Osada-Ryu Video Tutorials from Yukinaga Max
Some months ago, Yukinaga Max 雪長マックス (Copenhagen Shibari Dojo owner and Osada Steve 長田スティーブ Sensei’s disciple) made a series of short video-tutorials in which he explains only some elements (only a few) that are used during the practice of Japanese Kinbaku from an Osada-Ryu (Osada school) perspective.
Please keep in mind that these videos were made only to illustrate the western viewers not just about the meaning of the Japanese concepts, but also about the cultural and philosophical fundamental differences between western bondage practices and Japanese Shibari/Kinbaku (which roots directly from one of ancient Budei Juhappan’s 18 warrior skills mastered by Samurai during Tokugawa era in Japan). Both practices should be respected “per se” and they should use their own language to describe themselves.
If you want to learn Japanese Shibari/Kinbaku please contact Osada Steve Sensei in http://www.osada-ryu.com/ or Yukinaga Max in Copenhagen Shibari Dojo or in any other Official Osada-Ryu Dojos around the world (you can find a list of them clicking here).
Please look at the videos in the suggested order so that you would be able to understand better what Yukinaga Max wanted to explain.
