How to participate

For the beginner trainings, the only thing we ask is that you have already have held a rope in your hands either at a mingler or a beginner workshop (also from other teachers)

The all levels trainings bring together those who feel already solid enough with a handful of basic exercises (such as single and double column ties and some type of solid upper body tie) with those who are already on the verge to suspend or simply those who want to revisit more basic principles. Feel free to ask Barkas or one of the team if you are eligible.

The advanced trainings are reserved for those who show a strong commitment not only to Kinbaku in general but also to the school and the contents presented by Barkas and their co-instructors. It is never a bad idea to ask but participants of the advanced trainings are usually asked if they want to come to those trainings.


Costs: The trainings are $20/person. Beginning with May 2018, we will introduce a membership system.


For all of the trainings, we explicitly want to invite auditors of all levels. Beginner can see what is possible and experts can see where they might have gaps in their knowledge. (Of course, also the knowledge of each of the instructors is limited as well.)
