decided to go bad-ass on them and make them suffer… a little… This has been captured on video and will be available on Club RopeMarks (http://www.ClubRopeMarks.com) soon.

 

The other obligation was the first of three prime-time mainstage shows - this time based on the PlayStation game Kuon together with Safiya Winta.

Day 2

Rain De Grey and Red HibiscaThe second day of BoundCon or as I like to call it the “crazy day”, this is the day the venue is filled to the max with visitors and there is no time to breathe… which gave me an idea for the custom photo shoot of today that I was honored to do with the awesome Rain DeGrey and Red Hibisca as my willing models. This has been captured on video and will be available on Club RopeMarks (http://www.ClubRopeMarks.com) soon.

Dutch Dame, Safiya Winta and Rain DeGrey

The other obligation of today was our second primetime mainstage show of this BoundCon - this time we went with a fetish medical theme; I love these on “crazy day”, the number of people watching your show is just insane. The biggest crowd we performed for must be around 3000 people and the smallest two! This is somewhere in between.

My ropes are professionally escaped...Somewhere during the event I was asked to participate in a bondage challenge (tying up a pretty girl and she then has to escape the bondage); how could I say no… Well… if I knew she would escape I probably would have saved myself the embarrassment...

 

In between the activities there was some bondage in our booth with Boiled bean (The lovely partner of maestro Quartacorda); I displayed a totally sensory deprived Safiya Winta in front of a big crowd and played around with a metal-collared Pling.

The BoundCon event also comes with one awesome fetish party, the SubRosaDictum party. As it so happened we got invited to perform on this parties mainstage as well. Since this a rubber-fetish party we came up with something appropriate and… extreme - including some bondage as well… just the way we like it!

Download this video.

RopeMarks live @ SubRosaDictum

After the work it’s good partying; with Mr. BindMe - Maurice, Max Kuhl, Safiya Winta and others.

Party with Mr BindMe Party Party with Max Kuhl Dutch Dame The stunning Safiya Winta

 

Day 3

The third day is usually a more relaxed day… except for me - feeling quite broken from the SubRosaDictum party - busting my balls teaching Japanese bondage to a group of enthusiastic people; having Safiya Winta as my lovely crash test dummy was a big added bonus to a very smooth and fun workshop.

Blond propertiesAnd when the cat's away… my blond property found someone else's blond property…

As always one of the things I look forward too is seeing the friends who live far away, talking, laughing, drinking a cocktail (or two) and meeting new people and sometimes friends. On the pictures you see: Mr BoundCon - Andreas, Damon Pierce, Max Kuhl, Anna Rose, Pling and Safiya Winta.

GiftsAn added bonus to BoundCon are the gifts we get to take home every year. The loot of this year is a framed Konijn original drawing, bubbles that go very well with the Norwegian chocolate and some maintenance oil for my ropes - thank you everybody!

 

Now: If I might believe the inquiries in mailbox and text-messages on my phone a lot of people have heard a rumour that they didn’t expect, or believe. The rumour is true, I’m sorry to say… We will not be attending the 2015 BoundCon XII.

"See you soon" align

However, since we need to be in the neighborhood that period we will be at BoundCon XII during “crazy day” (the Saturday). But we will just be there as guests and have no plans to be active… but… this thing we do… it’s in my blood… so….

You can also catch us on and on the SubRosaDictum party with a kick-ass main stage act together with Anna Rose.

A weekend with RopeMarks

Review of Kink & Kinbaku, Norway.

Posted on March 21 2015 by RopeMarks

We have had the most amazing, bondage, weekend in Norway and I have been dying to write about it; but the organization beat me to it and I can not do a better job at blowing my horn as their review :)

Here it is:

--

It´s Friday.  The sun is shining (does not happen too often here), we´re at this really nice location, weekend coming up…what could possibly make it better??  Well, add Bob from Ropemarks, beautiful Dutch-Dame and a bunch of very excited riggers and bunnies from all over Norway and it´s just perfect.

The workshop

Bob is a fantastic teacher. We already knew that,but every time we meet him he takes it up another notch. This time he had quite a challenging task: Two days of workshops, no suspension points for the participants and a group of riggers and bunnies with various degree of experience.

Using both his historical and cultural knowledge, his vast experience and his creativity Bob centered the teachings around the timeline of the gote. He used variations of the gote as a starting points for full body ties and for layering tie upon tie. As soon as he was sure the riggers had gotten the basics, Bob encouraged everyone to play around and to be creative, and to work towards developing their own style instead of simply copying someone elses work.

