Drills for Rope Skills

  • Hosted by VoxBody Studio
  • Oakland, CA -
  • 24 people on the list-

If you've been in our Core Curriculum classes, you have surely heard us saying (over and over again): "Drill your ties" And we meant it too! So much so that we have decided to offer an on-going event dedicated solely to the practice of drilling the fundamentals of rope bondage.

Drilling exercises can help to improve your rope skills, rope management, and ability to move efficiently/smoothly with your rope, even when the moment might become hectic. It can also serve to build your confidence and connection with rope as your medium. Think of a dancer warming up, or a musician practicing their scales. We believe drilling can benefit those new to rope and those who have been tying for a while. 

** Join us for any or all dates: September 19, October 30, November 21!

A few notes about Drills for Rope Skills:

  • tickets are PER PERSON. Blue will set attendees up for drills either as self-ties or using furniture/props. You do not need to come with a tying partner (but if you do, please purchase two tickets).
  • These classes welcome those who’ve already attended Beginner Jams or Fundamentals classes (or comparable 101-level learning) and are ready for more practice. We will NOT teach single or double column ties during these events, and those attending should have previous experience tying them.
  • These classes are also great for those who have experience with suspension and want to refine/improve their rope flow and management.
  • Exercises will vary month to month and focus on general themes of: column ties, frictions and lock-offs, and drilling for tension and rope management.
  • Come ready to geek out on detail and repetition!!
  • Loaner rope is available for attendees, or bring your personal kit. 2 lengths of rope is all you need.
