Welcome! Spring Tiger Ryu is a place for you to explore, create, learn, and practice the beauty, art, and history of Japanese Kinbaku (erotic rope bondage). Our classes, workshops, photography satsueikai, life drawing opportunities, and other special events integrate Japanese cultural touchstones (like kimono, ikebana, and folklore) and position kinbaku in historical context from the Edo-era samurai to current events. As of January 2020, we are opening all events to one photographer and one artist looking for life-drawing opportunities. Get a special discount code by contacting zElement@springTigerRyu.com.