Teaching Tengu shibari

This way, the participants not only gained technical knowledge, but also a deeper understanding of the concept of kinbaku and more confidence in doing their own thing. This is so important in todays rope community where so many proclaimed «experts» are simply copying other riggers work (up to copying their exact workshops!), and also being very dogmatic about their style being «the one twue way» and that there are exact ways you have to follow in order to be connective with rope. In Norway we have this saying «A little knowledge can be dangerous», meaning if you don´t know how much there is to learn about something, it´s easy to be dogmatic. As a teacher, Bob is the opposite of dogmatic, and his enthusiasm for the other riggers ideas and styles at the workshop showed a confidence and humbleness lacking in many other riggers.

Bob would not be Bob without DD, and having her around for a whole weekend is just really a treat. She provided lots of great tips and hints for the bunnies, and having such an experienced model around to ask questions is very helpful.

The show

On our two last events we have hosted large parties. That is A LOT of work. So this time, we decided to just do a small party with the workshop participants and a few extra ropey people who couldn´t make it to the workshop. The highlight of the evening was, of course, the show.

Beautiful suffering by DD

The party started with a light meal, and then everyone gathered in the largest room of the location, excited to see the show.  As always, it was fantastic.  It´s impossible not to be impressed by Bob´s amazing techniqual skills, his speed, his sense of humour and stage presence.  

As a bunny, I´m always equally impressed by DDs fantastic strength and flexibility, she is one tough and talented bunny!  The things that girl can do and still be smiling…there are not many bunnies in the world that can match her skills and grace.  And together, the two of them are just dynamite.  It´s so obvious that they enjoy both each other and what they do, and Bobs evil ideas and wicked grins contrasts DDs calm beauty perfectly.  

Still smiling!

The party

The fact that everyone had been truly inspired by the show and workshops became apparent very soon – just minutes after the show people were tying each other everywhere. The evening was very cozy and intimate, and so successful that we will probably repeat the «small-party-formula» for our next event.

The surprise

Master hurt his hand a few days before the workshop, and while he was able to follow the teachings at the workshop he had to take it easy at the party. Which gave yours truly a chance to be rigged by DD. Yes, you read that right…surprise, the multi-talented DD can also do rope! With a very elegant and considerate approach to it. It was really fun to be her first bunny. Watch out, you other riggers out there…

From Bergen Kink&Kinbaku, a very big thank you to both Bob and Dutch-Dame for making yet another trip to Norway. Getting a chance to learn from you means so much to the Norwegian rope scene. We are already getting e-mails asking when you will be back!

For BK&K,
cilie

The London Festival of the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage

the fifth edition, 2013

Posted on February 07 2015 by RopeMarks

Finding our way in LondonWhat's in a name? In the end not much, it's content that determines value, but let's use the slightly easier abbreviation: LFAJRB.

Naka Akira and RopeMarksSugiuara Norio with RopeMarks In the field of content this edition of the LFAJRB had nothing to complain for me. The main attractions for me where the presence of bondage God Naka Akira and photographer supreme Sugiura Norio. Both brought their respected lovely models Iroha Shizuki and Ikeda Miho.

Naka-san and Sugiura-san provided workshops and Naka-san also provided a main stage act. A treat for the visitors of the event. Same as our Japanese visitors, RopeMarks was at the LFAJRB to provide workshops and a main stage act. 

Over the years RopeMarks has grown into being the main- or closing-act of an event (see us live and you know why!), this time the closing act was obviously Naka-sama. RopeMarks had the honour to be the support act for Naka Akira. This did make us a little nervous but pride won.

Shows, demonstrations, on Japanese rope bondage events sometimes tend to be very serious (and a dime a dozen). Our intent was to liven-up the place with a fun- fast paced show based on the popular TV-show SouthPark. Also we wanted to have a party on stage... Check out the video of the show, we decided to provide you with the entire show, no cuts, enjoy!

Among the best feedback of the show was "I wished you guys could stay on stage longer" and "All I wanted to do was party". Here are a few more visuals of the show:

Carabineers

Posted on November 17 2014 by RopeMarks

Carabineers

A recent carabineer failure at a Circus performance has raised some important questions in the aerial arts community. While I know very little about what caused this particular failure, I want to address some general things about the pros and cons of carabineers and how they fail.

