Tutorials …by Difficulty
Here you can plan your learning journey based on the difficulty of the technique.
If you have not already done so, start with my Core Knowledge page. That is my 100-level course on Rope Bondage. It takes you through the foundation material in order. Other tutorials will assume you know the Core.
Core and Easy – I assume you are starting at the very beginning and show every step in excruciating detail.
I also spend more time on safety and style/technique–where to place your fingers and how in order to minimize movement, etc…
Intermediate – I assume you know the Core material very well and that you have practiced it. I also assume you have experience with many of the other Easy tutorials as well.
I still show most steps in great detail, but on occasion may not show the detail for a Core technique. (i.e. I may say “finish with a square knot” or “lock off with two half hitches” and not show the step-by-step how to do so)
Advanced – I assume you know the Core material cold and have significant experience with your rope handling and various ties at the Easy and Intermediate level.
I will “put a lark’s head single column around your partner’s upper chest” and just show you a single picture with that already done, and expect you to know what to do without me having to go into detail. This compresses 15 steps into 1 and allows me to give advanced tutorials without having them be hundreds of steps long…
