Semi-Open Rope

2023-06-24 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm MDT

Semi-Open Rope is a gathering for people interested in all forms of rope bondage. While KNM’s focus is Japanese Kinbaku, we welcome anyone who would like to meet with others sharing an interest in rope.

Semi-Open Rope is hosted on Saturday evenings. Other events to be scheduled based on input from attendees.

Important – If you want to attend our events, read all of this:
This is NOT a Public Event. If you have not attended an event at KNM in the past 18 months, please read the About KNM Page, and use the Contact Form. Introduce yourself, and give a brief summary of your interest and/or experience with Rope Bondage. We will then contact you.

We use email for Invitations. Period.

Please be serious about attending. Reserving a place and not showing-up is considered bad manners.  Doing so (without some sort of prior notice) will put you at the bottom of the list for future events.
Reservations close on the Thursday before the event.  Final invitations are sent on Friday.

Space is Limited:
The KNM Juku is an intimate space. No more than 6-8 guests will be allowed.

Health/Covid Safety:
Let’s not allow politics to interfere. We are no longer asking for proof of vaccination status, and do not require masks.  However, if you have chosen or have medical reasons to not be fully vaccinated, please do not RSVP for this event.  If you feel safer wearing a mask, please do.  If you are or have been under the weather, please wait until you feel better before attending.

What should you bring?
• An open mind.
• A willingness to meet and interact with others interested in rope bondage.
• Rope. We recommend at least 3 or 4 lengths of rope, preferably Jute, 7-8 meters in length, and 5-6mm in diameter.
• Someone to tie.  These events are geared towards couples.
• Please Note –
– Singles wishing to top: we have no mechanism in place to gain the advance consent of other participants to being observed.  If you’d like to attend, find someone to tie and bring them along.
– Singles wishing to be tied: we occasionally allow for this, if you’re willing to be tied during demonstrations.

Don’t have rope of your own?
We have limited rope available for use. And we always have rope for sale – both for beginners, and high-quality professional Jute.

Why is there a fee?
There is no required fee for participation in this event. We appreciate donations (suggested minimum of $5 per person) to help maintain the space, equipment, and provide for rope we loan to participants.
When events become instructional, we have also asked for a $20 (per couple) exchange of value.  Note that regular private sessions are $60.
If you absolutely can’t afford to donate, please let us know.  We won’t refuse you attending because of a lack of ability to pay.

Kinbaku New Mexico teaches Rope Bondage for Beginners.  And the basics of Japanese Kinbaku, Shibari, and Semenawa.  We are easily accessible to students in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Taos, NM.