Materials

Carabineers are made of either steel or aluminum. Steel is a very ductile metal - meaning that it deforms (bends and stretches) long before it breaks. This is good because it usually gives the user a chance to see that the metal has been stressed well beyond the working load limits long before it breaks. Aluminum has very little deformation before it breaks (literally snaps); therefore, there is no warning that the metal has been over-stressed. Also, aluminum has "micro-cracks" and imperfections that are impossible to see with the naked eye. I always recommend steel carabineers for aerial work.

Bend carabineerThis steel carabineer was pulled to destruction. Note how the pin on the gate is torn out. When this occurred, the integrity of the carabineer was lost, and the body began to bend open.

Locking and non-locking gates

The gate of a carabineer not only holds part of the load, but is also critical to the overall strength of the carabineer. What most people do not realize is that the gate of a carabineer can be "popped" open by a shock load, and if this happens, the carabineer immediately loses most of its strength. For example: an aluminum carabineer with a 24 kN BS with the gate closed, is only rated for 7 kN when the gate is open; a steel carabineer rated for 45 kN with the gate closed is only rated for 15 kN with the gate open. To prevent the gate from accidentally opening, I recommend that aerials use carabineers with a locking gate. (I like auto-locking gates because the user cannot forget to lock them).

Snapped carabineerThe gate of this aluminum carabineer "popped" open under a shock load, and the body snapped into two pieces.

Carabineers vs. Shackles

Aerial performers like carabineers because they are easy to connect and disconnect with one hand; they do not have any parts (shackle pins) to drop. However, carabineers are (for the most part) "recreational hardware" and not intended for industrial use. Also, many users of carabineers do not know that the rating on a carabineer is its breaking strength and that 1 kN is equal to 224.8 pounds. The weakest part of a carabineer is the gate (even a carabineer with a locking gate). When a load is on the carabineer, part of the load is held by the gate - it is in tension. Because the gate holds part of the load, the gate should be carefully checked before each use. Check to ensure that the gate is working properly - does it close easily and completely with any issues? Check the "pin" on the gate and the "hook" on the body of the carabineer. If either of these show any damage, or if the carabineer does not close easily and completely, discard the carabineer.

Shackles are industrial hardware. They are rated with a working load limit (WLL) - often in tons. The actually breaking strength is often 5 or 6 times the WLL. Unlike a carabineer, the gate of the shackle (the shackle pin) is in a "double-shear." Metal is much stronger under a double-shear forge than under tension. Shackles are only made of steel, so they deform long before they fail. You should always check to ensure that the pin of the shackle is not bent and that it screws completely into place in the body of the shackle. If the pin is bent or the pin does not screw completely into the body of the shackle, discard it. Also, "mousing" the shackle pin with wire or a nylon tie is important if the loads swings or is in place for an extended period of time.

What if you drop a carabineer on a concrete floor?

Probably everyone has heard that if you drop a shackle or carabineer on a concrete floor, you should discard it - right? Well, maybe this report from Richard Delaney in Australia might provide some insight into this myth.

I discussed our destructive testing of 100 biners in a thread a while back. We were donated a bunch of alloy bineers that had been 'retired' so we dropped them all 5 meters onto concrete 5 times and then gave 20 of these some extra special treatment with a lump hammer to give them the sort of injury that would stop most normal people from using them. Then, we broke them all. All broke at or above rated strength, except one - ... this still could have been one of the 3 in ten-thousand that will break low even brand new off the shelf.

Also, I did 3 steel and 3 aluminum a while back that had been dropped 275m onto plate steel over concrete. Aluminum broke above rated; steel were deformed and unusable post drop.

The one in the 100 that broke low was about 10% below rated from memory. Hence, I'm a big fan of reputable manufacturers who proof load all bineers to 1/2 mbs.

Pile of broken carabineersSome of the carabineers Richard destructively tested.

To sum this up, if the carabineer is not bent and the gate operates properly after a short drop, it is OK.

Design factors

As noted above, most industrial hardware has a design factor or either 5 or 6, whereas recreational hardware is not rated with a working load limit, but with its breaking strength. When suspending humans, a design factor of 10 or greater is recommended. Even then, that does not guarantee that a failure will not occur.

When possible, there should never be a situation where the failure of a single component can result in a catastrophic failure. In other words, include a backup for every component, and if some component cannot be backed up, make sure the design factor is double what you would normally use and that you inspect it very carefully before every use.

Conclusion

For industrial applications, or where shock loads are common, locking steel carabineers are usually fine for most aerial work if the design factor is 10 or above. Still, careful inspections of all your equipment is the best way to prevent an accident, so inspect, inspect, inspect.

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 :))

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.
