The Takate Kote, or Box Tie, is often considered the most foundational tie of Japanese bondage. While the arm position is simple, the tie itself is complex, subtle, and potentially dangerous. This class provides an introduction to the basic 2-rope Takate Kote in the Akechi Denki style from which the most popular modern designs are derived. We'll focus on the fundamentals of achieving good tension and structure, and call out the hidden moves used by professional riggers to make this deeply meticulous tie appear easy.
