Event description

Description

Osada Steve is recognised as one of the world’s top bakushi, based on both his professional experience as well as having been a student of Grandmasters Osada Eikichi (whose name he carries today), Akechi Denki and Yukimura Haruki. He is the only Westerner to have reached a high enough skill level to become a professional in the Japanese shibari scene, having done thousands of live performances and tying for videos and photographs.

In terms of teaching Osada Steve is regarded as an inspiring teacher, having hosted students from around the globe at his dojo in Tokyo for the last 15 years, with many students returning multiple times to continue their studies. This experience has meant that Osada Steve has honed his approach to teaching and finding ways to bring out the best in his students.


This will be the last stop in Osada Steve’s three-month tour of North America and Europe, and for his final country he has decided to stay in only one city to dedicate himself to Oz Kink Fest, where he will be doing workshops and performing at Hellfire Resurrection. Tickets for all the Oz Kink Fest events can be found here.


These workshops are an exciting opportunity to learn authentic shibari from one of the best in the world, without having to travel to Japan. Barkas, the Osada ryū instructor in Vancouver, said it well when he wrote:


You will not come out with 6 new hishi patterns and 3 new transitions. Instead your tying will change.

You will come out and know more ways how to approach the person in ropes with love, care, and compassion. It is a transformative workshop entirely focussed on the connection between the people involved.



The contents of the workshops will be decided on the day by Osada Steve, based on the participants. Whilst the tickets list levels, these are just meant to be indicative - no matter your level, you will learn something new.
