Takate Kote Drills

The takate kote is a popular class of Japanese style rope chest harnesses. Most variants are constructed from a common pool of design elements, which also appear in other Japanese and Japanese-inspired ties. This hands-on class will introduce and drill design elements common to most TK forms, emphasizing efficient tying and good rope handling techniques. With practice, the student will build muscle memory for these elements, helping them excel in a subsequent class on a specific takate kote variant. Requires about six-to eight 25-30 ft. long ropes (about quarter-inch diameter) and a (patient) partner. Beginner through intermediate skill level.

Type of workshop: Demo, Hands-On


The "Fishbone" Arms-Front Chest Harness

Cannon’s “Fishbone Harness” is an advanced skill-level chest harness which attractively binds the bottom’s arms in front of their torso. It is ideal for those with limited flexibility and injuries, as well as those looking for alternatives to harnesses which bind the arms behind the back. It is suitable for intimate floorwork as well as suspension. This is a complicated tie with many steps, requiring highly proficient rope handling. Novices and intermediate-level students may find the tie to be challenging to follow along with, but are welcome to observe. At least three 25-30' lengths of rope and a partner is required. Tying this harness with rope thicker than 8mm (5/16") is very difficult.
