Aisatsu


Aisatsu (挨拶) in Japanese is (a) greeting. The iconic aisatsunawa (挨拶縄) techniques involve one "greeting" in the front to gauge the rope partner's sensitivity and willingness to engage in an emotional exchange.

There are three more "greetings" in the back.

The strappado version meant to check the flexibility of the rope parter.

The diamond (hishi, ) version meant to improve finger dexterity and acquire muscle memory.

The takatekote (高手小手) version meant to check the rope partner's flexibility.

In this second masterclass of Yukimura-ryu we discover the secrets of aisatsunawa, explore a few strappado themes, and delve into a floor progression that involves the Yukimura-ryu armflute (shakuhachi shibari, 尺八縛り) combined with the iconic Yukimura-ryu legbinder.

All concepts and techniques are expertly translated in Chinese.

At the end of this workshops we are discussing the secrets of ki/chi () and the philosophy of Osada-ryu.
